Island flower power

Nature coming to life through the blossoming of flowers and plants is a welcoming experience after the crisp winter season. Let your senses go floral exploring.

Flor & Fjære is the northernmost tropical island in the world. Who would’ve thought that you can find palm trees in Norway? The gardens are a must-see attraction on a visit to the Stavanger region. Every spring and through the summer months, the thriving family business welcomes you to their private island to take part in the flower wonderland they have accomplished here. Guiding of gardens, transport and a meal are included in the ticket.

Chasing waterfalls

The mountain snow is melting, and spring is the time when the waterfalls are brimming with water. It’s almost like the waterfalls are dancing to their own tune – to the bouldering sound of cascading water in freefall down the mountainsides. Can you hear the music?

The Månafossen waterfall is the tallest in the county with 90 metres of freefall. Explore the waterfall on a hike, either with a nature guide or on your own. Your hike should not end at the viewing point though. Continue yet another small climb, for another half an hour and you’ll find yourselves at the ancient mountain farm of Mån. Up until 1915, people lived here at the starting point of the valley. Spend a day or two here, there are nice camping grounds on the grass fields down towards the river. You can also stay the night at Friluftsgarden Mån, just remember to book in advance.

Spring fever

Spring – It’s a feast for the senses! It’s brighter and longer days, sunnier days, an explosion of colours, the beginning of life, flowers in bloom, tastes and fragrances.
