The Stavanger Region is the country’s third largest region, with 16 municipalities in South-West Norway.  We are a joint work, housing and service market, with over 360,000 inhabitants.

According to the UN Living Conditions survey, Norway is the best country in the world to live in.  And when the Stavanger Region has been voted as Norway’s best region several times, does that mean that we are the best region in the world?

The region is proud to offer a lifestyle that will make you want to stay.  Stavanger is home to Norway’s biggest food festive, Gladmat, and two of Norway’s five Michelin restaurants are based here.  The nature in and around the Stavanger Region facilitates a year-round active lifestyle.  It is just a short distance to the sea, the mountains, hunting areas and skiing opportunities.  World-famous hikes such as Prekestolen (Pulpit Rock) and Kjerag can also be tackled on day-trips from Stavanger.

The region is very international, with over 180 nationalities in Stavanger and international companies attracting people from all over the world.

With 50 daily domestic and international arrivals in to Stavanger Sola airport, the Stavanger Region is also easy to reach.  Many major European cities can be easily reached in 1-3 hours.
