This trip puts Karmøy Island in the spotlight. It’s one of the largest islands in south-western Norway. You’ll make your first stop at The Fishermen’s Memorial, where a stone cross and a bell tower stand in memory of the Norse fishermen who died in American waters. From here, you’ll visit the island’s capital, Skudeneshaven. This place is a city by name but village by nature. Its waterfront is filled with masted fishing boats, and its narrow streets are lined with timbered houses with red roofs and window shutters. You’ll be given a guided tour, which will take you into the Mælandgården Museum. The exhibits here are housed inside a 19th-century merchant’s house. Once you’ve looked around, you’ll have some free time to explore under your own steam. There are a few cafes in Skudeneshaven where you can get a hot drink and a homemade waffle, or a plate of traditional potato dumplings.
