Luxury holidays in Stavanger

When to go

Stavanger’s most clement weather starts in July, which happily coincides with its famed Gladmat Festival: a celebration of the town’s gourmet prowess.

Getting there

  • Planes

    There are direct flights to Stavanger Airport from the UK and other Continental cities; those arriving from further afield will stopover somewhere in Europe. Stavanger is an hour’s flight from Oslo.
  • Boats

    Fjord Line ferries drop anchor here from other parts of Norway (Bergen, Langesund) and Hirtshals in Denmark. There’s also a frequent ferry that chugs between Stavanger and Tau.
  • Automobiles

    Norwegians are outdoorsy sorts, and there are wonderful wilds to explore just beyond Stavanger; even the hardiest hikers will appreciate having some wheels at their disposal. They can be acquired at the airport; however, the city itself is easily navigated on foot if you’re not feeling that adventurous.
