This is a botanical garden on an island outside Stavanger. It can only be reached by boat.
When you by a "package" this includes boat transfer, a guided tour in the botanical garden - (this is worth the whole trip alone) and a buffet dinner.
The food is fantastic, And the show the Dutch chef holds before the meal is funny.
The whole package is well worth the money.
Will be back next season.

It's difficult to describe this garden without using hackneyed phrases like 'stunning', but it really is a most astonishing garden, with an inspiring back story. The effect is bold and tropical, set in the beautiful waters near Stavanger. The hosts of the garden are welcoming and knowledgeable. Allow a couple of hours at least to take in the garden (more if you plan to eat in the restaurant).

We didn't eat in the restaurant so I am unable to rate that but the gardens are definitely 5*. We visited while on a Saga cruise to southern Noway and Svalbard. This was an optional excursion from Stavanger and well worth every kroner. The gardens are beautiful - a lot of the plants are annuals so the garden is continually changing. It is amazing that such displays can be created and tended by a mere six gardeners. There is an excellent mix of flowers, trees and water and the whole garden is a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing experience. There is so much to see that the gardens seem much larger than they actually are.
The garden was created in 1965 by Asmund and Else Marie Bryn. It is now in the admirable care of their son Olav and his wife Siri. Our guide was Siri's father - a very friendly and informative gentleman he is too.
We would love to visit again and would recommend the gardens to any flower lover visiting the area. .
