on our way into Stavanger we stopped by a few of the lighthouses south of Stavanger. These are very nice settings, worthwhile the detour.

A wonderful place to visit. Especially during sunset. It gave me almost the same feeling as driving through Val DÓrcia in Italy. Farms, cows and sheep everywhere. Driving the North Sea Road from Flekkefjord to Jæren (and Stavanger) is such a lovely experience.

We were at Jæren on a surfe course and it was absolutely amazing. The beaches here are beautiful with nice pure sand dunes in the back. Good place to bring the kids, walk on the beach or learn how to surf.

This is one of the most wonderful areas in Norway, with a rough, windy coast, and a beautiful cultivated agricultural land that produces a lot of food, with large fields separated by big rocky fences. Enjoy seeing animals grazing while appreciating the hard work our...More
