    Stavanger Things to Do

    The walk to Preikestolen is a must! I’ve made this walk several times since coming to live in Stavanger and hope to do it at least one more time before I leave. The walk and climb to Priekestolen is enjoyable in itself - there are some impressive views on the way up looking back towards Stavanger. However the icing on the cake is the stunning...

    Haugesund Off The Beaten Path

    I knew that it should be a place like this around Kårsto and I found it at last :)It was of course another surprise, as the wildness is even more visible and the feeling of being so small in that “swampy” Norwegian World is even bigger.How I knew it? It's so simple.Around each "BY" (village or town) in Norway, the locals have organised a place for...

    Haugesund Things to Do

    It is a big history behind that church in Avaldsnes and this is why I have preferred to write a special "tip" for it only.First of all, you'll be impressed by the location on the top of the hill, dominating the entire area, and the simple, early gothic shape.It is somehow specific to the early gothic (even more specific to the one on Northern...

  • Driving from Stavanger

    Lysebotn Transportation

     I found more interesting the road to Lysebotn than the place itself. Be prepared for a long trip and a "scary" one. You'll have to stop in some places and let the others go, as the road is not wide enough for two cars. And of course, you'll stop it. It seems that the Norwegians are more confident with that kind of roads and they will never be...

Those coming towards us were only seen as a silhouette in front of the car lights behind them, when there were...

    Egersund Favorites

    If you are at least as lucky as me, you'll probably have a good day and a clear sky above you, perfect for taking photos in the port. It seems that the good sailors in Egersund are good painters too. Or an artist is choosing at least the coulours for their boats.In a shop near the port I have seen a nice saying "If God had meant us to have fibre...

    Tau has its fair share of Viking-age gravemounds. The biggest cncentration is around the church, a couple of miles from the ferry. Most of them are on farmland, and hnce unaccessible. But two are easily reached: One is in the new cemetery, right next to the church. The second is located right down the road from the church, towards the sea.The...

    Take a walk on Taurafjedlet ("Mount Tau"). The path starts in Vågadalsveien, and can be a bit hard to find. It's to the left when you get to the top of the hill from the ferry quay. Take a look at the picture to get an idea. The path starts at the "X".On the top, you've got a great view overlooking Tau, as well as the fjords to the West and North....

    Ask a local or read a book on where to walk. The countryside is criss-crossed with small roads next to pastures and fieldls. Sometimes the road goes straight through the farm (between the house and the barn). Locals like walking to Steinkjerringå (The woman of stone) -se the picture.

    by adema29 Updated Jul 21, 2010

    If you'll get the opportunity to have a sunny day on the western Norwegian Coast, which is not so often as we all know, don’t miss it and go to the beach.
    Brusand is one of the best beaches in Norway, and not only..
    If you still have doubts, take a look at the pictures bellow and… I am wainting for your comments.
    What is nice here is that the beach is still natural, no hotels, no restaurants, no taxes and it is still quiet… lovely.
    Take care anyway at the currents in the water, they can be dangerous.

    This is what I am always doing when I am in Norway. It is the only way I can understand where I am and ussually, if I am lucky enough, the view over the fjords and thousand islands is amazing.
    I will try to attach some photos to let you understand my point :)
    I have measured it and it seems that is only 307 m above the sea level if my GPS is working properly :)

    Favorite thing: It seems that this is one of the reasons why Nedstrand is so small and clean and quiet.
    You will end lost between the fjords before foinding at last the place.
    Once found, you'll discover that is not too much to do here than breath a fresh hair, discuss a bit with those people around and listen their stories about witches and fishing.
    Serious people.. is it not too boring to live in places like this?! :(
