The quiet motion on the water, the friendly nod to someone else, a cold beer on the sun deck and a look to the Samsø, coming nearer and nearer - It is on the ferry, your holiday begins.
Out of everyday life – on board the ferry
When you drive or walk aboard one of the ferries to the Samsø, you automatically let go of everyday speed and turmoil. The trip is exactly so long that you can manage to forget jobs, bills and window washing and look forward to what you are approaching. If you can drag the kids from the playroom, then take them up on the sun deck with binoculars. From here you can see the islands of Tunø and Endelave if you come from Jutland side or windmills and Vesborg lighthouse if you come from Zealand side. Before you know it, you are on Samsø.
Welcome to Samsø
On Samsø each kilometer is short, and the distance from north to south is only 28 kilometers. But the space is well used and there are lots of exciting roads you can move about on, whether you are in car, on bicycle or walking. When you leave the ferry terminal, Samsø spreads it’s roads in to an idyllic web of winding country roads, which binds the 22 villages together. The short distances between each attraction makes Samsø an excellent cycling destination, and the few places where the bike can not come, is better experienced by foot anyway.
Samsø by car
The main road on Samsø stretches from Nordby in the north to Kolby Kås in south, and will take you through the villages Mårup, Onsbjerg and Tranebjerg. Everywhere on the island, it is recommended to be careful with the speed. The animals are not aware of the traffic rules and are therefore often hit by cars. At the Visitor Center in Tranebjerg, VisitSamsø, you can get a map of Samsø with a separate city map of Nordby and Tranebjerg. You can also find the map of Samsø here.
