Smyril Line is a Faroese shipping company, linking the Faroe Islands and Iceland with Denmark, Norway and the United Kingdom.

Since 1983 the company has operated a regular international passenger, car and freight service using a large, modern, multi-purpose ferry named MV "Norröna". The original vessel was a Swedish-built ferry formerly named "Gustav Wasa" (built in 1973). This was replaced by the "Norröna", built in Lübeck, Germany in 2003.

The weekly service serves the following ports:
* Tórshavn, Faroe Islands
* Seyðisfjörður, Iceland
* Bergen, Norway
* Hanstholm, Denmark
* Scrabster, Scotland (from June 2007)

Until the end of the Summer 2007 timetable Smyril Line also served Lerwick in the Shetland Islands.

Smyril is the Faroese word for Merlin.
