There is no doubt that Hafrsfjord is a historic place. Most of the fjord is in Sola municipality.

According to Snorre, the Battle of Hafrsfjord took place in 872 AD, probably outside Ytraberget in Sola municipality. Harald Fairhair, Norway’s first king, is credited with unifying Norway into one kingdom as a result of winning this legendary battle. There is a trail from Sørnesvågen out to the headland at Ytraberget, where there is also a hill fort.
