Gateway to Europe

GATEWAY TO EUROPE

Our short, convenient sailings from Dover to Dunkirk are the perfect way to start a trip to Europe. Dunkirk is less than 25 miles north of our Calais port, so like Calais, it provides easy access to destinations in France, Germany, Holland and Belgium, as well as further afield. No matter where you’re heading, it all starts with a ferry crossing from DFDS.
