Media Inquiries

Region Stavanger, Edge of Norway's, PR team is at your service. We are happy to showcase attractions and experiences in the region, further assist you with story ideas, connect you with storytellers, set up interviews, and give general information for press news and features about the cities and the region.

Media Support

International and domestic press are welcome to visit the region to explore and learn more about the area as a tourist destination. We collaborate with Fjord Norway and Visit Norway on several projects. We will in some cases be able to cover part of the ground handling for media coming to the region to produce stories. Due to a limited budget each year, we cannot support every press visit.
