Get to know Stavanger: Urban hiking
Here are some tips for lazy summer days, by bike, walking or renting an electric scooter.
Urban coastal trip
Follow the hiking trail along the Gandsfjord (take the train to f. eks. Hinna og follow the trail to Stavanger) . Stop at Vaulen for a bath. Continue, via Goddalen and Emmausbukta (Storhaug) for more bathing opportunities by the coast. Follow Pedersgata to Stavanger city centre, where you can finish your excursion at a café. Or try out a local made ice cream at SidisIS in Pedersgata.
Explore city neighbourhoods
At Eiganes you’ll find the landmark Hermetikken, which houses a number of creative businesses and the brewery Stavanger Mikrobryggeri. Have lunch at the lovely Eg & du and stop for a pint at Lervig brewery pub in Ledaal Park. At Storhaug you will find another local brewery, Yeast side, and the popular street food place, ForTou. Enjoy your food in the park, before a concert or exhibition at Tou Scene. Plan a picnic at one of the different beaches along the coast. Remember to stop by Stavanger Ysteri, a local city dairy farm, for a taste. They only use raw milk for cheese production and deliver their products to the city’s restaurants by bike. Våland is a nice og cosy neighborhood. At Våland you find different museums, and Stavangers best "Berlinerbolle" at Våland Dampbakeri (bakery). Enjoy the view from Vålandståret and play hide and seek in the beautiful Våland forest.
Stavanger Museum’s culture and natural history exhibitions are great fun for curious minds of all ages. The museum also manages several beautiful historic buildings in the area. The royal residence Ledaal (built 1799–1803) and the shipowner villa Breidablikk from the 19th century are both highly recommended.
