There are several alternatives from Oslo, and across regions once you have arrived. Otherwise, it is good to relate to the three counties of Rogaland, Vestland and Møre og Romsdal when planning.
Travel to Fjord Norway - and across regions
There are buses from Oslo to several places in Fjord Norway, with departures both morning, afternoon and evening. For example, the buses to Ålesund take about 10 hours, Bergen 9-10 hours and Stavanger 8.5-9 hours, depending on which departure you choose.
When you are in Fjord Norway, there are good bus connections across the regions. For example, you can take a bus from Stavanger in the south to Ålesund in the north, preferably with accommodation in Bergen along the way. Then you can also choose to take a boat on to Ålesund the next day if you want an alternative to the bus. There are also bus connections from smaller places across the regions. Flåm and Voss have many departures to the whole of Fjord Norway every day.
For journeys by public transport to and around Fjord Norway, you can use the travel planners from En Tur or NOR-WAY.
