Stavanger ferry port

The international ferry terminal moved in 2009 from central Stavanger to Risavika near Tananger - around 15 km away to the west. The cruise ship terminal is still in the centre of Stavanger. The local car ferries and fast boats depart from another terminal on the east side of the centre of Stavanger.
