Description

This tour includes all types of Norwegian landscape, from quiet lowland and sandy beaches to deep fjords and wild and majestetic mountains. The bus will take you along the North Sea Road crossing Jæren, with its unique nature and cultural landscape. One of the sandy beaches of Jæren has been awarded as the 6th best beach by the Sunday Times. Jæren is also known for its special light which has inspired many painters. 

There is a stop at the old churchyard at Varhaug dating back to medieval times. The church yard is close to the ocean and the open landscape surrounding it creates an interesting contrast. Next stop is Gloppedalsura, the biggest boulder field in Northern Europe. Byrkjedalstunet is one of the most visited attractions in the region, known for its traditional Norwegian food as well as its big souvenir shop. The bus will stop here to allow you time to buy traditional Norwegian handicrafts and Christmas decorations.

On the way back to Stavanger the trip goes along one of the fjords, Frafjord.

Extra: Coffe/tea and waffels, lunch or dinner at Byrkjedalstunet (must be pre-booked with GuideCompaniet).
Duration: 6 hours
