Ferry Helsingor to Helsingborg (HH-Ferry)

Helsingor(Helsingør)-Helsingborg, or the HH Ferry, is a popular ferry service due to the short distance the ferry travels. The crossing can be found north of Copenhagen and travels a distance of only about 3 km. The crossing can be booked via ForSea (recently acquired by Molslinjen), but it is more convenient to do this through Scandlines in combination with the Puttgarden-Rodby crossing. This allows you to quickly and cheaply cross Sweden with 2 short ferry crossings.

An alternative for the crossing to Helsingborg is not a ferry but the Oresund Bridge. This long bridge runs between Denmark and Sweden and tickets are available in combination with the popular Scandlines crossings. The ticket for the bridge is valid for 7 days, so you can stay in Denmark for a while. Unfortunately, the bridge is also a lot more expensive. That is why many people choose the ferry. After all, a holiday in Scandinavia is already pricey enough!
