Experience the Åkrafjord and Langfoss waterfall on a bus tour with a local guide - Fiordos Noruegos

Langfoss is one of Norway's most beautiful and highest waterfalls with a drop of over 600 metres. Fioredos Noruegos takes you on a roundtrip to Langfoss waterfall in a modern tour bus.

On the way there, the first stop is the Haraldshaugen memorial that commemorates Norway becoming a unified kingdom in 872. This is a short stop for photos and also to see a cross that dates from 995. King Haakon the Good, the first Christian king of Norway, had his royal estate in this area from the year 930.


The tour then continues to Etne, an important place during the civil war era in Norway between 1130 and 1240. Erling Jarl was an important person during this period and had his seat at Etne. Etne is also known for salmon fishing and, if time permits, there will be a short photo stop at Stordalsvatnet lake.


You’ll have the chance to buy a delicious lunch at Åkrafjordtunet. The highlight of the tour is Langfoss waterfall, with a drop of 605 metres. It’s a stunning waterfall that CNN has described as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.


On the way back to the quay in Haugesund, you will pass Haugesund town hall, which was a gift to the town from shipping magnate Knut Knutsen.


The tour takes about five and a half hours.
