How to get to/from Hirtshals

In connection with MS Norröna sailing to/from Hirtshals, there are of course many practical questions from our travelers. Below we have compiled a series of practical information.

Terminal in Hirtshals 

We use the Fjord Line Terminal, which is located at the address Containerkajen 4, 9850 Hirtshals, about 15-20 minutes by foot from Hirtshals town center. It is possible to buy coffee + tea, soft drinks and candy in the terminal, but not food. There is an elevator and an escalator in the terminal. Passengers will embark through a regular gangway. The boarding is usually one hour before departure.

 

Travelers with a vehicle

If you are coming to Hirtshals in your vehicle you can drive directly to Fjord Line's vehicle check in, which is clearly signed in the port area (at the end of Sigurd Espersens Vej). There are toilets as well as vending machines with coffee/tea, soft drinks and candy available in the vehicle check in area. All passengers, with the exception of the driver, are advised to board via the gangway. Passengers can take the shuttle bus from the vehicle check in to the terminal. All passengers can stay in the car when driving ashore.

 

How do I drive to the ferry?

The port of Hirtshals gives our travelers the advantage of direct access to the freeway. Drive along E 39 to the last roundabout before the road to Hirtshals town (on your left hand you will see a row of flags and a gas station). Take the first exit to your right which is clearly marked SMYRIL LINE with a pictogram of a ferry and follow the road which takes you directly to the ferry at Containerkajen 4, Hirtshals. When you get to the port area, it is easy to find Norröna.

Bus from Hirtshals train station to the ferry port

In connection with our arrivals to and departures from Hirtshals, there is a bus service running between the station and the Fjord Line terminal. Please note that this is not a Smyril Line bus. The bus ticket is DKK 30 and is payable directly to the driver.

 

Airports

The nearest airport is Aalborg Airport offering shuttle to Lindholm station, which has trains connecting to Hirtshals. There are many cheap domestic flights to/from CPH for our foot passengers, and there are many foreign flights to Southern Europe available for our passengers. For those traveling with a car, there is free parking in Aalborg Airport.
