Go Island Hopping

Hop on the ferry in Svendborg, Faaborg, or Rudkøbing and enjoy the archipelago, which is a calm and serene world of its own. Each island has its own unique history and scenery, though they also have some things in common: splendid coastal nature and islanders eager to give you a warm welcome.

Take the ferry from Svendborg to Skarø, Drejø, and Hjortø, which is home to only a handful of permanent residents. Bjørnø, Lyø, and Avernakø are reached by ferry from Faaborg, and from Rudkøbing, you can go to Strynø.

You can take the regular ferries all year around.
