Fjord line ferries to Norway

Fjordline is a Norwegian company based in Bergen. There have continued to be big changes. The English route to Newcastle was dropped in 2006 (and DFDS took it over for a while). In 2009 the Bergen to Denmark route changed ports, and the express service to Kristiansand was suspended but should be back from April 2010.

Basic information

Fjordline has an interesting life, trying to make the most of the challenging times we live in.
It operates a traditional car ferry between Bergen, Stavanger and Denmark.
It also combined with Masterferries to operate their fast boat service between Kristiansand and Hirtshals.

Bergen - Stavanger - Hirtshals

The "Denmark line" is operated by M.S. Bergensfjord.
This is the only surviving ferry service on the west coast of Norway.
In 2009 they dropped the ports of Haugesund and Egersund and replaced them with the new terminal at Risavika, near Stavanger.

Kristiansand - Hirtshals

Fjordline took over the Masterferries fast boat service between Kristiansand and Denmark. In 2009 they were unable to use the Kristiansand port facilities but the service should be back to normal from April 2010

Bergen - Haugesund - Stavanger - Newcastle

The "England line" has been given up in 2006 with DFDS seaways operating the route until 2008. There is now no ferry between England (the UK) and Norway.
