Outdoor life.

Here in Stavanger, like in the rest of Norway, there is no reason to stay indoors. You will always find a lot of things to do. Mountains, sea coast, parks and gardens have a lot of secrets you have to discover in any season. Stavanger has quite unique location where you can see many different landscapes in short driving distance. You can play snow on the mountains and walk at the sand beach within less than one hour driving. Wherever you go, you will find untouched nature in its purest form.

Nature surprisingly generously rewarded this land with her gifts. High mountains and deep fjords, washed by clean and cold waters. A chain of dunes with snow-white clean sand, stretching along the coast for more than sixty kilometers. Plain landscapes with an abundance of coppices and lakes, which are difficult to imagine in this part of the country. Brooks in which a large and strong salmon splashes. A forest with ship pines supporting the sky with its peaks. Stony valleys between mountains with huge boulders covered with juicy, bright green moss. Cristal icy cold water, gurgling on the slopes of the mountains. Mountain rivers and waterfalls, polishing their streams rocky coast. Unique landscapes, waiting for their grateful spectators for every turn of the road. All this awakens the spirit of wandering that slumbereth in us.

View on Frafjord. Shoot was made from highest point of old road tt Frafjord. The old road over mountains was very narrow and winding. the road was closed after building of new Frafjord tunnel.

If you drive by old road from Gilja to Frafjord instead Frafjord tunnel, you will see this fantastic view. Just turn right in 50 meters before Frafjord tunnel, and immediately turn left and follow road to top. The road closed on almost highest point. There is a small place to park car. Then in fifty meters you will find this spectacular view. Frafjord has quite deep waters. Sometime you can catch even small polar shark here.

Frafjord has very steep mountain sides. On the northside of the fjord, the mountains stretch almost 700 metres up from the fjord. In this area you can explore Stordalsknuten with an altitude of 692 metres above sea level, Sveknuten at 764 metres above sea level and Dypingsknuten at 791 metres above sea level.
