Weather in Stavanger

Best time to visit

Stavanger is a year-round destination, but it’s in the summertime – from May to September – that the city really gets into its stride with open-air festivals and a general party feel. At best, the temperatures peak around 17°C (62°F) in the summer, with outdoor pursuits from walking to surfing popular. Due to its coastal location, winters are mild with temperatures dropping to around 4°C (40°F). However, the city is a gateway to nearby ski resorts.
