Beautiful mountains and deep fjords make an unbeatable Norwegian combination. Travel with Fjord Line between Bergen and Stavanger! Book your ticket here.
The eco-friendly Fjord Line ships, MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord, travel daily from Bergen to Stavanger through exceptionally beautiful natural landscapes.
Sailing directly from the Port of Bergen in the city centre, Fløyen, Ulriken and the other city mountains along the fjord provide a bewitching backdrop as we make our way to beautiful Haugalandet, where the distance between the open sea to islets, archipelagos and deep fjords is minimal.
The ship sails in inshore waters for the entire voyage, so you’re never far from natural landscapes or landmarks. For example, when sailing from Bergen you can see Askøybroen (Askøy Bridge) and Sotrabrua (Sotra Bridge), two gigantic suspension bridges that connect the mainland to the two Hordaland islands. Both bridges are over one kilometre in length and create a dramatic sight from the deck at the bow of the ship or from the large panoramic windows on board.
And be prepared for Karmsund bru (Karmsund Bridge) too. This bridge, connecting Karmøy and Haugesund, illustrates what is so wonderful and unique about voyages in Western Norway. It’s not possible to get a closer mix of nature and man-made structure. Karmsund Bridge’s characteristic arch makes it popular with photographers, so have your camera ready!
On board, you can enjoy good food and recharge your batteries before arriving at the historic and dynamic city of Stavanger. Fjord Line has menus and restaurants to cater for all tastes. For those that like a little bit of everything, the Commander Buffet restaurant, which has daily breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, is a good option. As it’s a buffet, you can pick and mix to your heart’s content. If you’d prefer a romantic à la carte dinner, then the Grieg Brasserie is the place for you. Here, you can savour various tasty dishes composed of top-quality raw ingredients. Or for something quick and easy, why not try the Oasis Garden Café.
For a round trip from either Bergen or Stavanger, an interesting alternative is travelling back on Kystbussen (the coastal bus). With this option, we would recommend a minimum one-night stay in Bergen or Stavanger. The bus takes about five hours and can be booked online here.
After arriving in Stavanger, the ship continues on to Hirtshals in Denmark. Trips to Denmark, can be booked at fjordline.no
