An island 30 mins boat ride from Stavanger harbour contains a large, and growing, tropical garden. Was a great morning out and well worth the effort and cost of going there. We went on a tour arranged by the cruise ship we were on, and had a great time walking around the place. There was a guided tour, but we just wandered around and marvelled at the trees and flowers.
Well recommended!

Pretty wild to see palm trees in Norway! It's hard to describe, a must see. All the flowers, trees and the great food at the restaurant. Best soup ever! If you have the time, and the sun is shining. It's paradise!

Make sure you plan a visit to Flor & Fjære if you happen to be in Stavanger. It is the work of a passionate family, they created an oasis of tropical flowers (including wine-producing vines!) on a small island just off the harbour.
The tour of the place (included) is amazing, with plants and decorations and walkways treated like the finest indoors furniture. The food is excellent and the service is friendly.

Very hard to find out about but well worthy. Firstly a wonderful trip to the Island. Well laid out, superb walks through the grounds, excellant staff. Having the evening dinner in such a supreb building was a really nice experience. Wonderful. A memory that will last a very long time. The Sun coming out was a real bonus!

The work of changing this island into a garden of peace and flowers is quite remarkable. It deserves the credit for the effort. On the other hand the relentless Norwegian weather can really spoil the beauty. On a rainy day with a lot of wind one has to simply rush through it, and that's shame. There are lot of benches otherwise to relax and there is plenty of good food in the restaurant. All that was very enjoyable.
