Transport to Orø
Orø is closer than you think and with two ferries to the island it is easy and quick to take a detour from everyday civilization on the mainland. With less than a hour’s drive from Copenhagen you can stop at the Østre Færge (ferry) at Hammer Bakke from where ferries sail every 20 minutes and take you to the island in just 6 minutes.
Alternatively, you can drive to Holbæk from Copenhagen in 45 minutes and take the Orø-Holbæk ferry which gives you a nice 30 minute ride on the Isefjord before you reach Orø.
Less than an hour from Copenhagen or 20 minutes from Holbæk you will find this unique cable ferry at Hammer Bakke. With only 6 minutes sailing time to Orø, this crossing is the fastest way to get to Orø from the mainland. There is free Wi-Fi on board. The ferry can also be booked for night departures by phone +45 424242 (night sailing must be booked before 10 pm).
The ferry sails every 20 minutes. Find specific sailing times and tariffs on the ferry’s website.
With regular departures from the centrally located Holbæk Harbor, it is possible to take the car or bike easily to Orø. Enjoy the 30 minute boat trip on the Isefjord and feel the island calm subside over you. If you want to “surf” during the trip, the ferry also offers free Wi-Fi.
