 Flor & Fjære

A visit to Flor & Fjære starts off with a pleasant boat trip on the fjord, followed by a walking tour in the lush gardens, and rounds off with an abundant buffet that makes your mouth water. Our guests depart from Skagenkaien in Stavanger on board MS Rygerfjord. The scenic boat trip through the local fjord from Skagenkaien to our garden at Sør-Hidle takes 20 minutes.

Hidle or South Hidle is an island located in Strand municipality. On the island there is built a garden area, called the Flor & Fjære. The island called South Hidle to distinguish it from North Hidle located in Sjernarøyene little further north. South of South Hidle lies Horgefjorden while Hidlefjord is located on the north side.

Flor & Fjære is the perfect place when you want that something out of the ordinary. Flor & Fjære opens in May. 50 000 flowers will be newly planted and ready for your visit. So will the restaurant with a fresh, new menu. Are you hungry for new impressions? Unique is a big word, but there is actually no other place in the world like it!

Olav Bryn designs the gardens and park year after year. He spends the winter season thinking up and creating new combinations, finding new plants and flowers and looking for nuances not yet tested. The result is an explosion of colours, and when he is asked what his source of inspiration is, he answers quickly: "the rainbow". Partly joking, but with a solid core of truth. The whole experience takes 5 hours from the time you leave and return back to Skagenkaien. You can arrive on your own boat, but remember to make a reservation in advance.
