Discover the stunning sights, beautiful scenery and fearsome Viking heritage of the enchanting city of Stavanger.

Drive out to the Ullandhaug viewpoint for magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding area and the island-dotted fjord in the distance. Stop nearby to photograph the striking monument to the 872 battle of Hafrsfjord, where three 33-foot-tall bronze swords plunge into rocks on the coastline.

Lose yourself in the sound and visual effects that bring the brutal past to life at the Viking Voyagers exhibition in the Museum of Archaeology. View fascinating artefacts such as keen-edged swords, golden buckles and brightly coloured glass beads.

Travelling back to Stavanger, stop at Gamle Stavanger (the old town) and follow your guide on a stroll through the picturesque cobbled lanes. Admire the lovingly preserved wooden houses painted in vibrant colours as you hear stories of ancient times.
