The South Fyn Archipelago


Go Island Hopping

Hop on the ferry in Svendborg or Faaborg and experience the calm and serene world of the archipelago islands, each with its own unique history and scenery.

Active Vacations in the Archipelago

The South Fyn Archipelago can be experienced in a number of different ways: in a kayak, aboard a sailing ship, on a diving trip, or from the many scenic hiking and cycling routes along the coasts.

The Silence of the Sound

The Silence of the Sound is the first dramatized audio tales. Take a walk from Svendborg harbor to Bertolt Brecht’s house and listen to the cultural history of our region told through the eyes of six writers who live or once lived in Svendborg.

Island Trips and Sunset Trips

For the duration of the school summer break, you can go on four-hour island trips and two-hour sunset trips with the schooner META. Bring your picnic basket and enjoy the view of the islands from the sea.

M/S Helge

Hop on the vintage ferry ‘M/S Helge’ for a unique cruise on the waters of Svendborgsund and experience South Fyn from the sea. The ferry stops a number of times along the way, allowing you to jump on and off. Several of the stops are close to great beaches and ice-cream shops.

Go on an Old-school Sailing Trip

The impressive old sailing ships can be rented for two hours, half a day or a whole day. Maritimt Center Danmark, located at the harbour front in Svendborg, has 20 years of experience organising sailing trips.
