The archipelago trail – hiking on Fyn

Photo: Destination Fyn

The Archipelago Trail is one of the longest hiking routes in Denmark, comprising fully 220 km of hiking trails set against the backdrop of the South Fyn Archipelago. We guide you to an unforgettable and beautiful hike in the nature in the southern part of Fyn.

The route follows all kinds of highways and byways, providing a fine introduction to a cultural landscape distinguished by delightful areas of countryside, manor houses, villages and market towns. Enjoy the different views out over the archipelago, soak up the special atmosphere in the charming little island communities, and experience an internationally recognised bird habitat.

The Archipelago Trail is a network of paths primarily intended for hikers and ramblers. The entire route is signposted with poles bearing blue pictograms of a hiker.

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.

If you would like to go on a walking holiday along the Archipelago Trail, you can buy package tours including luggage transport – so you can devote all your energy to enjoying the trip.

Consideration, tips and advice

You are more than welcome to walk in the countryside, but please show consideration. Study our tips and advice before starting out, and read about the considerations intended to ensure that everyone enjoys the best experience.

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.

Enjoy your hike!
