If you fancy a dramatic crossing on a pedestrian-friendly bridge, this is the run for you! The Stavanger City Bridge (Stavanger bybru) connects Stavanger with Sølyst and Buøy, and features a wide, dedicated multi-use path. It’s quite high — not for those with vertigo. The bridge access is from the west side of Johannesparken. The crossing is ~1 km, and features some great water views. Retrace your steps, and then enjoy 1.2 km along the waterfront path, passing underneath the bridge, returning to Johannesparken.
Longer Run: This route is only 3.7 km, so you might want to combine it with our Stavanger Center/waterfront route. From Johannesparken, use Pedersgata headed west for ~1 km into the largely pedestrianized historic centre.
