Beautiful fjord trip

A visit to Flor&Fjære starts with a pleasant boat trip to the island of Sør-Hidle.

From Bekhuskaien in Stavanger, it takes 20 minutes to arrive to the sea of flowers at Flor&Fjære.

Departure times vary from day to day – check our booking calendar for available dates and departure times.


Incredible gardens

Upon arrival to the island, our guides are ready to show you the beauty of the gardens and share secrets, tips and stories.

The garden tour takes about 40 minutes. The tour is adapted to everyone, and the gardens are easily accessible, wandering through lush gardens on paths paved with cobblestones or gravel.

A tour provides insight into 3 generations’ passion to create the world’s most beautiful garden.

Local food

After the garden tour, a 3-course dinner is served, including an appetizer, main course and dessert with coffee/tea. Other drinks are additional, and we have a fully licensed bar and restaurant.

Chef André Mulder creates a delicious, fresh menu with inspiration from around the world, while focusing on self-produced and locally sourced ingredients.

As part of our sustainable business development, Flor&Fjære has established our own waterworks, and we will be serving our guests 100% clean water straight from the island. Read more about our sustainable measures here.

Please register food allergies, intolerances, and any dietary requirements while completing your online booking.

Explore paradise

After dining, you are free to explore the garden on your own the last hour of your visit, or just relax on a sun lounger or on a bench amongst the flowers.

Today, the gardens extend more than 12 acres (50000 m2), and consist of thematic sections inspired by many different parts of the world.

Frequently asked questions

Here we have collected questions and answers we often get from our guests.

When and where does the boat depart?

We have regular departures at 12:00 and 17:00 from Bekhuskaien in Stavanger. Extra departures are scheduled as necessary and for special events. View available departures on our online booking calendar. You will be registered by name as you embark on the boat. The boat trip to the island takes approximately 20 minutes.

Can we just visit the gardens?

Flor & Fjære is a total package experience. It is not possible to visit the gardens only. Our restaurant and garden tour would exist without the gardens – and vice versa. We want every one of our guests to experience the unique combination of boat trip, garden tour with one of the family owners, breathtaking gardens and honest, good food.

How long is the total trip?

It takes just short of 5 hours from departure to your return in Stavanger, including the garden tour and meal.

I have food allergies. What now?

View this year’s menu here. If you have a food allergy or diet restriction, please note this during booking.

Do you have a wheelchair we can borrow?  

We do not have available wheelchairs for our guests. You need to bring your own wheel chair. However, our property is very accessible for wheel chairs, strollers, etc. Our paths are all paved with cobblestones. The boat is also accessible for wheel chairs.

Can we arrive in our own boat?

You may arrive in your own boat, but advance booking and information about the boat is necessary.

Can we have a private function?

We offer private dining rooms for up to 300 guests. The minimum price is equivalent to 25 persons. Please view our special events page for information and enquiries.

May I bring my dog?

All 4-legged friends are welcome on a leash. However, they cannot enter the dining rooms with the exception of service dogs, and can relax, tethered outside in the garden during your meal.
