Island holiday

The fact that Bornholm is an island only adds to that special holiday feeling because you have to travel by plane or ferry to get here. The holiday vibe sets in as soon as you reach the tranquility of the Baltic Sea, where you can lean back in your seat and let someone else take care of the transport.
