Car-free Tunø for the whole family

Just off the Odder coast you will find the small car-free island of Tunø. A small natural paradise with a fantastic history and atmosphere that everyone should experience. A vibrant island community with a town, school, convenience store, great food, a treasure hunt… and a traxi! 

There is room and time to completely relax on Tunø.

Calmly park the car at the harbour in Hou, before you hop on the Tunø Ferry and get off at Tunø Harbour. A major reason for the island’s atmosphere is that it’s car-free. Tunø’s only means of transport are tractors of all kinds, scooters and bicycles.

The ferry takes an hour, and along the way you may be lucky enough to spot harbour seals and porpoises in the waters around Tunø.

Good for the palate and the experience account

Tunø is beautiful and with unspoiled countryside, which calls for presence and quality time. Cool white wine and smoked fish at the harbour and wonderful vegetable stalls by the roadside. It’s true island idyll. Also walk around the island in under three hours.

Especially in the summer, there is life and activity on the island. Vegetable stalls offer new potatoes, crisp green asparagus and fresh carrots. Furthermore, the places to eat at the harbour and in the town are open late. If you come in the winter, you must be aware of changed opening hours.

A few steps from the harbour is the town of Tunø with its cosy village pond. Here you will find Tunø Købmandsgård and the seaside hotel Mejeriet Tunø
