South Funen

The South Funen Archipelago

A unique area of 55 islands in the Baltic and easily accessible from the islands of Funen and Zealand, this archipelago is popular with yachtsmen, watersports enthusiasts and anyone looking for their own quiet stretch of sand.

Peace and quiet

The South Funen Archipelago is often viewed as a whole island group, but the many islands within the archipelago are diverse and offer their own unique experiences. They do have a number of things in common, however, such as peaceful nature, cosy villages and quaint harbours.

Fairy-tale island of Ærø

With its picture-perfect old houses and cobbled streets, it's easy to see why visitors to the island of Ærø call it Denmark's fairy-tale island.

Yachting

The Archipelago is very popular with yachtsmen who enjoy easy access to natural areas, the challenge of sailing in an archipelago and a good range of berths and harbours.  

Denmark's new artificial reef

In October 2014, the iconic M/F Ærøsund, Denmark's last train ferry, was scuttled in the South Funen Archipelago, to create a new diving spot.

Getting there and away

You can reach the islands from Jutland and Funen by small ferry boats. You can also find ferry information here.
