What is the most remote place in Denmark you have been?
Today I had the chance to say that I have been to places where my Danish colleagues have never been. I am proudly adding more points to my destinations and I keep breaking my record for most remote places I can visit in Denmark!
Today I had the chance to visit Årø island for a day. Årø is not a remote island but you could technically call it that. It is close to mainland and a bit less than 2 hour boat trip from Haderslev with around 150 inhabitants and no supermarket. At least that is what stuck to my mind-I understand there’s no police, no ambulances, no doctors etc but how can there be no supermarket or minimarket at least? And what happens then to the nearby island called Bågø, where just 22 people live? Hats off to these people who seem to be very well trained and self sufficient!
Choosing to go to this island out of summer season indicates no activity….and I cannot stress this enough. If you wish to relax, fish, listen to the wind, talk with the birds, go for it. If on the other hand you would enjoy to hear periodically some voices during the day, try summer 🙂
So, how was our day there? We started our day by having lunch at an old barn, took a walk around the village and finished with a tour by a tractor bus to see the vineyards and landscape of the island.
So, I would really like to know, what is the most remote and interesting place in Denmark you have been?
I hope you enjoy the pictures!
