Visit a tropical island in Stavanger

Relax after your business meeting among tropical flowers and palm trees, with panoramic views of the fjord and mountains.


A tropical island with fjord views

On the island Sør-Hidle, not far from Stavanger, you will find a tropical garden with flowers and palm trees. Visits start with a pleasant, 20-minute boat trip with MS Rygerfjord from Skagenkaien in Stavanger.

Upon arrival guests are taken on a guided tour around the beautiful garden, the perfect place in which to seek inspiration and a few green-fingered tips. Afterwards you will enjoy a delicious meal, inspired by all corners of the world but prepared with local ingredients, in the garden restaurant Flor & Fjære. Surrounded by magnificent fjords and mountains, you will relax among colourful flowers, romantic footpaths and rustic interiors, all of which contribute to a special evening with a truly tropical feel.

Flor & Fjære

Flor & Fjære also offer conference facilities, so if you prefer, you can have both your meeting and your incentive on this wonderful island. They have a capacity for groups of up to 100 conference delegates and up to 300 guests for dinner.

The tropical island is open from May to September and it is necessary to book in advance. There are usually two daily tours, one from 12:00 to 04:40 pm and one from 05:00 pm to 09:50 pm.

Price example (2015): NOK 1,190 per person, however all visits can be tailor-made according to your needs and preferences.
