Get away to a region of jaw-dropping natural beauty and explore the city of Stavanger with cheap flights from the UK. Flights to Stavanger leave UK airports on a regular basis, and with journey times of one hour 50 minutes, travellers can be in Norway in no time.
The primary airport in the Stavanger area is Stavanger Airport (also known as Sola). The airport is conveniently located for visits to the city, being 7 miles outside central Stavanger, and getting into town won't be hard. The best option is probably to take the Flybussen express service straight to central Stavanger, although the 42 bus is an alternative for those headed to the suburbs.
Flights from the UK to Stavanger are provided by a few different airlines. Norwegian flies from London Gatwick and Manchester, Loganair fly from Newcastle and Edinburgh, Scandinavian flies from London Heathrow and Aberdeen, Widerøe flies from Aberdeen and Wizz Air serves London Luton. So, plenty of departures should be available.
Flying will be the best option for almost all visitors to Stavanger, and there are a few good reasons for this. Firstly, journeys are short. Flights will take around one hour 50 minutes from all UK airports. That's much faster than taking ferries to Norway. Passengers will also find a wide range of choices when booking their flights, with departure points varying from Aberdeen to London. And because there's so much choice, low-cost fares should be available, making trips to Norway much more affordable.
One of the largest cities in southern Norway, Stavanger has a lot to offer, both inside the city and in the nearby region. The local Hurtigbåt transport system provides excellent coverage, so getting around won't be hard, and 7-day passes could be a good option for vacationers. As for sights, visitors won't lack for options. The Norwegian Petroleum Museum is a one-of-a-kind (and extremely interesting), while historical buildings like the Valbergtårnet watchtower and Stavanger Cathedral are always worth exploring. And for a real step back in time to the 1920s, a walk around Gamle Stavanger (the old town) is essential. But there's much to do outside Stavanger, too. Try to find time to take in the views from Preikestolen; it's an astoundingly beautiful vantage point, not far from the city.
