Ferries to Stavanger and south west Norway

There is now only 1 international ferry service on the west coast of Norway and this calls at Tananger near Stavanger - FjordLine operates two new ferries in a daily service to Hirtshals Denmark.
There are other ferry services to Denmark and Sweden from other ports.

DFDS Seaways England - Denmark and Norway - Denmark

There is now NO ferry service between Norway and the UK - DFDS Seaways operated the Newcastle - Stavanger - Haugesund - Bergen route, but dropped it in August 2008. No service is planned to resume, meaning not before 2014 at the earliest (see December 2013 update, which includes more details on the alternatives).

To travel with your car from England to Norway, the choices are: DFDS from Harwich to Esbjerg in Denmark, then drive to Hirtshals in north Denmark for a second ferry to Norway; Stena line from Harwich to Hook of Holland, then long drive to Hirtshals and the second ferry.  DFDS is more expensive and less frequent; the drive from Hook of Holland is long and congested in places (e.g. Hamberg) - you choose.

Fjordline Denmark - Stavanger - Bergen

Fjordline operates 2 new ferries between Bergen, Stavanger (Risavika/Tananger) and Hirtshals Denmark

Other international Ferries

There are several other ferry ports - including Kristiansand and Oslo - with quite a few other ferry services. These are all covered on our main Arrival page on
