New ferry from Eemshaven (Groningen) to Norway goes into operation in April
From April 2022 , travelers can take the ferry from Holland to Norway . The drive from Eemshaven in Groningen will take around 18 hours. In addition to tourism, the “modern cruise ferry”, which Tallink chartered for two years, is also intended for freight traffic, announced the new shipping company Holland Norway Lines .
From a business point of view, the connection is particularly interesting for Norway, according to the initiator. “For Norwegian holidaymakers, this offers new opportunities to get to the Netherlands easily and comfortably.” The new ferry to Norway is also in line to sustainable tourism. The destination from the Netherlands is Kristiansand in the south of Norway.
The first tickets are expected to go on sale this week. The first crossing will take place on April 7, 2022, to which there will be a ferry three times a week. There is currently only one crossing from Eemshaven to the German wadden island of Borkum. Earlier plans for a ferry to Scotland failed last year.
