Haugesund is a pretty town on Norway's west coast. It attracts thousands of tourists for reasons as diverse as bird watching, the fjords, Viking history, and for Haugesund's reputation as a goldmine of natural wonders - particularly in the wider Rogaland region. Haugesund Town Hall is the major landmark, but it's the town's natural setting which people come to see, making car hire in Haugesund popular. The Karmoy Beaches in Akrehamn are a real hidden gem of Norway's west coast, and the lookout point known as Steinsfjellet is unmissable, especially as the sun begins to set over Haugesund. Both of these attractions are best accessed by hiring a car in Haugesund.
Get your bearings in Haugesund with the striking pink Town Hall, and wander around the town's pleasant local amenities, before choosing from the list of natural and historical attractions, bearing in mind that hiring a car in Haugesund is essential. In terms of the heritage, the Nordvegen History Centre, St Olav's Church, and the nearby town of Haraldshaugen are all popular with those seeking a bit of Nordic history, whereas the centrally located Arquebus War History Museum is a valuable insight into Scandinavian resistance in WWII. The Karmoy beaches are a short drive south, and further down the map, you'll find Stavanger; the natural scenery here is sublime and quite accessible to those who rent a car in Haugesund.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
