After a year operating the “salmon route”, Smyril Line Cargo is putting sailings on hold.

It was roro vessel AKRANES that operated the route from Central Norway to the Netherlands since summer 2020.

AKRANES will now be servicing a new route between Thorlakshøfn, in Iceland´s West coast, Tórshavn, and Rotterdam.

The new route gives Icelandic and Faroese exporters new options with departures Wednesday evenings from Iceland and Thursday evenings from Tórshavn direct to Europe.
