I just noticed that there is a ferry from mainland spain to Tenerife. I already knew of the ferry to Iceland.

My question is if there are ferries that travel longer distances than these two?

  • Cadiz–La Palma is slightly longer than Portimao–Tenerife. Can there be intermediate stops? – gerrit Jul 19 '12 at 12:22
  • Yes intermediate stops are accepted. The route to Iceland stops on the farroerislands – user141 Jul 19 '12 at 12:26
  • How often should it go to be considered a ferry? The 2219 km I found is just three times a year, so maybe it doesn't really count. Bergen–Kirkenes does, but it does a much longer distance than driving would, and is closer to a cruise-ship than to a ferry in practice. – gerrit Jul 19 '12 at 12:45

Some crossings that are longer than 1000 km, as the crow flies (current as of 2012):

    @PeterGreen Unsurprising. I'm linking to 2012 timetables. – gerrit Mar 23 '17 at 23:37
