So far, we are planning to arrive via bus at about 9PM from Bergen and will stay near Pulpit Rock in Jørpeland. I am currently trying to research the best way to get to Jørpeland. Car rentals seem to cost about $353USD/2 full days for us since we can only drive automatic. Once in Stavanger, I looked into taking the Stavanger-Tau ferry then bus but it is very confusing to me (what route, what the time table is, etc.) Plus we'll need a way to get to the hiking spots too (Pulpit Rock and Kjerag). So should we simply rent a car or would public transportation be doable? If it doesn't save a lot on time and/or money, I suppose a rental car would be the best option. There's a chance we may just fly to Stavanger instead as well (not sure if this would make a difference).
Any thought are appreciated. Thanks! :)
