Samsø is Central Denmark Region’s charming green island that is 100% self-sufficient in renewable energy.
The island and the sea around the island invites you to a wonderful mix of deep relaxation in a tranquil setting and glorious holiday activities.
The beaches vary from wide child-friendly beaches with shallow water, to the more rocky beaches with deeper waters, which in turn has some excellent fishing. Everywhere, the water is crystal clear and the coastline means that the beaches are never crowded.
Samsø has a size of 114 km2 and in this area, you will find an indescribably beautiful and varied countryside, which offers many experiences and opportunities for activities. The landscape and the short distances make the island ideal for a holiday on bike.
The island has a string of cozy villages – a total of 22, each with its own character and charm. They are best experienced with a quiet stroll through the winding streets, so you have time to take in all the finer details.
Samsø Municipality is part of European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017.
