The energy capital of Europe, and the gateway to the fjords

The Stavanger region welcomes you to grand nature with steep mountains and deep fjords.

From outer reefs to sheltered villages. From steep vantage points to green valleys. Short distances to mountains and fjords. Wide-stretched beaches as far as the eye can see. Colourful culture and spectacular culinary highlights. Stavanger is the region’s largest city with a population of around 130,000.

Stavanger is – apart from being one of Norway’s cosiest cities – also the gateway to some of the most incredible scenic nature in Norway. A short journey out of the city will take you to the world-famous tourist brochure sights such as Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), Kjeragbolten and to the many stunning fjords in the area.

The opportunities for an active holiday are endless in the entire region. Just to mention some; canoeing, kayaking, fishing, salmon safari, surfing, kiting, climbing, ZIP line, rappelling, SUP, boating, skiing, cycling, hiking or extreme sports such as base jumping or paragliding. Norway’s best surfing conditions are actually found along the Jæren beaches in the Stavanger region.
