Located at the southwest tip of Norway, Rogaland is a region famous for its history and industry. Inhabited since prehistoric times, it is also the cradle of Norwegian statehood and the starting point of many Viking raids during the Middle Ages. Nowadays this busy area is the center of Norway's petroleum production and one of country's main agricultural and mining regions. However, the region's wealth of unique natural attractions, including scenic fjords, islands, and beaches, make it a perfect destination for hiking, cycling, fishing, cross-country skiing, and even surfing. Culture vultures will appreciate the abundance of museums celebrating local history and traditions, as well as the art festivals and performances that the region regularly hosts.
