Weekends, city breaks and holidays

We are now putting together weekend and city break packages, with full holiday itineraries to come

Want to experience the scenery?

There are many ways to do that - active or relaxing - with boat trips, ferries, car tours, organised coach tours, walks and hikes to choose from, varying in duration from several hours to several days - with many stop-offs, to see salmon migrating upstream, or visit a candle, wool or pottery factory shop, for example.

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.
