Activities and island hopping

Experience the South Funen archipelago - Lyø and Avernakø

M/F Faaborg III sails from Faaborg to Lyø to Avernakø and back – in the beautiful shallow waters of South Funen.

On the islands Lyø og Avernakø you have the possibility to experience exceptional nature and history whether you travel by bike or by car. Read more here: Welcome to Lyø & Welcome to Avernakø.

Island hopping: Visit both Lyø and Avernakø on the same trip

Buy just one ticket and go island hopping to both Lyø and Avernakø for one or several days. All tickets are return tickets no matter whether you visit one or both islands. 

You can plan your island hopping route yourself, but in case you want a one-day-trip only, you have most opportunities if you visit Lyø first and Avernakø next. 

A high season island hopping schedule may look like this: 

1) From Faaborg to Lyø at 10:00 - From Lyø to Avernakø at 12:40 - From Avernakø back to Faaborg at 15:10, arriving at 15:40. This allows you to have two hours on each island and requires spending five hours and forty minutes on the trip. 

2) From Faaborg to Lyø at 10:00 - From Lyø to Avernakø at 14:40 - From Avernakø back to Faaborg at 19:20, arriving at 19:45. This allows you to have four hours on each island and requires spending nine hours and forty-five minutes on the trip. 

PLEASE NOTICE: When booking your island hopping tickets, you must book three individual departures, i.e.: 1  Faaborg to Lyø  2  Lyø to Avernakø 3  Avernakø to Faaborg.

In case you would like to spread your island hopping out over several days with overnight stays on one or both islands, it is important to sail directly from one island to the next and not sail via Faaborg. In case you do so, you will be subject to ticket control.  

You will find links for the islands, sights, cafes, shopping and B&B opportunities on the front page and on Welcome to Lyø and Welcome to Avernakø

We look forward to welcoming you on Faaborg III.
