Anglers head to Funen for some of Europe's best coastal angling spots, particular good for catching sea trout. You’ll find great locations for angling on both Funen and the South Funen Archipelago.
Produce from the source
Funen is a green and fertile island with many orchards producing not only wonderful fruit but also delicious juice. You can often buy farm produce directly from the source, at roadside booths, a particular characteristic of Funen.
Peace and quiet
As well as great beaches around the coast of Funen itself, the South Funen Archipelago also offers great opportunities for swimming. Since the distances are short between beaches, it’s never far to your own quiet bit of beach.
