TRANSPORT TO ORØ
Two ferry routes make Orø easily accessible. With under an hour’s drive from Copenhagen to the Østre Ferry at Hammer Bakker and the 6 minute crossing to the island, the trip is made in just an hour’s travelling time.
Østre Ferry has a regular 20 minute daytime schedule. Or you can drive to Holbæk from Copenhagen in 45 minutes, then take the Holbæk-Orø Ferry for a pleasant 30 minute trip on the Isefjord before arriving at the island. If instead you choose to travel by train to Holbæk, it is just a 10 minute walk through the town to the ferry.
FOUR FERRIES & THE FJORD TRAIL
Taking a tour all the way around the Isefjord is an exhiliarating experience in every sense of the word, and suitable for all ages. Buy a combined ticket for all four ferries, and travel at the tempo and by the means that suits you best. Quite apart from the lovely scenery, the tour offers a number of landmarks and attractions, to which your ticket gives a discount.
Driving by car, the tour takes you on both Orø-ferries, Rørvig, Kulhuse and Hundested ferries. An even greater experience is to walk or cycle along the Fjord-path, which goes almost all the way around the fjord, often along the actual shoreline.
