Weather on Ærø

Also on Ærø we often talk about the weather, but it is really not that strange, since both weather and nature are something very special in the archipelago.

It is not without reason that the islands in the South Funen Archipelago are called the South Sea Islands. The climate here is particularly mild, and Ærø is lucky to be one of the places in Denmark with the most hours of sunshine per year.
