Norway's black-gold treasure chest

There’s way more to Stavanger than a hunt for black gold, although the oil capital of Norway is not as popular of a destination as Oslo and Bergen. The city still retains some of its sleepy, provincial charm, but it’s now modern and cosmopolitan, and chock-full of nostalgic attractions and worthwhile treasures. Gamle Stavanger, with its winding streets and wooden houses, is still the main tourist draw. The fjords and scenic nature, however, are second-to-none, and there’s enough entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

Ride Norway’s largest carousel Editors' Note

Western Norway’s largest amusement park, Kongeparken, is a short drive away from Stavanger (about 20 minutes). With more than 50 rides and adventures for the entire family, Kongeparken is Rogaland’s biggest tourist attraction. Don’t miss their special Christmas events in November & December.

Children love hanging out with Bamsekongen, the bear king of the park, as much as they enjoy other attractions. Norway’s largest carousel can be found on Kongeparken ground, as well as the popular Freia Chocolate Factory and Norway’s longest bobsled track, which is over 1000 meters long.
