“Nice trip”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The ferries run on time and seem to be well maintained. The staff was quick and friendly. Easy way to get from Helsignor to Helsinborg. Some of the ferries have quite nice restaurants on them.

“Best view of Kronborg Castle”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Apart from being a very effective ferry route between Denmark and Sweden, sailing towards Helsingør gives you best view imaginable of Kronborg, also know as Hamlet's castle in Elsinore.

“A very Enjoyable 3 Hours on the Aurora”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

I needed to take my wife on a special birthday meal & someone at work suggested the local ferry between Helsingborg & Helsingor. Now I have used this ferry service a lot but never realised there was a restaurant on some of the ferries so I thought I would try it - what could be better than a mini cruise with a good meal. So I duly reserved a table for two for the 18:15 departure, the lady also told me to just get the one way ticket since we were not getting off - so a small saving was made.

We found that the restaurant was very good with a very nice fish buffet for a fixed price and a good ala cart menu - we went for the ala cart since I am allergic to fish; the prices were normal for Sweden but not high.

We had very good service, we told our waiter we were ot in any hurry and that we did not have a need for a hurried service! So we cruised between Helsingborg & Helsingor watched the sunset and, had an excellent meal that did last 3 hours so I have to recommend this experience but suggest you book your table since it does get busy..

“Take a day trip or just a few hours in Helsingør, Denmark!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We didn't know about this option when we were fist visiting Helsingborg, but when we found out how short the trip was from Sweden to Denmark from the ferry port we decided to just go to Helsingør for dinner one night. Helsingør is a much "older" feeling city than Helsingborg, so it's worth going over just to take a look. The ferries run just about every 15 minutes plus the ferries aren't expensive. Buy the tickets as a duo/family on your jojo card if you're travelling with a partner at the train ticket machines in the main lobby if the train station and save a few bucks.
