You have heaps of time to make it to the airport in time. Your cruise will most likely dock at the harbor in downtown Stavanger. Catch the airport bus from the Radisson BLU hotel by the lake. Ask locals for directions. It will be a short walk, 2-3 minutes, from your cruise ship to the bus stop outside the hotel.

Airport bus departures every half hours during weekdays (8:25, 8:55, 9:25 etc). The bus ride is 25 minutes. www.flybussen.no/stavanger/index.asp?lang=ENG

Spend a few hours to enjoy Stavanger. There are luggage lockers at the train station if needed.

If we are returning from the Pulpit Rock at 4:20pm, is it advicable to take a 6:15pm flight? Is taxi a fastest solution to the airport? (but we still need to get our luggages at the train station) can a taxi take 5 people, is there any larger taxi? Thank you.

Please consult the Passenger Guide for check-in times: avinor.no/en/…baggageandcheckin

My guess is that a maxi taxi would be in the same price range as it would be for 5 people to take the airport bus.

Personally I think you are cutting it very close to walk from the ferry dock to the train station (estimated to take approx 10 minutes) to pick up your luggage and then get on the bus and be at the airport in time. It is not only the check-in you need to allow time for. Sometimes the security check at Sola - Stavanger airport could take time.

My recommendation is to pre-book a maxi taxi to pick you up at the Tau ferry port to transport you to the airport via the train station. Contact Stavanger taxi: stavangertaxi.no/stavangertaxi/index.aspx…

Taxi will be your fastest option. Between 15:30 and 17:00 hrs are rush hours in Stavanger on week days. So factor in slow traffic in the city center.To be on the safe side I would be prepared for the taxi ride to take 30 minutes just in case at that time of the day if you are travelling on a week day.

To clarify: My recommendation is to pre-book a maxi taxi to pick you up at the PORT WHERE THE FERRY FROM TAU ARRIVES in Stavanger to transport you to the airport via the train station.
