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.
