Explore Norway's past and present during this picturesque sightseeing tour that highlights historic Stavanger, a charming harbor city founded in 1125 A.D. Although relatively quiet until 1900, Stavanger became known as the Oil Capital of Norway by the mid-1960's, and has since evolved into a prosperous modern city.

Leaving the pier, you will pass by the harbor area's quaint fish and farmer's market and residential sections, observing how the city has retained its centuries-old roots through the preservation and renovation of its infrastructure and distinct old architecture.

As you continue on, you will pass Hafrsfjord, the site of a historic sea battle fought 1,100 years ago during the Viking Age and then on along the coast of South West Norway, viewing part of the long sandy coastal stretches of Jaeren where the light, the sea and sky are a magnificent sight to behold. Your route brings you past agricultural land as you reach the old residential section of Stavanger. Back in the center of the city, you will drive by the little lake where the Cathedral is situated; the only one that has kept its original features. In front of the cathedral is the colorful market square and beyond that, the Petroleum Museum.

As you make your way back to the ship you will travel through the old residential area of the city where you will see Northern Europe's best-preserved wooden house settlement, which is filled with charming, late 17th and early 18th-century wooden houses tucked away in narrow lanes.

Please note: This tour is mostly panoramic and is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Flat, comfortable walking shoes and a sweater or jacket are suggested. The transportation is not air-conditioned
