    Another Cruise Ship arriving
    1 more image

    When cruising Norway, don't expect to have the Port to yourself [contained to your Ship]
    Norway is very popular, and there is usually more than one large Cruise Ship in Port.
    At Stavanger, we had just arrived, when a another Cruise ship came into Port. Lucky we were here first, and I was able to book the tour at the time I wanted!

    Changing money in Stavanger

    by adema29 Updated Apr 4, 2012

    I've changed years ago some money at the reception and at the post-office but I will never do this again.
    They have the worst exchange rates, plus a 50 NOK fee (7 euro= less than a beer) for all the transactions-at the post-office.

    Try to get money from the cash machine in the airport.
    It would probably be the best option.
    Be sure that your card can be used here and that you have the account "full" as everything is extremely expensive in Norway.

    Expired products

    Pay attention when you buy food in supermarkets! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw so many expired products on the shelves! From chocolate to ham and caviar...
    So, be sure the products are in their validity period !

    As long as you are sober and not trying to cut in line in the quew for the taxi, there shouldn´t be any risk of -well anything. Even during the beach volleyball championships, the police used regular patrols because there wasn´t use for extra personnell.

    The toll ring

    by Gard Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A new toll ring has been put up around Stavanger. You don't have to pay any toll to drive out of Stavanger but into the city. There has been a lot of fuzz about the toll plazas because the machines does not contain that much information, they don't give any change and so on. So remember that if you come to Stavanger during the week you will have to pay 5 or 10 kroner in toll (depending on the hour you arrive). You will pass through several toll stations so remember to also get a ticket that will get you through the next station free (this ticket lasts for 1 hour).
