The Stavanger region is easily travelled by foot, bike, car, bus or boat. It is an excellent starting point for an eventful holiday, or as a business meeting point.
The Pulpit Rock is one of the most famous attractions in the southern part of Norway. Almost completely flat on top, the rock dives 604 meters straight down into the Lysefjord, and presents visitors with a breathtaking view of the fjord and surrounding mountains. Each year more than 200.000 people take the approx. 2 hour long hike to the top.
The old town in Stavanger has Northern Europe’s best preserved wooden houses from the 18th century, and comprises more than 170 buildings. It is the soul of Stavanger, and we recommend all visitors to take a stroll through the narrow and winding streets.
