The large island of Karmøy is a municipality of the county of Rogaland, part of the Traditional Region of Haugaland of which its government office is in the city of Haugesund. Karmøy is a relatively recent municipality, formed in 1965 with the merging of the cities of Kopervik and Skudeneshavn, as well as incorporating the towns of Stangaland, Torvastad, Åkra and the most part of Avaldsnes.
The municipality of Karmøy consists of the island itself, a peninsula of the mainland, several large islands and many small islands. The area is served by the E134 route and the number 47 main road, connecting the islands to the mainland via a series of bridges and tunnels, ensuring that meeting one of the Karmøy escorts is of no great feat!
Should you be venturing into the municipality to meet one of the lovely escorts in Karmøy, you might want to do a bit of showing off with your local knowledge of Karmøy. According to the Old Norse poem, Grímnismál, each morning the Norse god, Thor, would wade through the Karmsund Straits (that separate Karmøy and the town of Haugesund) on his way to the immense tree of life, known as the Yggdrasil.
Whilst on the subject of the Karmsund Strait, it is worth knowing that this narrow passage served as an alternate route for ships, given that the waters around the island of Karmøy are treacherous for sailing, as they are filled with underwater currents and rocks. The kings and chieftains of old would charge a levy for those that wished to pass through the straits.
In the northwest of Karmøy is the village of Visnes, once the site of a significant copper mine. What is interesting about this particular site is that the copped mined from this location was used as part of the construction of the Statue of Liberty in New York. Perhaps you may meet with an escort in Karmøy that has already visited this national landmark that might be interested in knowing this little bite-size trivia.
