Here on the island of Bornholm, we love our nature. Actually, we love it so much, that we use it all year round. Bornholm encompasses rocky landscapes, deep forests, open spaces, long coastlines, white beaches and hilly terrain. The great diversity of landscapes holds many possibilities of outdoor experiences, where you can try everything; from hiking to fast.paced mountainbiking as well as diving, kayaking, surfing and much more. Nature delivers outdoor experiences on land and at sea.
In other words: Bornholm has the best opportunities for outdoor experiences.
To continue enjoying our beloved bornholmian nature, we have developed Bornholm’s Outdoor Code. A code of easy ethical guidelines ensuring courtesy, good experiences and safety within nature.
We hope, that you will assist us maintianing good experiences for everyone within the beautiful nature of Bornholm. See you out there!
