Frederikshavn Ferry Port lies on the North Eastern coast of the Jutland Peninsula in Denmark. Frederikshavn has always been an important port historically due to its proximity to the Baltic Sea and has therefore developed into a modern ferry port with efficient infrastructure. There are many connections to Sweden and Norway, which can be booked through AFerry.
More than 3 million passengers pass through the Frederikshavn ferry port thanks to its excellent links to the rest of the European motorways and rail networks. Frederikshavn is a small fishing town dating back to the 1500s with some remnants of Stone Age habitation still remaining in places. Frederikshavn is famous for plaice fish.
Some of the tourist attractions in Frederikshavn are the Krudttårnet (a gun tower museum), Bangsbomuseet (an old estate and manor house with displays of navigation instruments and town history) and Ellingåskib, (reconstructed remains of a 12th century Viking ship).
However, on the other hand the rest of the town provides a complete contrast and has a modern appearance to it characterised with modern buildings, lively night clubs, concert halls, busy shopping streets and an international atmosphere with a variety of eateries in and around the town centre. Frederikshavn therefore has a lot to offer whichever way you would like to explore the city.
Norway is a beautiful country with breath-taking, diverse scenery of impressive mountain ranges, stunning fjords and cosmopolitan cities.
Visit Oslo to experience urban, modern living and visit the many museums and cultural attractions that Oslo offers, such as the Viking Ship museum.
Skiing and hiking are great ways to experience the countryside.
Norwegian laws, similar to the right to roam in Scotland, mean that you can camp pretty much anywhere, and it is worth taking advantage of these if you have an extended block of time in order to ensure that you get the full experience of the Norwegian wilderness.
Norway Travel Guide
Norway is a country which, bizarrely, is able to claim that it is the most Western, most Eastern and most Northern country in the Nordic peninsula. Strange as it may seem, this is actually a geographical fact (go and look on a map!).The land that once was home to Vikings now makes an interesting place to go and explore on holiday.
Travel in Norway
The bits of Norway most people want to see are the Fjords and the North. The North generally needs you to have access to your own car (definitely four wheeled drive and preferably with an ultrasound moose deterrent - though as far as I am aware, such a thing has not yet been invented). The Fjords - well you want to take a boat, really.
You can get around by train, and the scenery is often stunning. However, the journey will probably be expensive and slow. On the plus side, unlike many European countries, when you book a sleeper compartment in a Norwegian train, you get the entire compartment rather than just the bed. For British tourists who like their personal space to be at least 3 miles in diameter, this will come as a huge relief.

Take care when driving a car in Norway. Stopping distances will be greater if the weather conditions are adverse and roads are often, inexplicably, favourite grazing grounds for elk and reindeer. A collision at speed with one of these will probably be fatal, both for the deer and anyone in the car.
Car ferries are an integral part of the road network in Norway and they are also a great way to see the Fjords. In some areas, these services can be subject to weather related delays or cancellations, so always be prepared to take that little bit extra time.
