Watch a video from Skudeneshavn. Skudeneshavn prospered from the catching of lobster and herring and from a large trading activity with the Baltic countries in particular.

By the end of the 19th century the herring fisheries failed, the local ship owners missed out on the transfer from sail to steam — and the little town fell into sleep. It still looks sleepy. And charming.

Being so authentic the town has served as location for several Norwegian films and TV series set in the 1800s.

After you have watched this video from Skudeneshavn, read about the visit. There are also many articles from the municipality of Karmøy, in Norwegian, on the sister website Sandalsand Norge.

Audio: “Sommar i Skudeneshavn”. Artist: Johannes Næss
