South Funen Archipelago by boat & bike

8 days / 7 nights on a traditional Danish Barquentine

The Tour

South Funen Archipelago by boat and bike

The archipelago in Denmark’s south, between the Great Belt and the Langeland belt is a popular, sunny area for sailing, while the islands of Fünen and Langeland offer premium cycling conditions and perfect sandy beaches where you can enjoy the summer. The route from and to Kiel offers an impressive sailing experience - with typically good wind conditions and little swell - so your support may be required when it comes to setting the sails. The boats are former freight sailing boats, which are equipped with the basics, and offer a rustic and cozy atmosphere. See here for more information on our traditional barquentines.
