in Stavanger and the town takes on a carnival atmosphere.
With canoeing, cycling, hiking, windsurfing, camping, sailing, swimming,
climbing, skiing (downhill and cross-country), skating, fishing and many
others to choose from - depending on the time of year, of course.

Seeking culture and history?
There are many museums, galleries and exhibitions all over the area, with
many towns to explore. You could also attend a concert by Stavanger's own
symphony orchestra. Keep your eyes open, there are sculptures everywhere
- big, small, serious or light-hearted.
This is a great place for children
and we help you find family outings that they will find more interesting.
Older visitors can also easily find trips that will interest
them - but choose what YOU want, not just what we think may suit you!
Finally, we understand that many visitors have
small children, prams, walking sticks, wheelchairs, or electric buggies
. We try to
indicate those trips that are suitable, but of course this depends partly
on your own energy and sense of adventure.
