Stavanger Cruise Port
STAVANGER - The shortcut to the Norwegian fjords
So close to the European continent and Great Britain! Stavanger is very conveniently located in the south-western corner of Norway. The Stavanger region is indeed the shortcut to the Norwegian fjords. Nothing is far away, and cruise ships dock in the very city center, near the oldest part of the town.
Just a short walk away is the lovely cathedral, and the charming city center with its cobbled pedestrian streets. The landscape in the region varies between fjords and steep mountains. The Lysefjord and the Pulpit Rock – just an hour’s boat trip away from the city.
The Stavanger region claims to be the cradle of the Vikings. Having been European Capital of Culture in 2008 has added extra cultural dimensions to “The Petroleum Capital of Norway”.
