Road system

The E39 and RV 44 are the main north-south roads: the E39 is faster and some distance inland, the RV44 stays closer to the coast and can be a more interesting drive. RV 45 (to Sinnes in Sirdal) and RV 42 (to Tonstad in Sirdal and beyond) are the main roads inland. A good network of smaller roads becomes more limited towards the eastern edge of the area, as the mountains make their mark on the scenery.

Car ferries

There are no ferry services in this region, apart from international services to Denmark, from Egersund.

Fast boats

There are no fast boat services in this region, although there are quite a few small harbours used by fishermen and pleasure craft.


The regular local railway service that runs from Stavanger to Egersund stops at many local stations through the Jaeren and make possible a lot of different walking or cycling trips that don't require a car.
South of Egersund the service is more limited.

Bus and coach services

Buses and longer-distance coach services link within and beyond the area.


The nearest airport is Stavanger airport at Sola.
Kristiansand (Kjevik) airport is about two or three hours drive to the south.
