Orø: Another world, close to the city written by Sarah Steinit

Ødyssé

As part of our "Ødyssé", we have met many Copenhageners who want to go out and experience the Danish islands, but who think that it is still too expensive, too time-consuming and too difficult to get out to sniff for island life. If you are one of them, Orø is the answer. In less than an hour you can put the noise and bilos of the capital behind you, drive off on the motorway, spend 5 minutes on a cozy, small tow ferry and vupti, then you are on Orø.

With its 4 × 6 kilometers, Orø has a fairly manageable size, which makes the island ideal for cycling, just as a larger system of "footpaths" makes it possible to walk along the beautiful coast, find some of the coveted island tranquility and look towards Holbæk. , which suddenly seems a bit like another world.

About the travel writer

Sarah Steinitz

Sarah has a degree in sociology from the University of Copenhagen with a supplementary education in journalistic communication from the Danish Media and Journalism Academy.
From March to September 2018, she and Tine Tolstrup will explore the island kingdom and travel to 37 islands in Denmark. It's going to be an adventure. An adventure they call The Odyssey. They are part of a generation that flies around the world after the book "1000 places you must see before you die", but still have never been to Avernakø or driven over Storstrømsbroen. They will seek out the adventures that await around the corner - on Fejø, Fanø, Fur and the 34 other islands that they travel around on their Ødyssé.
