Ferries - On schedules vs. continuously running?

I know many ferries in Norway run on a time schedule. Do some run continually back and forth? Is there a way to know what certain ferries do?

In particular I am trying to find out about these ferries:

Mortavika-Arsvågen/E39 ferry on the way from Stavanger

Halhjem-Sandvikvåg/E39 ferry on way to Bergen

Mannheller-Fodnes/Rv5 ferry on way to Sogndal

Eidsdal-Linge/Fv63 ferry on way to Trollstigen

Thanks!

For information on ferries just google "ferry" and the names of the endpoints.

E39 and road 5 ferries run more less continuous although there is Schedule (typically 2-3 departures per hour), so does Eidsdal-Linge in summer (the crossing is only 10 minutes but served by 2 or 3 ferries in summer).

Less frequent in the evenings.

Allow plenty time and enjoy the trip. Use ferry dock time as a break.

Thank you, OsloViking. My main concern was to identify ferries that run once per hour. Each of these listed above are on different days so I think we will be fine. I've planned a scenic drive over several days that follows portions of at least four scenic/tourist routes.

I am so excited to come back to Norway. My favorite thing about my first trip was driving and the scenery. I am a water and mountains girl so I was mesmerized! It surprised me and we did not plan where we were going...it just happened. This time we are taking some planned drives through some different places.

I appreciate what all of you do to answer our questions and help us in planning. I've learned a lot by reading through all the other threads and getting advice from all of you. Tusen Takk!
