How To Get To Bergen From Stavanger

One of the most common combinations I have seen when people travel along the Norwegian fjords is that they want to visit both Stavanger and Bergen. Here is how to go from one place to the other:

Information valid for 2014

Important notice: There are no more speed boats or fast ferries from Stavanger to Bergen. There is no train between Stavanger and Bergen either.

By bus

Buy your tickets online on either of these companies and save up to 40% in some tickets. Remember to look for special prices like senior tickets, student tickets or youth fares. You can also buy the tickets on board the buses, but it will be more expensive, and there might not be seats left in some cases.

Kystbussen is one of the companies. You can find their time table which is valid until 12 August here. If you come after 13 August then look here.

Nettbuss is the other company, and you can find their timetable here.

It takes more or less 5,5 hours with either company.

By car

Drive following the highway E39 from Stavanger all the way to Bergen. You will take two ferries along the way. They drive constantly during the day so no need to make a reservation.

One of the ferries goes between Mortavika and Arsvågen, it costs NOK 158 for a car of up to 6 meters long including the driver plus NOK 39 per passenger. For other prices and for their timetable click here.

The other ferry goes between Sandvikvåg and Halhjem. It costs NOK 217 for a car of up to 6 meters long including the driver plus NOK 59 per passenger. For other prices and for their timetable click here.

It takes around 5 hours to drive.

By airplane

Many daily flights between Stavanger and Bergen. For cheaper fares bought in advance I recommend Norwegian, but it can also happen that Scandinavian Airlines has cheaper fares some days.

The flight takes around 35 minutes if it is a direct flight.
