The county of Rogaland is in Western Norway, bordering the counties of Aust-Agder, Hordaland, Telemark, and Vest-Agder, with a North Sea coast and the huge Boknafjorden fjord and inlets around the several islands that dot the coastline such as Karmøy as well as picturesque towns like Jørpeland. Rogaland’s capital is the city of Stavanger which along with Sandness forms the third largest urban area in the country. The region of Ryfylke is a favoured destination for its stunning landscapes and fjords, and Jæren is a surfing region with excellent beaches. Due to the long distances and the topography of the Rogaland, a car rental is the best choice for a holiday-maker in this county.
