Road system

The E39 runs north-south from Stavanger to Bergen and beyond just to the west, and the E134 runs east-west from Haugesund to Oslo just to the south. RV 7 runs east from Bergen along the northern shore of Hardanger before crossing over, across the northern edge of Hardangervidda to Geilo and heading on towards Oslo. RV 13 links the E134 to RV7, passing through Odda, along Sorfjord, across Hardangerfjord and to Voss and beyond. A new tunnel on FV 551 goes 10 kilometers right under the Folgefonn glacier, linking Odda to Hardangerfjord.

Car ferries

There are many car ferries in the area.  Most of them shut down through the night.

Fast boats

There is a good network of various types and size of fast boat throughout the area.  People commute to work on them and children take them to and from school.


There is no railway in this area - the Bergen-Oslo line is further north, the Stavanger - Kristiansand - Oslo line is further south.

Bus and coach services

Local bus services are timed to meet at least some of the ferries.  Longer-distance services link towns within the area, and beyond.


None in Hardanger itself, but Stord airport has small planes to Oslo, on the island of Stord, by the mouth of Hardanger.
Stavanger (Sola) and Haugesund (Karmoy) airports are to the south of this area, and Bergen (Flesland) airport is to the north-west.
