We travelled by various ferries between the countries of Russia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark and without fail everything was excellent. BOoking with Direct Ferries was easy, painless and a very good 'one stop shop' to access timetables and prices. All information receieved was accurate and the quality and experience on all the boats surpassed expectations. Highly recommended.Read More Read Less

"Not much to complain about"
Quite an uneventful crossing. Ship is clean and its engine astonishingly quiet. Didn't get much sleep in the airtype seats, but as it was mainly the other travellers being noisy and me not being able to sleep sitting upright rather than any problem of the ship/crew itself. Scenery is absolutely beautiful, would recommend.Read More Read Less
Located on the west coast of Norway, the city of Bergen lies on the peninsular of Bergenhalvoyen and is often referred to as the City of The Seven Mountains. The city, which mainly lies on the shore of Byfjorden, is an internationally renowned centre for shipping, petroleum and for higher education.
The Norwegian Fjords which surround the city have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the world's most spectacular natural tourist attractions. The Fjords are characterised by high, snow topped, steep mountains which surround them and are themselves deep and narrow. There is evidence that the area has been inhabited for centuries and today the area has a number of farms which some are by the fjords and some higher in the mountains.
Bergen is Norway's busiest and largest port. There are regular ferry services departing from the port to Hirtshals in Denmark. Passenger catamarans also run from Bergen south to Haugesund and Stavanger and north to Sognefjord and Nordfjord. Bergen is also the southern terminus of Hurtigruten, the Coastal Express, which operates with daily services along the coast to Kirkenes.
Hirtshals is a town and port located at the top of the Jutland Peninsular in northern Denmark and lies on the coast of the island of Vendsyssel-Thy. The town was developed around a man made harbour that was built between 1919 and 1931 and was connected to the rest of Denmark by a railway line, the Hirtshals-Hjorring line, in 1925. The town's fishing fleet is now one of the largest in Denmark and was facilitated by an expansion of the harbour in 1966, and along with tourism fishing plays an important role in the town's economy.
The town's shops are kept busy by passengers disembarking from ferries docking at the town's harbour. This is especially the case with Norwegian visitors who shop in the town year round. One of the most popular attractions in the town is the Nordsoen Oceanarium which is one of Europe's largest aquariums and contains over 70 different species in its collection.
Ferry services departing from the town's port depart to Bergen, Kristiansand, Stavanger, Langesund, Larvik, Seydisfjordur and Torshavn.
