Tunø viewed from the air

Welcome to the Eastern Jutland archipelago

There is something special about the Danish islands and their unique atmosphere and culture. Everything happens at a different pace. We, therefore, recommend that you visit them one by one. Take the ferries or your own boat.

Endelave – The Kattegat rabbit island

One of Denmark's finest islands is the home to thousands of wild rabbits. See if you can spot them in the beautiful scenery.

Hjarnø – small and intimate

Small and charming Hjarnø is located close to the coast of Horsens Fjord. From here, you can take the bicycle ferry to Alrø and kill two birds with one stone.

Samsø – the largest

Samsø is the area's largest island. Like the neighbouring island of Tunø, Samsø is known for its stalls with fresh vegetables and locally produced high-quality produce.

Taking the ferry

The islands in this area each have their own ferry that takes residents and guests back and forth between the mainland and the islands. The crossing is cosy and unpretentious. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with the view from the deck. Maybe you are lucky enough to spot seals or porpoises.

From the Hou ferry port, you can catch the ferry to both Tunø and Samsø. 

Ferries to Hjarnø and Endelave depart Snaptun on the south coast of Horsens Fjord. 

Alrø and Hjarnø in Horsens Fjord are connected by a small bicycle ferry.
