Cykel Bornholm

Looking for an active holiday at Bornholm?

Shipwreck views!

Try the old coast walking trails and cycling routes for fantastic views of the island. If you dive, there are many shipwrecks along Bornholm’s north and east coasts waiting to be explored.

Beach sports

Bornholm’s southern beaches are a great place to try sports such as beach volleyball, kite surfing and wind surfing. You can also rent boats and sea kayaks, to explore the island from the surrounding Baltic Sea.

Bornholm Culture

Natural experiences

The rugged North

The northern part of Bornholm is particularly dramatic, with cliffs and rocks lining the coast. Just 5km north of the pretty seaside village of Gudhjem, rise the 22 metre high granite Sanctuary Cliffs (Helligdomsklipperne). Between Hammerknuden crag and the town of Hasle, you’ll find the unique rock features of the Lion’s Head and Jon’s Chapel (Jons Kapel).

Funen's Head

Natural experiences

A land shaped by ice

The lovely, sloping South Funen landscape is at its picturesque best between the towns of Svendborg and Faaborg. North of Faaborg, you find the rolling Svanninge Hills (Svanninge Bakker) with steep ravines resulting from the last glacial period, around 14,000 years ago. 

Rubjerg Knude

Natural experiences

Where two seas meet

Stand in two different seas at Grenen, Denmark’s most northerly point or visit Råbjerg Mile, Denmark's largest shifting sand dune, which is slowly moving from west to the east. 

Walking guidebooks

The Nature Agency produces information leaflets containing maps and descriptions of all public nature areas in Denmark. You can pick up these helpful guides for free at local tourist offices. 

Tip! Hire a guide

A super way to experience Denmark’s nature is to hire a ranger, or guide, to tell you about interesting things along the way. Find out more about this service at your local tourist office or at the visitors centres located in Denmark’s national parks.
