Stavanger Airport: Cheap Flights, Tickets and Travel Deals

Stavanger, one of Norway's largest cities, may be known for being the centre of the country's large oil industry, but it is, in fact, a charming and well-preserved historical city with plenty for tourists to see and do. With a beautiful waterfront and proximity to some of Norway's most beloved natural wonders (including, of course, fjords), Stavanger is well worth a visit.

The main airport serving Stavanger is simply called the Stavanger Airport, which is located in nearby Sula. Because of Stavanger's industrial importance, flights to and from the airport are frequent. However, the oil boom has also brought with it a steep rise in prices and the cost of living in Stavanger is high even by Norwegian standards, which goes for flights as well. As a result, you will want to book your flight well in advance. You can also find great deals on flights to Stavanger by signing up for Price Alerts from Skyscanner.

Shopping is a bit limited, but a duty-free store, bookshop, and convenience store are available. There are a few food options, including a cafe, sandwich shop, pizzeria, and bar.

What to see and do in Stavanger

Stavanger's Old Town, called Gamle Stavanger, is filled with winding streets and charming historic homes, most of which have been lovingly restored. Museums showcase Stavanger's industrial history, including the Stavanger Oil Museum and the Canning Museum, which is a surprisingly fascinating and fun museum focused on Stavanger's days as the canning capital of Norway. The nearby fjords are one of Stavanger's (and Norway's) greatest attractions, with ferries, buses, and cruises available to them. The main attraction is the Pulpit's Rock, providing astonishing views of Lysefjord. When looking for a hotel in Stavanger, be sure to book well in advance as rooms can fill up quickly.
