A series of life-size staues of Antony Gormley which are spread across the city. There are 22 dotted around the place, some in very unusual locations.
Finding them gives you an interesting objective and takes you all over the city.
A map showing their location is here:
This is an interesting walk or cycle ride to do, especially in the evening, when the blue walkway lights are on. The blue promenade is a lovely way to bring together all the little harbours around the centre of the city.
From Badedammen all the way to Bjergsted, approximately three km. Here is a free (non-commericial) map: www.stavanger-guide.no/maps/maps_english/city.pdf
Of the more southerly fjords that I’ve visited, this in my opinion is the most beautiful. It’s certainly one of the deepest and the granite rocks that rise out of it are extremely pleasing in their variety of formation and colour. Even the journey by boat from Stavanger is spectacular, passing towering islands and water-side villages on the way. Two landmarks of the fjord are the pulpit rock – a huge slab that overhangs the fjord from way above and from where the view is legendary – and the Kjerag Mountain at the end of the fjord. With the gushing waterfalls and the dramatic Baltic light this is a trip to remember.
