Day 30: North Sea (Southeast Bound) – Hirtshals

Day 30: North Sea (Southeast Bound) – Hirtshals

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

After another good nights sleep and relaxation on the ferry, we packed our belonging and arrived at Hirtshlas Ferry Terminal around midday – on schedule.

Once again, the car stacking system was extremely tight, making it difficult for most folks to get into their cars.

After departing the ferry, we once again drove into Hirtshals town, to kill time before our evening Fjordline Ferry on to Stavanger, Norway.

Seafront Cafe

We took lunch at a local seafront café, where we managed to catch-up with our blog news publications.

Later in the afternoon, we visited the North Sea Oceanarium (Nordsøen Oceanarium) for a couple of hours, where we experienced the biggest aquarium in Northern Europe.

Impresive Fish Tanks

Some of the “fish tanks” were simply enormous, and quite fascinating to just sit and watch, as the many fish types inside made their way around the tanks.

We also had the pleasure to experience the feeding of the Seals, which was quite fun.

We then returned to the same ferry terminal we had left just a few hours before, to join the overnight Fjordline Ferry to Stavanger.

Once on board MS Stavangerfjord, we did the usual Duty Free Shopping, before eating dinner and relaxing to the cabin.

The sea conditions were very calm, with “flat sea” all the way.

This was our last night away on holiday, as tomorrow morning we return home to Norway.
