The Grenaa-Varberg ferry is a shortcut from the eastern and central part of Jutland to Sweden across Kattegat to the city of Varberg, located 70 kilometres south of Gothenburg. Because of the quite long sailing distance, the crossing time is 4 hours and 15 minutes.
The Grenaa-Varberg route is operated by the passenger ferry Stena Nautica, which is a combined passenger and freight ferry. The facilities on board Stena Nautica include restaurants, cafe, cinema, shopping, lounges, a playroom for children and cabins used for night crossings.
Grenaa is located on the tip of the peninsula Djursland in Eastern Jutland, and the Grenaa-Varberg route is especially popular in the summertime among Swedish tourist from the Swedish provinces of Halland and Skåne that spend some days in Eastern Jutland and for instance visit Legoland in Billund.
Stena Nautica is sailing two double tours every day year round with departures from Grenaa at 14.25 and a night departure at 01.00 am. But in the high season from mid June to mid August, Stena Nautica departs from Grenaa at 13.15 and 23.50. The specific departure times is shown, when choosing a date in the online booking.
An alternative to the Grenaa-Varberg ferry could be the ferry route from Frederikshavn to Gothenburg, also operated by Stena Line.
