Whether you're travelling solo, with a partner or with the family, a Hirtshals to Larvik ferry can be a convenient and enjoyable option for getting to Larvik. Here are 3 reasons why we think Hirtshals to Larvik ferry is an ideal way to travel.

Take an unlimited amount of luggage
With the train, bus or plane, a free baggage allowance is often applied and any additional baggage generates an additional cost. On the Hirtshals Larvik ferry, you can take as much luggage as you want, within the capacity of your vehicle. If you are traveling without a car, then you will be restricted in your movements all the way to Larvik. However, we recommend that you ask the Color Line crew, as luggage lockers are often available for passengers to store their luggage during the crossing.
It's much less boring than on a plane
If we compare the speed, the plane is certainly the fastest way to go from Hirtshals to Larvik. But, it is not always pleasant to stay tied to your seat for long hours. On the other hand, during the Hirtshals Larvik crossing on the Color Line ferry, you have total freedom in your activities, to eat, walk, have fun or rest. A flight will never give you so many services during the trip.
