Stavanger is the fouth largest city in
Norway (third if we include Sandnes
which is almost connected to
Stavanger). It is known as the Oil
capital of Norway where all the major
oil companies have their main offices.
The center of Stavanger is located on
a peninsula and on the both sides of
Vågen harbour. This is also where the
cruise ships dock, so the most
important sights are located in
walking distance from your ship.
At CruiseStavanger.com, we present
attractions and things to do in
Stavanger for cruise tourists.
Guests visiting by cruise ships,
normally only have a short day to
experience the city, so what shall they
do to get the most out of their short
time here. There is propably time to
hike to Prekestolen and Kjerag - bot
quite demanding, but rewarding hikes.
An easier alternative is a boattrip to
Lysefjorden to see both from below.
Our tips are mostly focused on
attractions within walking distance in
the center of Stavanger
