Leave behind the bustling city of Stavanger and head out on a journey through the stunning and tranquil countryside.

Follow the Dirdal River through the eponymous emerald-green valley until you reach the Byrkjedalstunet cheese factory, which dates back to 1920. Tuck into traditional ‘lapper’ (delicious, thick buttermilk pancakes) with jam and sour cream, then visit the colourful candle workshop and browse for local handicrafts in the gift shop. 

Your journey continues to Gloppedalsura, Norway’s largest boulder field – with some the size of houses. Admire the unspoilt sandy beaches of Sola on your way back to Stavanger before taking in the city’s most popular sights.
