Hirtshals Guide

Hirtshals Ferry Port

The renowned fishing town of Hirtshals is found upon a rural corner of the Jutland peninsula that shapes the pointed northern tip of Denmark. This hardworking community is centred around the local seaport, its wharfs and docks stretching into the bountiful waters of the Skagerrak. Views across the harbour and the flat, emerald swathe of surrounding countryside can be enjoyed from atop the Hirtshal Fyr, a tall lighthouse and landmark on the southern outskirts. The ferry terminal in Hirtshals is located at the very centre of the large seaport, on a landing platform between a host of piers dedicated to handling the cargo arriving across the North Sea. It’s a large, wood-panelled building of a modern, wedge-shaped design. Facilities here include ATM machines, a café selling hot drinks (but not food), a bank of payphones, toilets and a lift leading up to the undercover gangway that bridges the gap between the terminal and the docked ferries. A car-park with limited spaces can also be found out front. The main shopping centre of Hirtshals is only a 20-minute walk away from the harbour and a selection of shuttle buses outside the terminal whisk passengers to the nearby train station. The sole rail route travels the short distance south to the larger town of Hjørring, one of Denmark’s oldest boroughs. The E39 motorway skirting the edge of town is another of the major routes to and from the port; the road stretching away from the heart of the harbour to the sprawling riverside city of Aalborg under an hours’ drive south. A number of ferry lines operate from Hirtshals throughout the week. Services hosted by Fjord Line sail northwards to various locations across Norway, including the towns of Bergen, Stavanger, Langesund and Kristiansand, the latter also serviced by a Color Line service. Color Lines also make the short trip to the Norwegian port of Larvik, while longer-haul trips across the North Sea are offered by Smyril Lines who travel to Seydisfjordur in Iceland and Torshavn in the Faroe Islands.
