"Boat life – it is pure bliss. For few people, there's nothing like a day on the water with friends and family, relaxing with the sun shining and cold beverages but for me boats have been a part of my life for last 32 years not only for leisure but for my daily travel. Yes, I grew up in an island. When I was a kid, I always dreamed about going to far-off places in that boat and with those dreams in my eyes, with my passion for boats and love for travel, is what gave birth to Gosta in 2017. At Gosta, our goal is to ensure an unforgettable experience for everyone who travels to the picturesque town of Stavanger. We specialize in handcrafted, custom and unique adventures in Stavanger, that aren't to be found anywhere. Our passion for travel is matched only by our commitment to those we serve.

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.

Christian is the most dedicated guide one can imagine. He is born in Stavanger, loves it and is determined that you should remember Norway as the best experience of your life.
