DS Stavenes was built for the company Fylkesbaatane in Sogn og Fjordane in 1904 and had a schedule from then until 1972 when it was sold to England. In 1934 Stavenes was rebuilt in order to become the first car carrying vessel to travel the Sognefjord. Stavenes spent a lot of time travelling the tourist route Flåm- Gudvangen. In 1991 the boat was brought back to Norway in order to be restored. After many hard years, the boat has received a new lease of life and soon travellers will once again be able to travel on Stavenes, which will be the oldest and most beautiful of its kind to travel along the Norwegian coast.
