What to do in
Stavanger is not just the birthplace of the Norwegian nation; it also plays a major role in its economy. Just off the coast here is where they tap into the vast oil reserves of the North Sea. But while the black gold has helped the region to thrive, it hasn’t spoiled it. Stavanger and its 130,000 inhabitants have conserved the identity of their city, the charm of its small wooden houses and cobblestone streets. Nature here is left wild and unforgettable - Lysebotn, one of the country's most beautiful fjords, is a perfect example.

The top 10 things to do in StavangerSee more See less
- Wander around the old city, through the tiny, narrow cobblestone streets, lit by the streetlights of old and lined with the white wooden houses that have existed here for over three centuries. There are 173 in all. A record in Norway!
- Visit Norway's oldest cathedral. It might seem modest when compared with the large Gothic cathedrals found elsewhere in Europe, but this Roman church wears its 900 years wonderfully. One can't help but be moved by the choir there.
- Unlock the secrets of black gold in the Norwegian Petroleum Museum, anchored in the heart of Stavanger’s port. Many interactive exhibitions will give you insight into the working conditions on an off-shore platform.
- Take your kids to see the most famous cans in Stavanger...at the Canning Museum of course! The sardine trade has long been the city’s main activity. The establishment is housed in an old factory that opened in the mid-19th century.
- Hoist anchor and take a cruise on the Lysefjord. It weaves its way over 40 or so kilometres through sheer cliffs that rise up to 900 metres high. A true wonder of nature.
- Hike to the top of Preikestolen (4 hours round-trip, and fully accessible). At the top you’ll find a flat rock (thus the name “Pulpit Rock”) that juts out over Lysefjord from 600 metres up. A breathtaking view!
- Get your photo taken on Kjerag, a small rock wedged between two sheer cliffs and suspended over a 984 metre abyss. Unforgettable! Take note: the hiking trail that leads to it is not accessible to everyone.
- See if you measure up at Sverd i fjell, a monument of three enormous swords on one of the banks of the Hafrsfjord, near Stavanger. At 10 metres high, they commemorate a naval battle that lead to the unification of the people of Norway. A great place for a selfie!
- Try the local cuisine. Get a taste of reindeer and caribou. Savour some king crab. Indulge in freshly picked blueberries and wild strawberries. Try out brunøst, a lightly caramelised goat cheese. It’s a favourite of Norwegians, and a must at breakfast.
- Adopt the koselig way of life - it’s Norway's version of Denmark’s famous hygge. A lifestyle that combines cosiness and comfort with wellness and conviviality. Master it in Norway and bring it back with you to France for a mild and peaceful winter.
