Fyn Vacation Packages
Fyn, also known as Funen, is one of Denmark’s true gems, one of the country’s largest islands and an unhurried, microcosm of its finest attributes. Discover pretty villages with half-timbered houses. Step back in time at centuries-old fortresses and Viking-era landmarks. Explore a countryside of undulating hills and lush orchards or go island-hopping around a peninsula with over 90 islets.
Start your Fyn vacation in Odense, the hometown of fairytale author Hans Christian Andersen. Learn about Andersen’s life at his childhood home, a dedicated museum and the recreation of a 19th-century village. Stroll along cobblestone streets lined with boisterous pubs and cozy cafés.
A short drive from Odense, visit the harbor town of Kerteminde, with Denmark’s only Viking ship grave. Catch a boat to the forest-covered island of Romsø or spot waterfowl while sailing around Odense Fjord.
Travel inland to Kværndrup to see Egeskov Castle, a resplendent Renaissance castle built in 1554. Wander along the castle’s ramparts, relax in manicured gardens and visit a vintage car museum. Go to nearby Hesselager and marvel at a megalithic Ice Age stone.
South of Fyn, experience some of the island’s most inspiring countryside. Follow hiking trails in the hills and valleys of Svanninge Bakker. Admire the colorful cottages of Faaborg and retrace the region’s maritime history in Svendborg.
Rent a yacht or board a ferry to go island-hopping around the South Funen Archipelago. The beaches and pretty villages of Ærø and Tåsinge are ideal for escaping the crowds. Avernakø, Bjørnø and Hjortø offer great daytrips.
Find fresh, locally sourced food on Fyn, Denmark’s Garden Island. Shop at roadside market stalls and sample local dishes such as gedemælk rygeost, a smoky goat cheese.
Located in the Syddanmark region, Fyn is just a 2-hour drive from Copenhagen. Intercity trains travel regularly from Odense to Denmark’s major cities. Use local buses for transportation between the island’s towns and villages. Get into the Danish spirit and discover this beautiful island on a rented bicycle.
