SUP excursion: Rudkøbing to Strynø

SUP tour in UNESCO GLOBAL Geopark The South Funen Archipelago

SUP in the archipelago

Starting from Rudkøbing Harbour, you will head southwest along the coast of Langeland. You'll paddle past idyllic beaches, harbour life and maybe even spot porpoises and experience the rich birdlife. Be sure to stop and enjoy the sight of the green UNESCO Global Geopark landscapes stretching far into the horizon.

Head for the beach just south of Strynø Harbour.

After about one and a half to two hours of paddling, you'll reach Strynø, a small island with only about 200 inhabitants. As you approach Strynø Harbour, you'll be greeted by the charming island life (Island of the Year 2022), the Smakke Centre and the most beautiful silence.

It's the perfect place to hop ashore and explore the island on foot, perhaps taking a break and enjoying an ice cream from Strynø Is or a drink at Det Gamle Mejeri.

After experiencing the charm and beauty of Strynø, you can either choose to paddle back to Rudkøbing Harbour and enjoy the views on the way back, or you can continue your adventure and explore more of the surrounding islands. Whatever you choose, a stand up paddle trip from Rudkøbing to Strynø is an unforgettable way to experience the South Funen Archipelago.
