Holiday homes in Bogo – Explore one of many Danish islands
Holiday homes in Bogo, an island lying to the west of the Mon and east of Faro, offer visitors a chance to escape to a secluded Danish vacation in the midst of nature and haunting prehistoric sites. The small island is home to only around a thousand inhabitants. It is seven kilometers long and can be easily covered by foot. The island is connected to Mon and Faro by a causeway and is easily accessible by ferry from Germany and other Danish islands like Falster (from the car ferry at the harbor to the southeast) as well as being close to other islands such as Lolland.
There is only a single town on the island where most locals live - the town of Bogo By, around which many Bogo accommodation options are located. The landscape is dotted with forested areas and traditional villages. Picturesque fjords like the Storstrom and the lovely rural countryside may be visible from your holiday homes in Bogo. To the northwest, visitors will find a small bathing jetty and harbour in Skaninge.
Life in Bogo is leisurely, but for visitors who seek some adventure, there are plenty of scenic bike routes to follow. Ride to the woods in the north-east, where you can find the Hulehoj passage grave. It is expected to date back to 3200 BC and has a 6.3 meter long burial chamber that was once accessed by a tunnel over five feet long. This prehistoric site is remarkable for the weight of the stones and the engineering that must have gone into the construction of the passage. On your ride you may also stumble across the old mill at the center of the island, which is now a working museum. Bogo is as off the beaten track as a holiday in Denmark can get, and your Bogo accommodation is bound to be the perfect place to enjoy the quiet, the scenery and some hearty Danish cuisine.
