Fjord Norway Rogaland

The North Sea Road

  • Kristiansand - Haugesund, Hå
  • +47 47307075
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Travel in the footsteps of the Vikings and experience the spectacular scenery and culture along the south coast of Western Norway. A fantastic journey you can do in a day, a week or a month.

From Kristiansand in the south to Haugesund in the north, this renowned coastal route treats you to magnificent and varied views of the North Sea. After leaving the town of Kristiansand, head northwest. You will soon leave behind the gentle landscape of Southern Norway and enter into Fjord Norway proper. The North Sea Road climbs as it winds its way past the dramatic Jøssingfjord. It continues to Egersund, a major fisheries and ferry port.

Further northwards are miles and miles of rough-hewn terrain that finally yield to the wide expanses of Jæren. Here, as far as your eye can see, are cultivated fields and sand dunes, and beaches covered with sand or pebbles. The North Sea Road continues into vibrant Stavanger.  At the end of the journey, lies Haugesund, with a memorial to Harald Fairhair, who in 872 gathered Norway into one kingdom.

The Norwegian Scenic Route Jæren is part of the North Sea Road.
