SHORE EXCURSION STAVANGER: itinerary

Our shore excursion begins in Gamle Stavanger, a picturesque and historic part of the city. Today, the white facades of the small wooden cottages are perfectly maintained and the cobbled streets a pleasure to wander through. However, before the 250 buildings were expertly restored back to their 18th century charm, this area was considered seedy and run-down.

We’ll then admire Norway’s oldest cathedral, Stavanger Cathedral, which was completed in 1150.

Then we head to the royal residence of Ledaal. Originally built as a summer residence for the family of local merchant Gabriel Scanche Kielland, the mansion is now used by the royal family when they visit Stavanger. The interiors have been restored to the original style of the 1850’s and now house a manor house museum.

Our Stavanger shore excursion then heads to the highest point in the city, Ullandhaug Tower. From here we can enjoy a great view of the region before heading to our final stop.

We’ll conclude our tour at the Norwegian Petroleum Museum. It’s unusual architecture has made this structure a landmark of Stavanger, seen from the sea this museum looks like an oil rig.
