The gateway to Fjord Norway - and More

Stavanger is the small city with big city restaurants, nightlife and facilities plus top attractions in and around the city. The Stavanger region has good travel links with England and the UK and is the natural place to start exploring Norway.
It is just an hour or so flight time from Newcastle and Aberdeen, and two hours from London. The Newcastle ferry used to take around 19 hours to Stavanger, but no longer runs - with car you now need to take two ferries to get here.
