Go by Ferry this Fall! 4 amazing autumn trips

Autumn is the perfect time for a beautiful trip. Be outside and enjoy fantastic colours in the countryside, thanks to the warm autumn sun. The largest crowds in the cities decrease during the low season. The best time to go out!

Traveling by ferry in autumn: check the offers

Just relax on the ferry. The slight swell of the ship and the beautiful views will automatically put you in a holiday mood. Avoid the crowds at the airport and enjoy your space to breathe. You can bring your own car so carry as much luggage as you need.

Sounds good? Then it's time to plan your autumn trip by boat. There are often various autumn promotions and great offers from ferry companies at this time of year. We will give you some inspiration for the most beautiful destinations in the fall.
