A popular area for yachtsmen, the many islands within the archipelago are diverse and offer their own unique experiences but all are peaceful. Wander round their cosy villages and quaint harbours. You can reach the islands from Jutland and Funen by small ferry boats.
Bornholm and the Ertholmene Islands are the only places in Denmark where you can clamber over and see exposed granite formations. The Hammer, in the north of Bornholm, is a steep granite crag rising out of the Baltic. There are also great walks on the north of the island that take you through rift valleys and large lakes.
