Home to 322,000 people, the Stavanger region is made up of 15 municipalities in southwestern Norway, making it the third largest region in the country. The UN HDI (Human Development Index) ranked Norway as the best country in the world to live in and since our region has been selected as the best region in Norway several times, can we say (tongue-in-cheek) that we are the best region in the world?!
With over 180 nationalities, people here enjoy the diversity that our metropolitan region offers. Life here is good, safe and efficient. Distances are short and even in the city, you can choose between central and urban living or a more rural lifestyle without compromising on commuting times.
With a close proximity to the sea, mountains, and ski resorts, nature, in and around the region, offers possibilities for outdoor activities all year round.
Stavanger Sola Airport offers 50 flights daily, making the region accessible from home and abroad. The most important European cities can be reached in 1-3 hours.
