Stavanger is Norway's fourth largest city and one that is steeped in history. Just outside the city are some amazing mountains for hiking and lakes and rivers to explore. A car hire in Stavanger is a must if you hope to get out of the city and explore!
Gamle Stavanger: Old Stavanger in English, this is one of the best preserved old towns in Norway. The small winding streets and wooden houses give visitors a glimpse back at what it must have been like when Stavanger was the canning capital of Norway.
Hiking in Stavanger: Get out of the city and explore! Most trails are marked with a "T" painted on rocks. For longer treks, there are log cabins to use in the mountains.
Solastranden: In summer there's no better place to be than the beach. Solastranden has some small waves, perfect if you want to learn to surf. Climb the sand dunes and discover the defences left from the 1940s occupation.
