The harbour town of Frederikshavn is located at the base of the Jutland peninsula that shapes the northern tip of Denmark. This quiet settlement, built upon the sweeping coast of the Kattegat strait, is surrounded by miles of flat grassland and fields laden with crops. It's an important seaport too. The numerous wharfs and marinas that protrude from the northern shores of town are busy all year with ships travelling along the corridor that connects the North and Baltic Seas.
The ferry port of Frederikshavn is found within the sheltered inlet of the coast formed by two, arcing breakwaters. The terminal is a modern building that sits at the end of a wide pier, its length covered by a long undercover footbridge that allows passengers to walk from the main road outside the port to the ferry check-in point without having to step foot on the busy grounds of the harbour.
There are plenty of amenities at the port, including toilets, a café selling hot food and drinks, an indoor waiting room and a tourist information point. The streamlined check-in service, including a departure area arranged into a neat series of lanes to help guide traffic, ensures that boarding the ferries is a smooth and straightforward experience.
Those driving to the port can make use of the E45 motorway that leads north from Aalborg, the largest city in the Jutland region, and loops directly into the port. The train station, just a short walk from the harbour, also serves as a gateway to a multitude of destinations across the country, including the sprawling capital city of Copenhagen over 5-hours south.
Two routes currently leave from the port at Frederikshavn. Stena Line ferries offer a daily trip to the Swedish capital of Gothenburg a short distance east across the width of the Kattegat strait, while another weekly service makes the longer voyage north to the Norwegian city of Oslo.
From the north, take the 40 south, following the signs to Frederikshavn. From the west, take the 35 east, following signs for Frederikshavn. From the south, take the E45 north, following signs for Frederikshavn. Once in Frederikshavn, follow signs for the port.
