Ferry on the Lysefjord

2024 overview of ferry services between Stavanger, Lysebotn, Songesand, Flørli and Lauvvik.

The ferry schedules above are for the two Kolumbus ferries (public service). Kolumbus offers a rapid passenger boat and a slow car ferry with large capacity. Tickets on the Kolumbus ferries are cheap.

2024: contrary to in previous years, there will be no commercial “tourist car ferry” operating on the Lysefjord.

Rødne offers a commercial passenger boat from Stavanger city centre to Flørli. Read more and book.

Tips and tricks ferry on the Lysefjord


  • Book ferries in advance. Capacity on board is limited and travelling the Lysefjord is popular. Our recommendation is to book your transfers at least a week in advance.
  • You can park your car safely and for free on all quays (except Stavanger). You can even bring your car to Flørli.
  • Do not take your camper-van or mobile home to Flørli. We offer car-free camping, so bring a tent in stead. You can also rent-a-tent from us!
  • Save money and book the cheap Kolumbus ferry. It does not operate on saturdays however.
  • Fill up your fuel tank and your food supplies. There is no gasoline station or food store in Lysebotn.
  • Take your time. Driving in Norway and particularly the windy road to Lysebotn takes longer than Google claims!
