On your next trip to Norway’s fourth largest city make sure to consider our Stavanger car hire services for your personal transportation needs. The interesting thing about Stavanger is that the city itself is actually situated in adjacent counties not Stavanger county which makes for a very large surface area, much larger than it should be.

The city is served by the Sola Airport which is located at about a twenty minute drive from the city. There are special bus routes which make the connection between the airport and the city but your best choice by far would be to employ our Stavanger car rental services and have a car of your choice ready for you at the airport the moment you land so that you can start driving towards your destination pretty much immediately.

Once in the city there are quite a few attractions that you can visit such as the Stavanger Oil Museum and the Canning Museum.

The first one offers a detailed and interesting look at the country’s oil industry displaying items such as submersibles and drilling equipment while the second one, even though it might not seem to be an interesting sight to visit, it will surely surprise you thanks to the many hands-on exhibits it features.

Stavanger features an Old City area as well called Old Stavanger or Gamle Stavanger, this is a very well preserved piece of the city’s history with its winding streets and wooden houses it maintains something of the olden days when Stavanger was the canning capital of the country.

A quick two kilometer distance from the city’s center you’ll find the Rogaland Kuntsmuseum which means it’s an art museum. This museum houses a permanent Norwegian art exhibition as well as a rotating one which is a rather spectacular thing to see.

These are of course only a few of the things that you can see while in the city, not to mention all the hiking and climbing opportunities available all around or the long and sandy beach located close to the airport, all of these and many more can be easily accessed with the help of your Stavanger car hire services.
