Travelling to Sweden by Ferry

The last ferry route going between the UK and Sweden closed in 2006. This was the DFDS Seaways route between Newcastle to Gothenburg (Göteborg).

However, you can still reach Sweden by ferry using either our Newcastle to Amsterdam or Hull to Rotterdam routes and continue to enjoy safe and relaxing ferry travel to mainland Europe.

The Hull to Rotterdam route features overnight crossings similar to our Hull to Zeebrugge service. Your ticket will include a comfortable cabin and the ships boast a range of dining and entertainment options, including two cinema screens and a casino. You’ll then disembark in Rotterdam which offers excellent road links to Germany and then onto Denmark before reaching Sweden.

From Amsterdam, you will follow a similar route as if arriving in Rotterdam. You will take a scenic drive through Holland, into Germany and onwards to Denmark before arriving in Sweden.

Why not have a look at our Holland, Germany or Denmark Destination Guides for inspiration on places to see and do while making your road trip.
