Fresh fish at the source
Ecological treasure trove
Back from extinction
Surfers of every variety will find exciting challenges along the West Coast, while beginners can try the perfect conditions of Ringkøbing Fjord. Why not try kite surfing or the exhilarating thrill of a day kite buggying?
A blustery beauty
The sea is rougher here than in other parts of Denmark, making these beaches excellent water sports areas. If you’re looking for more child-friendly and family areas for swimming, try the coastal area around Limfjord.
There is a long tradition of delicious smoked fish on the island, particularly herring, mackerel and salmon. Many of the smokehouses are still in use with the characteristic chimneys and tempting smoked scent.
The rugged North
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.
