History of the South Fyn Archipelago

The South Fyn Archipelago is a sunken Ice Age landscape with a fantastic history and a picture-perfect landscape. The large area of about 480 km² is characterised by the last Ice Age moving across Fyn. More than 55 green and lush islands and islets are scattered throughout a blue shallow sea, where a mild climate all year creates the basis for its rich plant and animal life. Several areas of the archipelago are designated as sanctuaries for breeding birds and have strict access requirements. Others are vulnerable nature reserves with unique plant and animal life.
