Billund --> Hjorring --> Hirtshals

I'm looking for more information about train routes between Billund and Hjorring. Through online research i've found that the train between Hjorring and Hirtshals is a very quick local ride but I cannot find ticket information, rates or anything about train travel between Billund and Hjorring?

No wonder you can't find any information on train travel between Billund and anywhere. As BIllund isn't covered by the rail network.

To get to Hirtshals you need to take a bus to Vejle and board a train there to Aalborg. There you get the Trainbus (Togbus - Bus for Train due to works on a railwaybridge that a freight vessek rammed earlier this year). The bus will take you to Hjorring where you board the train to Hirtshals.

I am trying but it's difficult for me to navigate the site, even translated.

All I really need to know is if there is in fact a train route between Billund and Hjorring.

There are no trains running north of Limfjorden this summer. Not only due to repair work on the damaged bridge, but also because new tracks are laid between Aalborg and Frederikshavn.

The bus from Billund to Vejle costs DKK 58 one-way.

That still does make a bus to a train.

Until the track renovation is finished buses substitute trains.

Further - bus 980 only runs once a day (twice on Fridays and Sundays).

Thank you Hans.

The trip i'm planning is in October. Any idea if the trains would be operational then?

Any estimation in the length of the bus trip?
