Enjoy a half-day tour featuring Stavanger's main landmarks. Start with a brief city sightseeing experience before heading to the splendid Utstein Monastery via the Bytunnelen undersea tunnel. Founded in 1260, the monastery housed about 20 to 30 monks at its height, with about twice as many peasant workers. Don’t miss the walk through Old Stavanger, exploring the narrow, romantic lanes; historic open-air marketplace; and charming 18th-century whitewashed wooden homes.
• Utstein Monastery: Norway’s best-preserved medieval monastery is mentioned in historical records going back to the 9th century.
• Old Stavanger: Have your camera ready when you see the dollhouse-like 18th-century wooden houses with their carefully groomed flowerboxes.
