A good pair of boots is essential if you want to tackle some of the walks in the area.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Even if you don't burn easily, sun cream is important if you do a lot of walking in Norway, especially in the hills. The air is extremely clean and clear.
Ticks are quite common in the countryside and can transmit some nasty diseases so it's worth bringing a tick removal kit and some repellent. Alternatively, you can wait until you get to Norway and buy from a chemist's shop here.
Photo Equipment: If you have a digital camera, bring along a good supply of batteries as they are hellishly expensive in Norway!
Luggage and bags:
Be sure that you have anything you are expecting to use here.
If not, it will cost you to fill the gap...
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you plan to remain in Stavanger for longer time, put in your luggage your hiking shoes.
You can use them here and you will not regret.
Here the weather is changing unexpectedly so be ready for a rain even if the sun is up shining.
If you remain dry you will appreciate more the area?
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Let's be serious... being in Norway you don't need anything excepting money... a lot of money.
Photo Equipment: You don’t have to bring any camera with you, because I have already made photos to every place here :))
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you don’t prefer Mediterranean Sea and the global warming will still go on, it may be a good idea to have your swimming gear with you.
The temperature of water may reach 20 degrees Celsius if you will be here to catch that day when the summer starts... and ends too.
Miscellaneous: If you have special plans, ask me and I will try to help with an advice... at least.
Miscellaneous: All alcohol is outrageously expensive because of taxes. Have a few drinks in your room before hitting town.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Stavanger is know to have a bit unstable weather. So if you come here be sure to bring clothes for 'all' seasons. The most useful piece of clothing is the waterproof Gore-Tex jacket.
