The last ferry link between the UK and Scandinavia, the crossing between Harwich-Esbjerg was discontinued five years ago, in 2014.
Whereas there are no news in regards to a reopening of a new ferry link between England and Scandinavia, our Scottish neighbours seem much more interested and willing to consider the opportunity.
Falkirk East MSP Angus MacDonald told the Falkirk Herald in the new year that there’s no better time for ferry operators to reinstate a direct passenger ferry link between Scotland and Scandinavia. He also promised to continue to work with ferry operators and the Scottish Government to make this route a reality.
Furthermore, MacDonald added to the The Courier MacDonal that a route between Aberdeen, Rosyth or elsewhere in Scotland to Scandinavia would mean increased tourism and be a significant boom for the economy.
We have no doubt a ferry link between the UK and Scandinavia would be great for the economy, on both sides. As a reader of Little Scandinavian suggests, a route from Englands East coast to f.ex. Gothenburg in Sweden would possibly be the best solution as it would serve the most people.
Please note that the freight ferry between Immingham to Brevik with DFDS no longer accepts passengers, regardless of availability.
