“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

A nice boattrip takes you to this little island, which looks like any other barren Norwegian island... but hides this wonderful garden inside. Very good for a day's outing.

“Lovely day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

This is certainly worth a day trip if you're visiting Stavanger. The gardens are really beautiful and very photogenic. We were fortunate enough to go on a sunny day and the boat trip was nice too. We had lunch as part of the package. It was OK for that type of "mass" catering - served buffet style with tables being called up in order. It's probably not our favourite way to eat but a reasonable standard for what it was. However, without doubt, the gardens are the drawcard.

“A very rare and different experience for Norway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is a very interesting experience for those living in the Scandinavian countries, and especially high up north. This is an island which has been transformed into a botanical garden and which actually houses a lot of very exotic plants. It is indeed exceptional for this part of the world.

It is probably the only outdoor place in Norway which has palms. The restaurant which is there is also very good. Highly recommended.

“Amazing garden, ok food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

First we had a nice boatride out in amazing weather. We then got a pleasant guide tour thru the whole garden, wich is truly stunning! We had our own separate location for a buffet. Food was ok, service likewise. The reason for visting this place is the garden wich i already said was amazing, and not so much for the food. I'd rathe go back with a big picnik basket and spend the whole day outside. A must-see when in Stavanger.
