[b]Update[/b] UK-Norway Ferry
As you know the Fjord Line ferry link between UK and Norway ceased to operate in September 2008. An alternative have been to use DFDS Tor Line freighters from Immingham to Kristiansand/Brevik, but the departures have been difficult to access.
As of this year, there have been some changes in the DFDS Tor Line sailing schedule, which may open to some more options. The best part is that they have opened for daily sailings (six a week) Immingham - Gothenburg (being only a 3 hrs ride from the Norwegian border and a harbour frequently used even by Norweigan riders going to Germany). There is now only a once weekly sailing directly to Norway, and then only to Brevik - not Kristiansand (there is also one going to Brevik via Gothenburg but takes 48 hrs, thus not a serious option I think)
DIRECTLY TO NORWAY (BREVIK)
Dept Immingham Sundays at 04.00 A.M., arriving in Brevik Mondays at 06.00 A.M.
Dept Brevik Fridays at 02.00 A.M., arriving in Immingham Saturdays at 03.00 A.M.
DIRECTLY TO SWEDEN (GOTHENBURG)
(awaiting detailed time schedule, but six weekly sailings to and from Immingham)
(have changed - awaiting details)
I'll update this info as soon as I've got it, hopefully in a couple of days.
If we're lucky we might - just might - have got ourselves a good ferry link between UK and Northern Scandinavia again :-)
