Stavanger - a new destination for Catalans?

As Scandinavian Airlines as well as Vueling offers direct flights from Stavanger this summer, it provides access to Catalans to another and very different Norwegian region. Stavanger and the south west part of Norway has a mild and humid climate and contrasts in scenery. This video shows a little what Stavanger and the surrounding area has to offer Catalans and other tourists.

Did you know that this region has the northern most "tropical island" in the world? The island of Sør Hidle outside Stavanger has a vegetation closer to what you would find in Catalonia than you would expect. A wide range of Mediterranean plants thrive outside all year around.
