Walking holidays on the Archipelago Trail

On account of its length, the Archipelago Trail is best explored on trips including one or more nights’ accommodation. A fit and experienced hiker should be able to complete the full distance in nine days. Most hikers, however, prefer to choose a single stretch of the route and to combine it with a couple of overnight stays. There are plenty accommodation possibilities along the trail.

The Archipelago Trail was established by Naturturisme I/S on the basis of an excellent working relationship between the four local authorities the trail passes through, the 150 or so property owners who have made land available for the trail, and Naturturisme I/S itself.
