Stord is a municipality in Hordaland county, Norway. It is located in the traditional district of Sunnhordland. Stord is sometimes called “Norway in miniature” since it has such a variety of landscapes: coastline, fjords, forests, agricultural land, and mountain areas. The administrative centre of the municipality is the town of Leirvik, which is also the largest town in the municipality and the whole region of Sunnhordland.

The battle of Stord was fought on or by this island between the Norwegian king Hakon Haraldsson and the Danish king Harald “Bluetooth” Gormsson, supported by Hakon’s brother’s sons led by Harald “Greycloak” Eiriksson.
