History and herrings take centre stage on this fascinating tour. See how the fish helped Haugesund thrive in the 19th century as you pass the town's grand pink Town Hall and the impressive 19th-century buildings on the ship owner's road. Cameras poised at Norway's National Monument of Unification in Haraldshaugen and at the Steinsfjellet Mountain viewpoint for stunning views across the town towards the mighty North Sea. At the Kyvik Sild Herring Factory, learn how herring was the town's lifeblood – and about salting, seasoning, maturation and preservation of what Norwegians call the silver of the sea.
