Welcome to Sunnhordland

The Pearls of the Coast

Here in Sunnhordland you can ski on eternal snow, swim in the sea, fish a pollock in the fjord – everything in one day!

The tiny coastal communities are placed one after another, as pearls on a string between Bergen and Stavanger. It’s been said that people in Norway first settled in Sunnhordland ’s region. This was because the Christianization of Norway started right here, more precisely at Moster in Bømlo. Before that time, the Vikings ruled the west coast villages. There have been many battles along the coast, and you can hear and see more about that especially in Fitjar, Bømlo and in Etne. In Sveio, it is worth a visit to Ryvarden cultural lighthouse. A visit to Moster at Bømlo will gives you an insight into the history of Sunnhordland. Drive to Leirvik, and pay a visit to Brygga 11 and taste a delicious 3 course of fresh sea food. Find accomodation for the night.
