Guided tour to Skudeneshavn with GuideCompaniet

Overview
Details

Harmonic, maritime surroundings and charming history await in Skudeneshavn. Forget about the hectic modern lifestyle and travel back in time to the southern tip of Karmøy, where you will find the charming little town of Skudeneshavn.

It was in the 18th century that herring found its way to this little harbour town and it developed into a bustling little city.For nearly 70 years, the town was regularly visited by schools of herring, which attracted thousands of fishermen. After a short while a community emerged that is known today as "Norway's summer town". 130 small wooden houses have stood the test of time along the Skudefjord and many seahouses stand side by side and enjoy the fresh sea breeze. This little town is blessed with elegant architecture, small streets and passages, idyllic back gardens and many hidden little gems. It has one of Norway's best preserved old towns.

Your guide will take you into this historical and near fantastical little world and tell you exciting stories about its high days and maritime secrets. Hear the tales of the dangerous life of the seamen and those who tried their luck in the USA. Enjoy a lovely fish soup in one of the authentic restaurants overlooking the marina.

Duration: 4, 5 hours.
