Port of Kristiansand

Ferry Routes and Cruises
(Kristiansand, Vest Agder, Norway)

There are two main routes that operate out of the Port of Kristiansand: the Newcastle to Kristiansand to Göthenburg (Sweden) route (a round trip ending in Newcastle) and the Kristiansand to Hirsthals (Demark) route.

Newcastle - Kristiansand - Gothenburg

This service makes two round trips per week (Monday and Thursday), starting at Newcastle, docking in Kristiansand and then travelling to Göthenburg in Sweden.

The Newcastle to Kristiansand service is overnight and takes 17 hours, while the Kristiansand to Gothenburg part takes a further 6 hours or so. The Port of Tyne in Newcastle is located on the north bank of the River Tyne to the east of the city and is a modern, passenger-friendly facility with covered walkways and good facilities. The Port of Göthenburg is situated on Sweden's west coast very near the city centre and is a major ferry port, with a comfortable lounge, shop and café.

Kristiansand to Hirsthals

The Kristiansand to Hirsthals route is a busy and convenient crossing linking southern Norway with northern Denmark. Slow and fast ferries operate this popular route, where two fast ferries (2 hours, 30 minutes) and two conventional ferries (4 hours, 30 minutes) operate daily. The Port of Hirsthals is only a few minutes' walk from Hirsthals town centre and has excellent road and rail connections with the rest of Denmark. The port is a multi-level facility and comes with a cash machine, baggage storage, a café and car parking.
