About Kristiansand

Kristiansand is almost as far south as you can go in Norway. This is Norway's Sorlandet, or Southland. Kristiansand ferry port is situated at the mouth of River Otra on the Skagerrak Strait (an arm of North Sea) that divides Norway and Denmark.

Centrally located on the South coast of Norway, Kristiansand ferry port offers convenient domestic as well as international travel and transportation - by sea, rail and road. Because of short ferry crossings and frequent sailings to neighbouring countries, Kristiansand port is frequently referred to as Norway's "Gateway to Europe".

The alternative name of Kristiansand is Christianssand. Kristiansand is named after King Christian IV, who founded it in 17th century during the Renaissance. Kristiansand is also Norway's sunniest part. Its beautiful beaches and fascinating scenery attract lots of visitors from the rest of Norway and neighbouring countries. It is also a popular destination for fishing and hunting although strict rules have to be adhered to.

    Worrying time
    • I was told I could not travel on the same ship as our friends because I was to high I would be booked on the freight ferry Well they only just managed to get me on because I was just able to get on because the roof was to low our friends ferry was full of wagons with 4.5 meter trailers. We thought that we could be left on the dock but some shop staff came and we were backed on at the back and they could just get the doors closed a very worrying time.

    Very efficient crossing, but expensive compared with other routes.
