Welcome to Karmøy, Homeland of the Viking Kings – where it all began! Come and experience Karmøy – with crags and rocks jutting into the sea to the west. With long, silky-soft sandy beaches and breakers perpetually rolling ashore. Authentic coastal culture, the drama of the ocean, wriggling, fresh fish and fascinating history – that is Karmøy today.
Walk in the footsteps of Harald Fairhair who consolidated Norway into one kingdom. The church of St Olav, Nordvegen History Centre and the Viking village invite you to delve into historical discoveries. Princes, kings and slaves will be your guides here. The church and the history centre are situated with majestic views towards Karmsundet Sound, previously known as Nordvegen – the way to the north –– hence the name Norway.
