By ferries and express boats

The county of Møre and Romsdal is full of contrasts, with deep fjords and steep mountains, making ferry travel a natural part of the journey. The ferries in the region serve the fjords from early morning to far into the night. It is not necessary to book ahead. To be sure to get a place for your car without having to wait for the next ferry, you should be at the ferry terminal some time prior to departure. This is especially important during the high season in summer, and during big events. Buy your ticket on board, directly from the ferry crew. Payment is by cash or credit card, and the prices vary depending on the length of the trip and the size of your car.

For more information, please contact Fjord1 or tide.no.
