Perhaps you'd like to sit and watch the city's pulse at a café, stroll aimlessly through the streets, or have a picnic in the woods or wade along the seashore? Can you hear the sizzle of food in the pan? The region offers many opportunities for diversion and recreation.

Give yourself a well-deserved break and experience everything from art and urban highlights to beautiful rural settings away from the daily hustle and bustle of the city. The magical sound of the paddle hitting the water, birdsong at sunrise, the first cup of coffee of the day, or a refreshing morning swim. Do you hear the lovely sound of silence? Or is it just the sound of you diving into a state of inner peace? Sometimes it's good to just be. Step back!

The tranquillity of nature or secluded luxury

What is a holiday for you? Is it being with your nearest and dearest? Is it just you and your girlfriend on holiday? Perhaps you're looking for the tranquillity of nature? Or do you prefer secluded luxury with you and the team on a yacht cruise or bubbles with your loved one in your hotel room and a gourmet dinner for two? Sit back in soft concert hall chairs and enjoy classical music from the podium, or enjoy a film in the luxury cinema hall. If you prefer rural Norway with goats on your doorstep in Byrkjedal, you can have that too! Do it at your own pace - let the days flow together. Feel your body de-stress and recharge for busier days.

Why Edge of Norway, and where?

It's easy to think that the Stavanger region is summed up by Edge of Norway solely due to its geographical location and renowned natural attractions like Preikestolen, Kjerag, and, not least, Jæren, which in old Norwegian means 'edge.' There are several spectacular landscapes and natural phenomena that earn the region its title as the edge of Norway, even the edge of the world.

You'd have to travel to the moon to find a landscape and geology similar to what you find in the Magma UNESCO Global Geopark. And in the sea beyond this lunar landscape, there's the amphidromic point where tidal waves converge and neutralize each other.

The region is Norway's outer edge facing the North Sea. Traces of some of the country's earliest settlements have been discovered here. Norway was united into one kingdom here, and we've ventured out for a thousand years and the world has come to us. We're known for a strong entrepreneurial spirit, for seizing opportunities and leveraging the resources around us. There's no one here saying it can't be done. On the contrary, we celebrate those who take chances, those with an extra gear and great determination.

The atmosphere is refreshingly informal. We know that teamwork wins, and we take pride in what we achieve together. This has given us confidence, prosperity, but also significant setbacks and challenges. We're accustomed to managing change and risk. We push boundaries without being foolhardy or overconfident. It's only natural that people from around the world come here to challenge their comfort zones, test new ideas, and create value. Here, they find like-minded individuals.

People who appreciate freedom, quality, and enjoyment. It's a cliché that there's a short distance from work to the surfers' paradise, the kayak, the hills, the fjords, the mountains, and the cliffs, but it's true.

Edge of Norway encompasses Kvitsøy - Randaberg - Stavanger - Sandnes - Sola - Gjesdal - Klepp - Time - - Bjerkreim - Eigersund - Lund - Sokndal - Sirdal.

The Sound of Edge of Norway

Do you hear the sound of people excitedly saying "Mmm", "aha!" and "WOW"? That's the sound of Edge of Norway.
