Gladmat food festival is coming soon

Gladmat is the food festival that fills the main harbour in Stavanger each summer and - whisper it - has been blessed with very good weather. This year it is from Wednesday 25th to Saturday 28th July.

Did you know that there is a festival artist each year (with an exhibition at Galleri Sult) who designs a unique dinner plate (tallerken) in cooperation with Figgjo Pottery? These plates are used (and taken home) by the guests at the Gladmat Sinatra-style dinner (1250 kr.) You can also order one of the plates (500 kr.)


Many other events coming up over the summer

Including Beach Volleyball in Stavanger 26 June - 1 July;
Skudefestivalen in Skudeneshavn 28 June - 1 July - with the start of the North Sea Yacht Race to Banff at 12.00 on the Sunday;
the Chamber Music Festival (ICMF) in Stavanger 6 - 12 August;
Sildajazz in Haugesund 8 - 12 August;
and Mandal Skalldyrfestivalen (seafood festival) 9 - 12 August.

We have several new touring itineraries

How about a short break - or better still a full week round-trip from Stavanger island hopping through Ryfylke, up to Sauda, over to Hovden and back over the Suleskar road and the Lysefjord ferry. It takes 4 ferries and 3 roads that are only open during the summer, with lots of things to do and see along the way - with links to details on many pages of the site.

We have also put together an itinerary for the popular 1 day round-trip from Stavanger on the Lysefjord ferry, over the mountains from Lysebotn to Sirdal, then driving back through Hunnedalen and (optionally) to Gloppedal and Månafossen waterfall.
