  • See Old Stavanger’s sights up close on a leisurely walking tour 

  • Visit the city’s main attractions, including Valberg Tower and Fargegaten   

  • Admire Northern Europe’s best-preserved collection of wooden houses 

Discover the best of Stavanger with a walking tour of its old town in the company of a local guide. Located on the west side of the harbour, the area is made up of 173 wooden buildings from the turn of the 18th century – the best-preserved collection in Northern Europe. As we stroll among the cobbled streets, our guide will tell us more about Stavanger’s industrial history.  

Moving towards the market square, we’ll pause to admire the 27-metre-high Valberg Tower, a late 19th-century construction that served as permanent lodging for the watchmen of Stavanger. Next, we’ll explore Fargegaten (colourful street), a pedestrianised stretch of pastel-hued shops, restaurants, and local businesses that make up one of Stavanger’s most photographed spots. 

We’ll finish with a stop at a local cafe to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, and a traditional Norwegian snack – hjertevafler (heart-shaped waffle).
