Our island nation

Denmark is made up of 444 islands. That’s right – one island for every day of the year, and then 79 more after that. It’s a great destination if you enjoy island-hopping: from the Fyn archipelago to culinary hot-spot Bornholm, and the eco-orientated island of Samsø, there are plenty to choose from. You can even combine island hopping and cycling on a tour of Denmark – our ferries happily offer space for cyclists, and our interconnecting bridges have bike lanes too.
