Spring on Ærø is a very special experience. The island slowly starts to warm up for the summer, which is why the atmosphere on the island is both expectant and relaxed. The birds are chirping and the ice cream queues aren't too long yet.
Spring on Ærø comes very suddenly. The island awakens abruptly from its winter hibernation, and with dazzling speed the flowers start blooming on bushes and trees in a true symphony of colours,
The shops, cafes and restaurants that have been closed during winter now opens for the season, and the first yachts as well as larger wooden ships start to arrive in the harbours.
Each year the rapeseed fields colour large parts of the island in bright yellow and the red dots of poppies can be seen in both small and large assemblies around the fields.
You must remember to stop and enjoy all the colours, scents and whimsical winds, because the flowering time is as short and intense as it is beautiful.
