More About Saelvig / Samso Island

Saelvig Harbour in on Samso Island. The island of Samsø right in the middle of Denmark located half way between Jutland and Zealand is connected with the mainland via the ferry route from Hou in east Jutland to Sælvig on the west coast of Samsø. The crossing time from Hou to Samsø is one hour.

The ferry route from Hou to Samsø is one of two ferry connections to Samsø. The other ferry route to Samsø connects Kalundborg and Kolby Kaas. Kalundborg is located on the west coast of Zealand and Kolby Kaas sits on the south coast of Samsø.

The ferry route from Hou to Sælvig is operated by the ferry MF Kanhave on the photo above. The ferry was built in 2009, and has cut down the crossing time between Jutland and Samsø with 15 minutes to one hour sharp. There is up to seven daily departures from Hou to Samsø – most during the summer and fewer in the wintertime.

Saelvig Ferry Terminal

Even though that the ferry can carry up to 86 cars, reservations are recommended when travelling to Samsø during the summer. In July and August a smaller passenger ferry is also sailing between Hou and Kolby Kaas. However, this ferry only carries passengers and bikes but no vehicles. The crossing time on the Hou-Kolby Kaas route during the summer is 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Samso Island is located 9 miles off the Jutland Peninsula and a two-hour ferry ride from the mainland (Hou port). Although this island has formed a forward thinking social energy revolution, many travelers say a trip to the island is a trip back through time.

The island has a population of about 4,300. There are 21 wind turbines that power the island, providing enough energy for the island and more. They sell leftover energy to the mainland for a profit. This island is completely self sufficient. The introduction of these renewable energy projects has led to new markets and new well-paying jobs. Samso inhabitants now embrace a lifestyle that has stimulated their economy, improved their way of life, and kept their environment clean.

When visiting Samso you will need to bring your hiking boots and an eco mindset. You will also want to rent a bicycle to explore the area. Public transportation is also an option; the regular bus services are run by an energy-efficient telebus system where buses drive on request.

The first place to visit to fully appreciate what this island is all about is the Samsø Energy Academy where you will learn more about the results of the island experiment and “green technology” in general. Located in the Town of Ballen, a picturesque harbor village, this academy is a perfect example of building while leaving no carbon footprint.

One unique option when visiting Samso is to experience the Prairie Wagon Holiday. Take a few steps back in time and tour Samsø at a slow pace as two Norwegian Fjord horses pull your prairie wagon around the island. Then spend your nights at permanent camp sites with other “prairie settlers”. They even provide a modern electrolux propane fridge on site which is essential for the beer that goes with the barbeque!

Next on the tourist route is Brattingsborg Manor, located in a park in the south of Samso. The manor was built in the English style in 1871-98. The main road passes the park and leads on through a wooded area to the coast. It is open to hikers and cyclists during daylight hours from June to August, and it is an extremely popular location for country walks. The “Vesborg Fyr” lighthouse to the south acts as a landmark.

The largest hotel on the island is the Ballen Badehotel with 37 rooms. This hotel is open seasonally April to Oct. All rooms are equipped with flat screen TVs and have free internet access. There is a seaside golf course nearby and the hotel will book golf packages for you. Their restaurant is considered the best on the island, offering classic Danish and French cuisine prepared with fresh, quality ingredients from the local farms and fishers. Most of the food is organic; locally grown produce growers thrive as the local people try to avoid imported produce grown with oil-based chemical fertilizers. In the summer months, you can usually hear a live orchestra playing in the courtyard to accompany your meal.

If you are looking for a nostalgic, relaxing and healthy break from your daily hectic routine Samso Island is just the place for your next eco-vacation.
