Haugesund ferry port

Not many cars get on or off at Haugesund, but it can be a good start or finish point for a car touring holiday, especially for Hardanger and to the mountains and skiing areas in the winter.

Basic information

The car ferry port in Haugesund is about 500 metres from the centre of town, on the island of Risøy - go over the bridge from the town centre to reach it.

Transport to / from:

It is about 1 km to the bus terminal, 500 metres to the fast boat terminal on Smedasundet (the harbour and waterway through the centre of town). It is a short drive to the E39 or E134 roads, with the Ryfylke to the south and Hardanger to the north.

Ferry lines and routes:

Fjord line dropped Haugesund from its Bergen to Hirtshals Denmark route in 2009 - using the new Risavika terminal near Stavanger instead.

DFDS Seaways dropped the service to Newcastle England in 2008. There is no longer any ferry between Norway and England.


Please be aware that ferry lines do change routes and schedules - sometimes at short notice - and we do not guarantee that this information is complete, accurate or up to date.
