Go and experience Stavanger with exciting, authentic tours. GOSTA is a very local guide company formed in January of 2017 by Christian Øie, who quit his job to follow his dream of owning a tourism company. After hosting hundreds of Couchsurfers and showing them the region he loves so much, he decided to go “all-in” and start GOSTA, which caters to travelers interested in experiencing the Stavanger region from a local’s perspective. At GOSTA Boatlife we offer different boat trips, depending on the experience you want. Whether you want to see the different islands of the region, catch a fish, have a boat party or just cruise around, we try to make your experience whatever you wished for and more. Enjoy a relaxed and authentic boat trip on one of our two traditional wooden ships made in Norway. GOSTA also organizes fun tours on land such as the NuArt Street art walking tours. Check out our website for more inspiration for your trip. www.gosta.

We stayed at Stavanger a couple of days when we heard about GOSTA so we wanted to try out and it was a really good experience, the best way to discover the boatlife! And Chris is really open minded and friendly! I highly recommand.
