Ok way to get between Horten-Moss. Upside: walking passengers goes for free. Downside: a bit expensive with normal car. Ok cafe on board, but also a bit expensive.

Everything was great. It takes about 30 minutes from Horten to Moss. And a boat leaves every 20 minutes . It costs 180 crowns for 2 people with a car. Everything was great in the boat.

Great way to cross the fjord between Moss and Horten. Cafe on board for hot meals, snacks and beverages. Plenty of comfortable seating for the 30 minute ride. Nice views and outside seating available.

The Basto ferries had new ferries delivered in 2017, making the about 30 minutes trip even shorter and more comfortable. On a summer day you should enjoy the voyage on deck, with a nice view on the outher Oslo fjord. Inside Wifi and a cafe...More

We arrived Friday afternoon and waited a few hours to get on the ferry! Reason, the roundabout nearby was full and the trucks could not get of the ferry. Expensive cafeteria and outdated product selection

The ferry is not to bad, but the food sold in the cafeteria is expensive and medium quality. The trip do not last very long between the two cities, so no real reason to buy food in the boats restaurant.

Our rental car had a pass on it that was scanned automatically when we drove through. Then we paid when we turned the car in. Otherwise there is a toll booth you drive through to pay, cash or credit card.
