How to spectate on your own
- Use the public fast ferry on Friday and back on Sunday. Unfortunately there are no departures on Saturdays.
- Use the regular tourist sightseeing ferry (520 NOK) departing from Lauvvik(50 min drive from Stavanger) to Flørli on Saturday morning and back on Saturday evening. Unfortunately the last ferry leaves before the prize cermony. The ferry is slow and will stop at several locations along the way, both there and back.
- You can travel with car to Preikestolen Mountain Lodge on Saturday morning and be there at 8 am. After the teams have passed, you can drive around to Songesand and see the teams passing there. Unfortunately, there is no matching ferry transport from Songesand to Flørli Race Base at this time of the day.
