The Alrø-Hjarnø bicycle ferry

Enjoy the cosy trip with the small bicycle ferry that sails on Horsens Fjord. Experience the charming islands of the fjord with beautiful scenery, an authentic island atmosphere and delicious eateries.

Explore the East Jutland Archipelago

Throughout the summer, the bicycle ferry operates between the two islands of Alrø and Hjarnø. Although the islands are quite close to the mainland, you will undoubtedly feel the unique island atmosphere that prevails on the islands. Idyllic half-timbered houses, small charming churches and wild scenery await you on the trip.


Unites the north side with the south side of the fjord

When you buy a ticket for the bicycle ferry, you also get a trip with the Hjarnø ferry from Hjarnø to Snaptun on the south side of the fjord included in the price. From the south side of the fjord, you can get the ferry to Hjarnø, and from Hjarnø on to Alrø. Alrø is connected with the mainland at the northern part of the fjord via an embankment, which means you can cycle or walk the popular route around the fjord.
