DFDS Seaways Great Ferry Crossing Deals to Amsterdam & Denmark Our car ferry service to Denmark opens up Scandinavia to you and your car. Copenhagen and Southern Sweden are both within a 4 hour drive via the Oresund Bridge, and provides easy access into other parts of Scandinavia that are normally expensive to reach by plane.

With no weight restrictions, travelling by ferry with your car also allows you to pack as much luggage as you like, and reduces the hassle of hiring a car at the airport, and long check in queues. When you sail with DFDS Seaways you will experience a special maritime atmosphere, with professional staff and an international level of service.

Many view us as the very best travel option, in terms of the range of services we offer for both passenger and vehicle transport. For more than 139 years DFDS has been operating passenger ships between European cities, and it is now one of the biggest passenger shipping companies in Northern Europe.

We now operate five modern passenger ships with experienced crews, and measured in terms of overnight stays we are one of the biggest hotel chains in Scandinavia. With approx. 7,000 overnight stays per day during the summer season, we transport approx. 1.7 million passengers and approx. 200,000 vehicles on four routes between Denmark, Sweden, Holland, the UK and Norway.

Dear Philip. We're back in the US, and while we are happy to be home we are still wallowing in the pleasure of our six days on the Coast to Coast walk. Our thanks to you for everything, especially for getting us to the train on that last day and for sending Mal to meet us after our shattering day into Shap. We were pooped, as they say, and it lifted our spirits wonderfully to have his fine company at the end of that long day and the next morning when he shuttled us to Orton. Please give him our regards and our enthusiastic thanks. We feel privileged to have met both of you and to have been taken care of by such lovely hosts at the guesthouses and inns you arranged--especially Irene and David in St. Bee's and Nigel and Trish in Seatoller. It was a trip we will always remember, and our hope is that we'll have occasion before too long to be in touch again to arrange another visit to Britain. All best to you, and thank you again for everything.
