Play Robinson Crusoe for a day and explore the deserted island off the coast of North Funen. It is not dangerous - as long as you follow our advice, you can have a wonderful experience in the beautiful nature.
Today, Æbelø is a nature reserve, and nature is allowed to look after itself, becoming like the primeval forest. Here are sea eagles, deer and muflon and many rare insects and birds - remember to bring your binoculars! Æbelø is also a fantastic fishing spot all around the island.
Æbelø was previously covered by forest, and there has also been farming. More than 40 people lived here just 50 years ago, and you can still see the main countryhouse Æbeløgård and the lighthouse as well as the ruins of the other houses. Along the coast there is a fantastic view. As you walk along the coast on Æbelø, you can see that the cliffs with trees are sliding down into the sea. It is the plastic Æbelø clay that causes the soil layers to slide apart. Here's so much to look at - pack a food basket and head out for a nice hike!
