Hirtshals Guide

The port town of Hirtshals is on the coast of Skagerrak on the island of Vendsyssel-Thy, at the top of the Jutland Peninsular in northern Denmark. Known for its fishing and ferry port, the town's economy is heavily reliant on the fishing industry and on tourism, with many houses available to rent during the summer months. The ferries that use the town's port bring the tourists into the town which benefit the local shops. Particularly large numbers of Norwegians visit Hirtshals to shop all year round. One of Europe's largest aquariums, The Nordsoen Oceanarium, is located in the town and has over 70 different species in its collection.

The harbour is full of activities and the ambience is authentic. When visiting Hirtshals enjoy the natural surroundings which are ideal for many outdoor activities.

From the port, ferries can be taken to Bergen, Kristiansand, Stavanger, Langesund, Larvik, Seydisfjordur and Torshavn.

Kristiansand Guide

The Norwegian town and port of Kristiansand is located on the Skagerrak and until the Kiel Canal opened between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, it was an important route militarily and geopolitically. This resulted in the town serving as a military stronghold for centuries which began as Harald Fairhair's royal residence, then as a Danish/Norwegian fortress and later as a garrison town. Kristiansand is the gateway for many Norwegians to and from the continent with frequent ferry services departing to Denmark. It is also the terminus of a railway line that operates along the southern edge of southern Norway.

The city takes its name from King Christian IV who founded the town in 1641. The 'sand' part of the name refers to the sandy headland upon which the city was built. Kristiansand is a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer, and popular sites include Kristiansand Zoo and Amusement Park which is located to the east of the town. Animals that can be seen in the zoo includes wolves, tigers, lions and lynx.

From the town's port, ferry services depart to Gothenburg (starting and ending in Newcastle, UK) and to Hirtshals in Denmark.
