Stavanger is the oil capital of Norway, but it’s not just industry you’ll see. There’s Gamle Stavanger, the charming 19th century suburb, the town centre with 18th century wooden houses, and the Cathedral, which is the oldest in the country. 


Jæren is the idyllic coastline in the southern part of Norway, roughly between Stavanger and Egersund. Compared to the rest of the country, Jæren has a very flat landscape made up of sandy beaches and farmland. It’s one of Norway’s best areas for surfing and agriculture!


Located in the middle of Southern Norway, Telemark is a region renowned for its high mountains, skiing, and ancient farms. Skiing was invented here, and its World War II resistance is famous worldwide. Telemark has always marched to the beat of its own drum, and up until industry came in the late 19th century, there were no major towns here; just scattered farms. Today Telemark is a popular tourist destination for adventure seekers or history buffs.
