Fjord Line is a Norwegian ferry company operating sailings from multiple ports in southern Norway to Denmark and Sweden.
Fjord Line began operations in 1993 with ferries running between Norway and Denmark before taking over the link between the UK and Norway from Color Line in the late 1990s. A difficult period followed, resulting in the closure of the UK link and changes of ownership, before a merger with Master Ferries in 2007 set them back on the path to success. Today, Fjord Line has approximately 600 employees on land and 430 working at sea, all year round.
Now with modern ships and ample capacity for both tourist and commercial vehicles, Fjord Line is able to offer regular daily departures across numerous routes and destinations. 2013 and 2014 saw the introduction of the company’s first 2 environmentally friendly cruise ferries MS Stavangerfjord and MS Bergensford, respectively. The first and largest ferries in the world to use single fuelled LNG engines, they are powered by liquefied natural gas, resulting in a 23% reduction in greenhouse gas and 100% reduction in sulphur emissions.

"Comfortable. A bit late"
Definitely recommend paying for the comfort seats and meal. Otherwise, you’re likely to be stuck next to rowdy (or seasick!) children in basic. Small ship that goes fast (32 knots) so feels rougher than larger, slower ships. Efficient loading and unloading cars. Was 15 minutes late arriving.Read More Read Less
"Info for dog owners ( especially Brits)"
Ferry was great, plenty of room, pricy coffee, but you know...right - dog owners; Before leaving UK I told my vet I was going to Norway, they said no issues with current vaccs etc. Off I go Hirtshals to Langesund. Back I come to Denmark when the border guys in Langesund pick up that the passport hasn't got an Echinicoccus ( tapeworm) stamp valid within last 7 days. Vet in Hirtshals (firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel 93 50 66) said this happens a lot. It's cost me over £300 in ferries, plus lost three days of the trip, so you need to get it done on the way up through to here. Dogs stay in cars on ship, but they organise access to the car deck halfway through the 4.5 hour journey. You can take dogs to the upper deck and helideck for the first,or last half of the journey, or all of it. Fine if the weather's good, not so if bad, as the dogs aren't allowed into the hip interior except to/from the car.Read More Read Less
