Set a Course for Adventure
Imagine this: after careful planning, endless hours of chugging along by train and absorbing the metropolitan bustle of your last city visit, you board a ship that takes you off into the sunset. On deck, you enjoy the peace and quiet of the Mediterranean, the Skagerrak or the Baltic Sea and breathe in the fresh sea air. Totally Zen and relaxed you reach your next destination, be it Norway or Estonia, Morocco or Tunisia.
With a Eurail pass you get sizeable discounts on many ferries in Europe, sometimes crossings are even free for pass holders.
Ferry crossings between Italy and Greece are offered by several companies. Superfast Ferries and Anek Superfast, as well as Minoan Lines will take you across the Mediterranean for free if your pass is valid in both Italy and Greece. Grimaldi Lines will even whisk you off to exotic places like Morocco and Tunisia at a 20% discount with departures from Italy and Spain. The beautiful islands of Sicily and Sardinia and even Malta are also on their routes. For more information, see our benefits per country.
The Skagerrak and Baltic Sea
In Scandinavia, taking a ferry is sometimes your best option, for example if you want to travel from Denmark to Sweden. Luckily, you can do this with Scandlines. Their Helsingborg-Helsingor connection is free for Eurail pass holders. Tallink Silja Oy offers a 40% discount for connections to Finland and the lesser-known countries of Latvia and Estonia.
