The Norwegian town and port of Langesund is one of Norway's most popular destinations during the summer months. Dating back to 1765, the town has a long tradition as a port for lumber, shipbuilding and ice and is set in a beautiful location on a fjord that shares its name. Visitors taking a stroll through the town will see plenty of examples of well-preserved and restored buildings that date back to the 18th century. For visitors interested in the outdoors, the area surrounding the town is known for its interesting geology and flora.
Langesund's popularity as a summer destination stems from the large number of sunny days it has each year. Popular attractions in the town include the Wrightegaarden which hosts many outdoor concerts during the summer, usually at the weekend. Famous musicians that have performed at the Wrightegaarden include Bob Dylan, Elton John, A-Ha and Little Richard. Also popular in the town, and perhaps its most famous landmark, is the Langoytangen fyr, which is a lighthouse located on the peak of Langoya, a kilometer long island right outside Langesund.
The town's port offers ferry services throughout the year to Hirtshals in Denmark. The ferry port has 4 short stay parking spaces outside the terminal. Inside, there are vending machines providing snacks and refreshments.
Stavanger is perhaps the most international city on Norway despite only being the country's fourth largest city. The city is widely regarded as being the gateway to the Norwegian Fjords and is close to the Pulpit Rock, which is one of the most popular attractions in the region. The rock is so popular that it is estimated over 200,000 people hike to the rock each year, which is around 600 meters above sea level. Popular attractions in the city include the cathedral which dates back to 1150 AD and the old part of the city that has some lovely small, white, wooden houses. For visitors seeking a bit of culture the city has a good selection of bars, restaurants and cafes and is home to the Petroleum Museum. The colourful street called "Fargegaten" is a must see where old wooden houses have been painted in bright colours.
Located outside Stavanger, the town's port services ferries to Hirtshals in Denmark. Local ferries go to Tau and Kvitsøy, while fast passenger boats go to many villages and islands between the main routes from Stavanger to Haugesund and Sauda.
