The house with its small harbor was first established to process fish and lumpfish caviar. It was built at a sheltered place, close to various good fishing grounds. The house and harbor were used by local fishermen for decades. With the years Tungulending became an important place with a long history and natural charm.
More information about the history of fishing will be available at Tungulending.
The house is surrounded not only by the ocean and the steep cliffs of the North Atlantic coast line. Furthermore the interesting geological formations with the famous fossils of Tjörnes Peninsula layers are worth a visit.
