About the natural and cultural history

The South Fyn Archipelago extends over 2,500 km2 of land and water. Most of the birds, animals, insects and fish native to Denmark thrive here in a unique and fertile setting.


The archipelago is also the site of one of the largest flooded Ice Age landscapes in the world. It comprises 55 large and small islands, where coves, points and fjords have provided shelter from the elements. Country manors and skipper towns have grown up here, each with a fascinating story to tell from ages past.


The South Fyn Archipelago is liberally sprinkled with destinations that are ideal for everyone who loves spending time outdoors and breathing in the scent of history. No matter whether you choose to walk, cycle, sail or drive around the archipelago, you can be sure of encountering breath-taking natural delights and fairytale stories.
