Island Garden
Walk down the romantic footpaths among bamboo and palm trees at Flor & Fjære, a tropical garden nestled on a small Scandinavian island. Surrounded by fjords and mountains, the island lies on the same latitude as Alaska. Pine trees planted in the 1960s provide shelter from the strong winds and keep the temperatures warmer than average. Take a 20-minute boat trip to get to the island. On the guided tour you may pick up a few useful tips, such as how to get lemon trees to bear fruit and how to keep your lawn in good order. The restaurant offers panoramic views of the fjord and mountains and serves buffet-style food prepared with local ingredients. Make Flor & Fjære part of your personalized Stavanger itinerary using our Stavanger travel itinerary planner.

  • Lovely afternoon trip out to flowers eye. The boat trip takes about about 20 minutes. On the island we were greeted by a sea of flowers and a guide who knew all about the creation of the island as it appears. After that lovely 3 course buffet. Finally, it was time for a walk around in the sea of flowers. Highly recommended!!

  • I've been here a few times, and it's just as impressive every time. This is a place that one becomes very impressed over the each time a come here. It would have been great if one had the opportunity to spend a little more time in the Park on fine days when a first has raised.

Where to stay in Stavanger

As with any Norwegian city, the high price of accommodations in Stavanger might be a bit of a shock. Luckily, the Norwegians have such a fondness for outdoor activities that most tourist destinations seem to be well served by several campsites in nearby areas. Rent a tent or a rustic cabin to appreciate Norway’s nature and cut costs. Alternatively, look for hotels in the city center around the Storhaug borough. Slightly outside of Stavanger lies the popular Sola Beach, where high-end hotels put you just steps from the sand.
