History comes alive at the restored Viking farm at Avaldsnes, Karmøy, in the Prehistoric Village at Forsand and the Iron Age farm at Ullandhaug. The Petroleum Museum and Cannery Museum in Stavanger are well worth a visit, as are the excellent collections of the Rogaland County Museum of Art. The Cathedral in Stavanger and Utstein monastery on Mosterøy are still in fine shape.
Heading southward, be sure to choose the North Sea road, along the sandy and stony beaches of Jaeren, past the cabins tucked under the overhanging cliff of Helleren, to the southern town of Egersund, one of the largest fisheries ports in Norway.
A cruise or ferry ride into the Lysefjord brings you past the impressive Pulpit Rock and the towering Kjerag mountain ridge. From Lysebotn at the end of the fjord, a series of hairpin bends take you up into the mountains. Gloppedalsura, a huge scree of rocks and boulders freed by ice, is also an exotic sight.
Rogaland has a myriad of beautiful islands inviting you to a tranquil holiday. In the northern part of the county you find the charming town of Skudeneshavn, Haugesund, and picturesque villages such as Nedstrand in Ryfylke.
