DFDS ferry from Newcastle to Stavanger Haugesund and Bergen

UK Ferries from England to Stavanger and south west Norway


There is now NO direct international ferry service between Norway and the UK
. DFDS seaways withdrew the service from Newcastle in 2008 and there will not be one before 2014 at the earliest - see here for latest news (December 2013)
If you want to bring a car then you must either take the Stena Line ferry Harwich - Hook of Holland or the DFDS ferry from Harwich to Esbjerg in Denmark. In either case you then have to take another ferry from Denmark to Norway - there are several services run by Color Line and Fjord Line.

DFDS Seaways England - Denmark

DFDS Seaways operates the Harwich - Esbjerg route, with 3 return journeys per week. From Esbjerg it is around 3 hours drive to northern Denmark for the next ferry.

Stena line England - Holland

Stena line operates 2 brand new (Autumn 2009) ferries per day between Harwich and Hoek van Holland. It is then a long drive through Holland, Germany and Denmark to Hirtshals in northern Denmark for the next ferry. The ferry is much shorter and cheaper than the DFDS route, however.

Color line Denmark - Norway

There are several ferries between Denamrk and Norway, with fast new services between Hirtshals Denmark and Kristiansand (Superspeed 1) and between Hirtshals and Larvik (Superspeed 2).

Fjordline Denmark - Norway

Fjord line operates two new ferries between Hirtshals and Stavanger (Tananger) and Bergen.

Other international Ferries

There are several other ferry ports - including Egersund, Kristiansand and Oslo - with quite a few other ferry services. These are all covered on our main Arrival page on www.stavangertravel.com

Local ferries and fast boats

After arrival here, there are still many car ferries and fast boat services linking the communities of the west coast and the fjords
