InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Stavanger

Hello to all Americans in Stavanger! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Stavanger? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Stavanger which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: with the various international establishments in Stavanger (including branches of various oil and gas companies), you will be far from the only expat in the city. The Norwegian city with a small-town feel is a coastal city known for its notoriously costly housing market, but also for the mix of modern suburbs and historic center, its importance to Norway’s oil industry, and much more! With the local buses and ferries as well as good road connections, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the surrounding towns and villages, which are just a short drive away from Stavanger’s center.

Although Stavanger has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Stavanger, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
