Transport of horses and horse-drawn vehicles must be booked by phone. Persons transporting horses should contact Fjord Line Freight to present papers on departure and arrival and be registered on the Cargo Manifest. A fee is payable. Fjord Line Freight must be contacted in advance if you require help to complete customs forms.
Live animals are transported at the owner’s risk. Please note that there are separate regulations for travelling with animals to other countries. Animals must have their own travel documents to and from EU and EEA countries. Please contact your vet for more information. Pets must be kept in the vehicle or in suitable cages that are brought by the owner (not allowed on MS Oslofjord) or in the pre-booked dog kennel (not available on HSC Fjord Cat). A maximum of three pets is allowed per booking. When booking your own trip, remember to mention that you are bringing a pet. If you book online, your pet must be registered under the «Travelers»-step of the booking process. The cost of a dog cage is 100 NOK one way.
MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensfjord
The dog kennel is on deck 10. There are three different cage sizes: Medium: 70 x 100 x 75 cm, Large: 100 x 100 x 75 cm and Extra large: 120 x 100 x 160 cm. There is also a walking area, a sandpit and access to water. Dog waste bags must be used. Dogs are not allowed on the sun deck or inside the ship (besides in specific cabins where dogs are allowed). The dog owner will receive a key to the dog kennel and can walk their dog without having to make an appointment with the crew. The dog kennel costs NOK 100. Pre-booking is highly recommended as spaces are limited. Please note that the owner bears full responsibility for the dog while on board ship. The crew do not supervise the dog kennel.
It costs NOK 50 to transport small animals in the car. Dog walking takes place on deck 10 beside the dog kennel. Please note that the car deck is closed during the main part of the crossing*
*Supervision and walking of the dog during the crossing can be done at specific times for visiting the car deck:
18.45-19.15 (Arrival Stavanger)
07.00 (Arrival Stavanger)
HSC Fjord Cat
Dogs can either be kept in the car during the crossing, or they can be brought up to the deck at the stern of the ship. If you are a foot passenger, you must bring your dog up to the deck at the stern of the ship. There are no cages on the deck so you must look after your dog for the entire crossing.
Dogs may travel with you at no extra charge. We recommend leaving the dog in the car, or the on-board dog kennel can be used. There are four cages on the outside deck. The cages are in a locked room and cost NOK 50 to rent. Keys to the cages can be obtained from reception on board. A deposit of NOK 100 also applies, but this will be refunded when you return the key. Dogs are only allowed in your car or in the dog kennel.
