Our trip with the ferry was mainly practical, as we were heading to the stave church. However, the ferry trip in itself was a nice little experience, as you see the landscape on both sides of the fjord from a different perspective.

The Urnes Ferry connects Solvarn to Ornes across the fjord. It was part of our tour to the Urnes Stave Church. It is not a large ferry and can only handle a few cars or a car and a motor coach. We all had to...More

My boyfriend took this ferry at 1500 to go to Urnes Church. There was another ferry at 1600, but the last return ferry is at 1800, so time yourself accourdingly on Urnes side.

Short and prompt ferry with great views. Stave church on one side and nice little village with outdoor cafe on the other side.

I am writing a review although we did NOT take the ferry. Instead, we visited Urnes Stave church by driving down the road along Lustrafjorden. That paved road is mostly one lane and narrow. It is about 30 km long, and if you meet someone...More

If you are just going to see the Church. Leave your car and go on the ferry on foot. It's not that far to go to see the Stave church on the other side although it is up hill. Separate review on the church.
