  • Dalsnuten

    Stavanger Off The Beaten Path

    If you'll have a nice, sunny day in Stavanger and you want to have an half day trip, Dalsnuten may be a good option. You have a lot of ways to go there, by car until Gramstad or by bus from Stavanger to Sandnes (no. 2 or 3) and from Sandnes no. 18 to Dale or Gramstad. From any of those places you'll find nice tracks to the top of the hill. Even if...

  • Beaches

    Stavanger Off The Beaten Path

    If you are looking for an idyllic and peaceful beach, then this is the right place! We adore walking there in every sunny day! The easiest way to get there is to take no 4A or 4B bus to Rosenli (this is the last stop on route) and then walk to the fjord.

  • Centre of Stavanger

    Stavanger Off The Beaten Path

    In fact this is a very beaten path, it is the sidewalk of the very busy Madlaveien, the main westbound road out from Stavanger. A lot of people use it daily, but fail to see it's beauty as they hurry along. It is particularly beautiful this time of the year with alle the flowers blooming. The path is not long, it starts at the underpass by the...

  • Flor og Fjære

    Stavanger Off The Beaten Path

    I was just at a place called Flor og Fjære near Stavanger. We took a boat from Stavanger to an island called Hidle. In this pretty harsh environment you come to the "garden of Eden" and hence the title a break from reality. Out on these small island you don't see much plants and stuff but here you will find all sorts of plants that you don't...

  • Allotment gardens

    Stavanger Off The Beaten Path

    Did you know that corn can be grown in Norway? The depicted corn was found in the Allotment garden Rosendal og Ramsvik which is situated in Storhaug east of downtown Stavanger, along the fjord (Gandsfjorden). You get there by taking bus no 4 to "Sandnesgaten". There are four allotment gardens in Stavanger; Rosendal og Ramsvik and Strømvik in...

  • Rosenli

    Stavanger Off The Beaten Path

    Rosenli is a beautiful recreational area close to the city. It would take you 20 - 25 minutes to get there by foot from downtown. Or you could go by bus no 4A or 4B to the end stop; a roundabout by the buildings on top of the hill. NB check that the bus is marked "Rosenli", or you would end up on the other side of the city ;-) From the roundabout...

  • The Rogaland Arboret

    Stavanger Off The Beaten Path

    In Sandnes there is Norway's largets Arboret - a huge area with collections of trees, bushes and flowers, all put together as a very attractive and interesting park with many kilometres of paths to walk along. It's beautiful in all season. I remember going there in December and then, after having inhaled all that healthy cold air smelling of dead...

  • Broken

    Stavanger Off The Beaten Path

    English artist Antony Gormley made iron castings of his body, placed them all about Stavanger. The work is an interactive set of sculptures that encourages viewers to reflect, think, and use their imagination to deal with the fact that it exists in this town. When one sees it, one is tempted to find out more about it, and contemplate not only the...
