Samsø and the sea around the island invites you to a wonderful blend of deep relaxation in tranquil surroundings and magnificent holiday activities.
The beaches vary from wide child-friendly beaches with shallow water, to the slightly deeper, and elsewhere more rocky beaches, which in return is good for fishing. Everywhere the water is crystal clear, and the long coastline means that the beaches are never crowded.
Samsø is 114 square kilometers, and in this area is an indescribably beautiful and varied countryside that offers many experiences and opportunities for activities. The landscape and the short distances make Samsø ideal for cycling.
Nature wise Samsø is a piece of Denmark in miniature: Coastal stretches with steep slopes, a hilly landscape with deep valleys and glacial gorges, moorland and fertile farmlands and a bay with many islands and islets. The fields, full of vegetables and potatoes, give the landscape its own colourful character. Samsø has a string of charming villages, a total of 22 large or small, each with its own character and charm.
