The idylic village of Lynæs

Lynæs lies perfectly sheltered by the high cliffs of the headland at the inlet to Isefjord, just 2 km/1 mi south of Hundested. This idyllic fishing village is one of Denmark's oldest – and today, thousands of sailors from Isefjord, Roskilde Fjord and Kattegat flock to the charming marina.

Lynæs is packed with fun adventures for the whole family. Children can enjoy the fun playground and adventure bridge at the harbour, where you can also use the BBQs, sea swimming bath, and the two shelters and bonfire areas.

The summer months are full of various activities and music events on the pier. Keep an eye out for 'Live I Lynæs', for example, which provides great live music on five Fridays during the summer. If you fancy lunch or a treat, the port has eateries and an ice cream parlour, and you can also buy some freshly caught fish to take home.

So there are plenty of reasons to drop by and enjoy the great atmosphere.

By the way, did you know that the famous Lynæsjolle originates here from the area?

Eat & Shop

Lynæs Fisk & Steakhouse is a restaurant and fish shop in one, and throughout the summer, you can at Lynæs Surfcenter enjoy the food from food trucks or participate in communal dining every Thursday.

On Saturdays, you can buy fresh fish from Isefjord Fisk at the harbour in Lynæs. Here, the fish are so fresh that they are landed directly from the boat and up on the counter.

If you need gear for your wardrobe, look online at LYNÆS Denmark in the community at the surf centre.

Unique accommodation

Once you get tired, it is easy to find an excellent place to stay in or around Lynæs. If you're visiting by boat, the marina is the place to be. Other accommodation options include Lynæs Camping, the unique surf shacks or glamping tents at Lynæs Surfcenter or one of the lovely shelters on the town's harbour.

The natural environment surrounding Lynæs offers plenty of activity. There is also a lovely, child-friendly beach where you can enjoy the beautiful sunrise over the harbour if you're up early enough.

Tip: Do you love art? Then visit the small Haugen Gallery, which the painter and graphic artist Arne Haugen Sørensen has chosen as his exclusive gallery in Denmark. It is inside a disused bakery almost at the very tip of the headland, the perfect space to have peace so you can completely immerse yourself in the many beautiful works.

Active by the water ...

At Lynæs Surfcenter, you can have a go at a variety of water sports, from windsurfing to SUP and kayaking. If you're a beginner, you can book lessons with an instructor, and if you're already pretty experienced, you can hire
equipment and jump straight into the waves.

Surfcentret can best be described as a 'micro resort' with its roots in surf culture. If you'd rather hang out on the beach, the café at Lynæs Surfcenter is worth a visit. Hot coffee, cold drinks and juicy burgers are served all year round. It has a relaxed atmosphere. You will notice your shoulders relax and drop as soon as you enter. It's open to everyone, whether you're here for the surfing, enjoying a delicious bite to eat or just watching the sunset.
