Route:

ELLY AND DANNY DO STAVANGER

Length: 10 000 steps

Follow Elly and Danny's path through Stavanger. This sporty English couple in their thirties love hiking in the wild. Elly is very interested in all aspects of cooking and has even written her own cookbook. As a couple, Elly and Danny have made mini golf their "thing", and they try to play a round or two in each new place they visit.

Many attractions and sights in Stavanger are densely located, making it easy to see and do a lot in a short amount of time. Join an art walk and discover everything from massive murals to tiny works of art in doorways and on buses. Fargegaten (the street of colours) is like stepping into a photograph.

Relax with a long, pleasant walk along one of the white sandy beaches of Jæren outside the city centre, or take a tour in one of the city's museums and learn about Norway's most important industry — oil.

BEST OF STAVANGER

Length: 2.7 km

On a visit to Stavanger, there are some things you simply cannot miss! Start with a morning stroll from the iconic Stavanger concert hall, one of the city's true architectural gems. Next, stroll through Old Stavanger, past white picket fences and blooming gardens, before reaching the IDDIS Museum, which houses both the Norwegian Printing Museum and the Norwegian Canning Museum.

Stavanger harbour is just a stone’s throw away. Admire the many old harbour warehouses, many of which are now home to restaurants and pubs bustling with life and colour, making them a popular Instagram stop. Continue to No 18 kulturkafé where you can have lunch in what is likely the oldest house in Stavanger (over 300 years old!). Make your way to the shopping area and don’t miss quality Scandinavian shopping at Oleana, Fjällräven and Chili Chocolate.

Route:

A HALF DAY IN STAVANGER

Length: 2.2 km

If you're only in Stavanger for a short period of time, you can still catch the essence of the city with this route. We have just the plan for you. Start with lunch and an explosion of modern flavours at the popular plant-based restaurant Bellies in the eastern part of the city. The restaurant is located  in an up-and-coming area that has seen a rise in popularity and new establishments in recent years.

When your belly is full, head to the harbour area (on foot or electric city bike) and join a pre-booked RIB tour to see the sights (alright, so this won't count towards your 10,000 steps, but still, it's a great tour).

Route:

STAVANGER STREET ART TOUR

Length: 2.7 km

Stavanger is one of the world’s leading destinations for Street Art. NUART previously hosted annual street art festivals in Stavanger, and its legacy makes an impressive visual impact on visitors. The art ranges from situationism, graffiti, post-graffiti, muralism, comic culture, stencil art, and activism, among many other things. This is without a doubt the most exciting development in visual art for decades. 

Take a street art tour when in Stavanger! This downtown Stavanger route gives you fascinating insight into the artworks found in the centre of the city.
