How to get from Rosendal to Odda Saturday

Hey Guys!

I wanted to know if you could help me out.

I purchased a ferry from Bergen to Rosendal that departs June 30th Saturday at 6:35pm. I should arrive in Rosendal around 8:35pm

I realize that there isn't a bus that goes from Rosendal to Odda after checking the timetable at https://www.skyss.no/ :( :( :(

Does anyone know an alternate way to get to Odda from Rosendal during that time/day.

All buses the following morning from Rosendal to Odda don't start running until around 10:15am which is very late. We are on a budget as well and I was told that a taxi can cost around $200+ for a 50 minute car ride.

We need to wake up very early the following morning because we would like to do the Hike to Trolltunga.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I find buses at 10:10, 14:40, 16:08. 10:10 is not late, Rosendal is a nice place to walk around. BUT if you intend to hike Trolltunga in the morning, you need to get to Odda the day before.

Forget the boat to Rosendal.

Train from Bergen at 15.58 to Voss at 17.09, bus #990 from Voss to Odda, departure from Voss 17.45.

No need to go via Voss on the train - there are direct buses Bergen-Odda. Going via Rosendal is a nice variation and should be possible also on a Saturday.

Yes, as I mentioned we plan on doing the hike :( so 10:10am etc. is way too late for us. That’s why i mentioned we NEED to get to Odda the night of June 30th so that we can hike the following day.

I dismissed the direct bus (via Jondal) because it’s only one early departure on Saturdays, so unless you can make that, the option via Voss is the latest on Saturdays. An, you need to be in Odda the day before the hike.

Should not be a problem AT ALL to reach Odda during June 30th - whichever route you choose to do. There are buses Rosendal-Odda as mentioned in my post above. www.skyss.no Rosendal Båtkai - Odda Busstasjon.

Sure, but then OP needs to take the 11.00 departure from Bergen and not the 18.45.

Thanks so much for your help everyone!

I was able to call and cancel the ferry from Bergen to Rosendal. I was unaware there was bus/train service to Odda! This is perfect for us!

We arrive in Bergen at 2pm so the train to Voss then bus to Odda that was mentioned will work great for us! :) thanks again!

One more question. Should I purchase train tickets from Bergen -> Voss online or at the station? I just want to assure we have seats since this is the last train for the day. Or is it okay just to arrive 30 mins early to purchase tickets at the station?

You mean the 18.45 departure from Bergen? Yes I'm aware of that, but on Saturdays that will take them only to Rosendal and not to Odda = no Sunday hike to Trolltunga.

So if they want to do the Trolltunga hike the next day, forget about the Saturday 18.45 departure to Rosendal.

Then the next question is what are the alternatives? How early can OP leave Bergen? The #930 bus via Jondal leaves Bergen at 08.20, or if they want to go by boat, there is a departure from Bergen at 11.00. For later departures I recommend the train to Voss/bus to Odda.
