The easy way to get around on your hiking trip

Planning a hiking trip is not always easy, especially if it involves children. There are a lot of details to get right to make it all come together.


We have talked to our most experienced hikers to get the top tips on transportation before, under and after the hike.

Top tip #1

If you want to take the children, your friend or some else entirely fore a short hike without accommodation, you might be surprised that it actually takes some planning ahead.

If the trail doesn’t start and stop the same place you have to consider how to get back to the starting point the smartest way. For example if you wanted to hike just one section on our beautiful Archipelago Trail.

The comfortable way: Attach your bicycle to your car and start by placing it at the end destination of the hike. This could be a restaurant, so you can end the hike with a nice meal. When you are finished eating, you simply hop on your bike, go back to where you started your hike (and where your car is), put the bike back on the car and go get the rest of your hiking crew. Easy, right?

The not quite as comfortable way: You can of course always take the bus back to the starting point and your car. This might involve another walk to and from the bus stop. We recommend using this travel planner to find the right bus and departure time.

Top tip #2

Are you thinking about taking the whole family on a hiking holiday? We highly recommend exploring our package tours. The good thing about this type of holiday is that everything is planned for you. You just have to put on your hiking boots, pack your bag and go hiking without any worries.

Top tip #3

Would you rather decide yourself where to hike and where to sleep? Start by checking out our many hiking trails here on Fyn and the surrounding islands.

Accommodation during the holiday is a must – and there are plenty of possibilities near the different trails. You can see all the accommodation possibilities right here.
