This excursion will take you from the Middle Ages when Viking Kings ruled both land and sea up to modern-life Stavanger; the oil capital of Norway. Stavanger and the surrounding areas hold many unique findings from the Viking era and earlier, and your first stop will be "The Three Swords." These Viking swords are 10m high granite sculptures, symbolizing the unification of Norway through the battle of Hafrsfjord won by King Harald the Fair-haired in 872. After a photo stop at the battle monument the tour continues through the old fishing village Tananger, also once a pirates' nest, and passes the Sola Beach.

You proceed through rich agricultural areas, to arrive at the Norwegian Petroleum Museum, officially opened in 1999. The first platform to drill for oil in the North Sea came to Stavanger in 1966 and caused quite a sensation. No one knew then that the petroleum industry would become Norway's most important industry and that Norway would become one of the world's leading oil-producing countries, or that Stavanger was destined to be Norway's oil capital. At the museum you may study geology and technology and experience the excitement and drama of the oil adventure. On your way back you drive along the harbor to Old Stavanger to get a glimpse of the more than 150 white wooden houses dating back to the 18th and 19th century. These houses preserved by law are forming a charming area, where a lot of local artists are living and working.
