Denmark Sailing Destination

Denmarkis a versatile adventure sailing paradise, surrounded by water and with thousands of kilometers of coastline, countless fjords and hundreds of small islands. A very popular area of Southern Denmark is the South Funen archipelago. The South Funen Archipelago is, as the name suggests, filled with islands and islets, inhabited as uninhabited. In total, you can count 55 islands in the archipelago, which is the world's largest flooded ice age landscape. Only the highest hills protrude from the sea, and these are the islands.

Experience Denmark

The waters around Sjælland can also offer great sailing experiences. The Småland waters, between Sjælland and Lolland, have deserted salt marshes, forested manor environments and calm waters between fjords, healthy and small islands. And the trip through Bøgestrømmen is definitely one of the more memorable, just as a trip through Guldborgsund is a great experience. In the south-eastern corner of Sjælland, Præstø Bay and Feddet are good hiking destinations. The Isefjord, located in Nordvestsjælland, is also a wonderful yachting area with many opportunities. Among other things, the towns of Nykøbing Sjælland, Holbæk, Roskilde, Frederikssund, Frederiksværk and Hundested are all directly next to the fjord, which is otherwise well equipped with anchor buoys for those who are looking for peaceful accommodation. The fjord has an outlet in the Kattegat between Hundested and the small cozy town of Rørvig, which in the summer offers a real harbor and summer holiday atmosphere. The Isefjord covers an area of more than 300 km2, and in fact consists of several fjords with independent names, namely Lammefjorden, Holbæk Fjord and Roskilde Fjord. Further west are the islands of Als and Flensburg Fjord, which are also very popular yachting areas. Here you can, among other things, visit one of Denmark's national symbols, Dybbøl Mill, from the water side and experience Sønderborg's charming waterfront with many cafes and restaurants. The trip up through the Little Belt is also a great experience (due to the strong current in the water, it is best to make the trip from south to north). Haderslev and Kolding Fjord also offer themselves here. At Lillebæltsbroen there is land access to both sides and many beautiful views. Østjylland with Aarhus Bay, Kalø and Ebeltoft Vig, Horsens and Vejle Fjord as well as Samsø and several small islands is another favorite yachting area. Experience Mols Bjerge from the sea side and visit the town of Ebeltoft, which with its fine, old houses and cobbled streets is one of Denmark's nicest. Also experience the unique harbor environment in Øer Havn not far from Ebeltoft, or head out into the Kattegat to Samsø, where Ballen Havn in particular is very popular during the summer months. Bornholm, if you want to go on a "long voyage", and at the same time experience a piece of unique Danish nature, you must go to the rocky island of Bornholm, which is located in the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Poland. Here you can, among other things, experience Hammerknuden, the rugged mountain that rises vertically from the sea, just as you can experience a whole string of small cozy harbor towns. From Bornholm you can take a detour to Denmark's easternmost point, the twin islands Christiansø and Frederiksø, 20 km northeast of the "mainland". Here, where time seems to stand still, the seagulls' cries are the only thing that disturbs the peace - true lice for body and soul.
