Stavanger is a city in southern Norway, known for its neighbouring features Lysefjord and Pulpit Rock - a place of natural beauty that seems easily reached according to tourism brochures. The reality is that Pulpit Rock is a fair distance along Lysefjord, emphasising why car hire in Stavanger is essential if you wish to see these features.
Stavanger is central to the energy industry due to its enviable oil reserves, as reflected in institutions like the Norwegian Petroleum Museum. The winding streets of Old Stavanger show a different side to the city, and the nearby monument Swords in Rock illustrates its deep historical roots. Again, the Swords are best accessed by hiring a car in Stavanger.
Stavanger is a place of inspirational beauty, whether it be the sweeping magnificence of Lysefjord, or the spine-tingling heights of Pulpit Rock. These sights are often best explored by hiring a car in Stavanger.
Back in the city there's the impressive Stavanger Cathedral, the quaint streets of Old Stavanger and first-class educational institutions such as the Norwegian Petroleum Museum. The Maritime Museum, Archaeological Museum and Art Museum add to an impressive itinerary of local museums. If you rent a car in Stavanger, a short excursion outside the confines of the city will take you to the Swords in Rock monument, which is particularly pleasing at sunset.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
