    Thank you for your information!
    Unfortunately, I can not use the ferry, because I had to realize in the course of a 2-hour crossing from TALLINN to HELSINKI that both my wife and I are not seaworthy. After about 45 minutes at sea I would have had enough. o_O

    I'd seen that. It sails 2,5 hours ride from me. If I wanted to go to Scandinavia that would chop a big chunk of motorways off my trip.

    That's my thinking too, pain on the arse having to go through Germany and Denmark just to get to the ferry port in Northern Denmark. I'll definatly consider this as an option.

    From my house to Hirtshals is roughly 950 boring kilometres. depending on where you got the ferry to mainland Europe to that could add on several hundred more.

    From Hoek van Holland to Hirtshals is about 1050 kilometres, to Eemshaven is roughly 300. You'd knock off a good 700.

    That would save you a bit of fuel, and as an added bonus you disembark in Kristiansand well rested.

    Plus the cost of a couple of B&B's, and the petrol too. Been waiting for the Newcastle Bergen route to open up again. Doubt that will ever happen again.:sob::sob:

    That was a nice one - I did it years ago from Bergen to Newcastle having delivered a yacht to Flam in Sognefjorden. Great train ride from Flam to Bergen .
