Off topic, but on the subject of the moment, does anyone know of a source that lists all currently-operating scheduled ferry services in and around Europe? (By "around Europe," I'm including to services to Iceland, the Canaries, etc., across the Mediterranean....)

Inside Canaries Fred Olsen, Transmediterranea and Naviera Armas.

I think that from Europe to Canaries only Transmediterranea... but I heard it was possible to make a Funchal-Gran Canaria. One mate had to move his car and was considering all options and one of them was a Faro-Funchal and Funchal-Gran Canaria. But I do not know with which company.

No, and to Europe only via Cadiz. Sometimes the same ferry arrives to Barcelona but it is not usual.

By plane there is a Gran Canaria-El Aaiun weekly though, but no other destinations in Morocco.

and nothing with other "neighbour" countries in western Africa.

Looking at the situation, they are seven islands that receive a lot of central Europe tourism, almost all goods they require are made there. There is no industry to export, and any goods you have to import will be easy to import them from any EU country than outside event if there is only 97 km from Fuerteventura island to Morocco (somewhere in the middle of nothing in Morocco... but continental Africa)

Impressive (although Athens isn't really necessary).

People individually do not recognize countries. Countries recognize countries.

The only connection to Iceland is from Hirtshals, DK. I don't know if there are ferries from Bergen, Norway.

It's Nis allright. But it's taken in the center. If you look carefully you see a white sign with aerodrom (airport) to the left, but you could make a u-turn and head west towards the airport

There used to be a service on Smyril Line from Bergen to Seydisfjördur. During the 2000's this service has also called either Scrabster on the GB main island or Lerwick on the Shetland islands (which administratively belong to Scotland as well). However, it was suspended around 2010.

I wonder if the Icelandic state is subsidizing their only ferry route, 500EUR to bring your car to Iceland one way is quite a lot of money, although cheap if you consider that the trip takes 66 hours. That is 7 EUR/hour. Rödby-Puttgarden takes 45 min and costs 70 EUR one way that's 93 EUR/hour outrageously expensive !!
