Day 1: The adventure starts in the west
Start your journey at Eilert Smith Hotel, the small 12-room boutique hotel that makes a big impression. In between Stavanger’s old wooden houses lies the once functionalistic warehouse, which has been given new life as a modernistic boutique hotel. Named after the local architect who created the original functionalistic building, it today houses Norway’s only two-starred Michelin Restaurant, RE-NAA.
Stavanger is a gateway to culinary adventure, and on Eilert Smith’s doorstep, there is almost everything that Stavanger has to offer in terms of culture, shopping, restaurants, and city life. Spend days exploring the region by foot, the adventurous hikes, learn about Viking history, delve into the rich culture, and experience the sublime nature surrounding the city, from beaches, mountains, and fjords.
