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.

By island hopping you can visit seven of the islands in the South Fyn Archipelago. 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.

Island hopping tickets are sold from 29 June to 11 August 2019. During this period, the yellow catamaran ‘Sea Hawk’ serves as a supplemental ferry service between the archipelago islands in addition to the regular year-round ferry service connecting the individual islands with Svendborg, Faaborg, and Rudkøbing.
