Return sailing trip to Store Okseø

On the island of Store Okseø you’ll find diverse and varied countryside and can enjoy a fantastic view of Flensburg Fjord and a unique outdoor experience with the chance to book an overnight stay in a shelter or tent.

The boat sails from Sønderhav just opposite Annies Kiosk, and takes around five minutes to make the crossing to the island.

Store Okseø covers an area of eight hectares. With a one kilometre-long bootleg trail running round the entire island, it’s an ideal destination for a day-trip. A number of different families have lived on the island over the years, but today all the houses and buildings have been removed and the island has returned to its natural fauna and flora. Store Okseø is managed by the Danish Nature Agency and the tour isn’t suitable for the disabled.

The boat sails from Sønderhav, just opposite Annies Kiosk, Fjordvejen 67, 6340 Kruså. Remember to take all necessities, such as drinking water and food, with you.

There are no waste bins on Store Okseø. Take care of the countryside and make sure you take your waste back home with you.

The island has a composting toilet that can be used by visitors. We urge you not to leave any traces of your stay on the island – and this includes toilet paper. The public toilets at Sønderhav can be used both before and after your trip.

You can also stay overnight in a shelter or a tent on the island. You must book your overnight stay through the Danish Nature Agency. https://www.booking.naturstyrelsen.dk/Home/Liste

All bookings must be made online and you must book your return trip to Sønderhav at the same time.

Dogs and other pets are not permitted on the boat.

We draw special attention to the fact that the trip is not suitable for people with walking difficulties. This especially applies to the conditions for boarding and disembarking the boat and the small footpaths on the island
