If you’re looking for unspoilt nature aplenty, a beguiling shoreline punctuated with skerries and islets and a perfect place to get away from it all, the furthest of the main islands, candle-shaped VRÅNGÖ, is sure to please. Its one small village lies on the island’s west coast, opposite where the ferry from Saltholmen puts in. From the jetty, turn left for the undulating walking path that leads around the island’s southernmost point to the village. On the way you’ll pass a perfect lagoon with a great beach and a spit of flat stone forming one side. Beyond here are countless creeks and bays where you can sunbathe naked, should you choose, undisturbed. The path continues north of the village, cutting through a nature reserve, on its way back to the ferry quay on the eastern shore.
