      Motorcycle rental in Stavanger or nearby

      Stavanger Mar 10, 2015 at 7:22 AM

      Hello. Our family will be in Stavanger for 3 days this May and my husband who is an avid biker has heard of the famous Lysebotn -Sirdal pass with great roads. We have tried to google motorcycle tours or rentals for this route but have so far found none. Is there any biker here or anyone who can direct us to a rental company for this purpose? Would appreciate any info. Thanks.

    • Hiking for three days in late September, in Kjerag-Preikestolen area

      Rogaland Aug 27, 2014 at 12:23 PM

      Hello everyone,

      I'm planing to travel to the Lysefjord region in late September this year, and would like to visit the main two attractions (as I understand) of the region - Kjerag and Preikestolen. I hike a lot and like just to camp outside.
      Unfortunately I can not find enough information on line about the area for a "less civilized" tourism :)

      The questions that concern me most are:
      1. Is it allowed to camp in a non camping designated area in Norway? If so, are there recommended sites for camping? (preferably natural sites)

      2. Considering that I can not cover the distance between Preikestolen and Kjerag in three days by foot. What is the best way to get from one site to another?

      3. How cold and how wet is the weather in the area in the last week of September? (for spending two nights outdoors)

      Thanks in advance for the answers!

      Hej! My 13-year old daughter and I (53) will be at loose ends in Stavanger while my husband attends a conference. Any suggestions on how to keep a California girl interested and amused? (She is in that rebellious stage unhappy about being taken away from her friends back home) I realize Norge is quite expensive, but thought she might be awed by a trip to the arctic circle, or a fjord cruise etc. Tak.

      I arrive in Stavanger tomorrow night (friday 31st august) and we want to get from Stavanger to Lysebotn on saturday or sunday. we don't have a car so need ferries or buses or trains
      the only thing we've found so far is a bus that arrives in lauvvik 4 minutes before the ferry leaves so that's no good.
      is there another ferry we can get or a bus that runs at this time in the year?

    • 9 hours in Stavanger

      Stavanger Jul 15, 2012 at 12:43 AM

      Many people suggested it's very difficult to do Pulpit rock on a tight schedule (8:00-17:00) with a 10 year old, so we won't go :(
      We are interested in seeing as much scenery and fjords as possible and doing outdoor activities. Stavanger is our third cruise stop after visiting Flam and Bergen. What do you recommend doing in Stavanger? Are there impressive fjords to see or we should stroll in the city? Or hiking maybe?

      Thank you!
