Probably the nicest beach in Norway. A must-see in Stavanger, even if the sun is not out, it's definitely a sight to watch, and one you will remember.

I stayed here for 2 nights recently and left happy. The hotel is close to Stavanger airport and yet very secluded on the beach. I had a room with a glass ceiling but with curtains to block the light if required. It was a beautiful...More

Located near the airport, the Sola Strand offers beautiful and views of sand dunes and dramatic skies and seascapes. If you stay at the historic Sola Strand hotel, the beach is right outside your door.

Solastranden or Sola strand is translated as Sola beach in English. It is a nice beach with light colored fine sand that stretches 2.3 km long. The beach is close to the airport and not far from the city if you drive a car. The...More

This beach is popular with surfers, and most of the time you can people watch these chasing the waves. If you want a beach experience on the west coast of Norway, this is probably the closest you will get. Take a stroll along the beach...More

Stayed one night. Seems the hotel has expanded many times over the years with different buildings clearly reflecting a different period and adding new facilities in addition to rooms (eg a building with conference rooms, another with the spa). As a result it is quite...More

Help with planning car camping/hiking trip with 6 year old! (5 Replies)
Hello there! We are planning an almost two week road trip through Norway car camping, and I'm starting to get overwhelmed in all the details. If anyone can help me sort out the following issues, I'd be so grateful! First of all, I can't seem to find a comprehensive guide/website, etc. for good hikes to do with children. Our daughter is a seasoned hiker and can handle a 5-6 mile hike a day, or several shorter hikes. I've been all over the DNT site and Norway tourist sites, but there are...More

If you have your own car (camper van or tent), I am sure you can always find something.

I guess the reason other hikes are not listed anywhere is that Norway is 96 % wilderness open to the public. In the areas mentioned there is no shortage of hiking options. In the lowland the forest is mostly so dense you have to follow a trail or a tractor road (ask locals), at...More
