Explore the Lysefjord and Pulpit Rock

Located in the south-western corner of Norway, Stavanger is the country’s 4th largest city with a fascinating industrial history and pleasant harbour front. Just up from the harbour, the quaint cobbled streets and little white wooden houses of the picturesque old town, dating back to the 18th century, still remain. Here you will also find the ‘Norwegian Canning Museum’ detailing Stavanger’s previous status of one of the most importance hubs of the canning industry. On the other side of the harbour, the narrow streets are lined with museums, shops and a good selection of restaurants and bars and lead to you to one of the most modern buildings in Stavanger – the impressive ‘Norwegian Petroleum Museum’. The other main excursion possibilities here are the ‘Fjord &Fjære’ gardens – a paradise for flower lovers – and cruises into the picturesque Lysefjord, home to the iconic ‘Preikestolen’ – the Pulpit Rock.
