A lovely holiday in Sandkås
Søterrasserne are located in the attractive holiday area of Sandkås, which for centuries has attracted holidaymakers with white sandy beaches and towering cliffs. Sandkås is an old Bornholm expression for "a bay with sand", which well describes the cozy little fishing village. Not far from Søterasserne you will find Sandkås Strand. Because of the trees, it is difficult to spot the beach for passers-by, and you can therefore enjoy a "private" beach that is almost only known to local Bornholm residents - a perfect place to enjoy a sunny summer day. In summer, you can rent paddleboards or kayaks at Cafe Sandkås, and enjoy the fantastic view of Bornholm from the water.
Follow the coastal path to Allinge or Tejn
From Sandkås Beach, you can follow the beautiful coastal path, which offers a wonderful hike on foot. If you go south, you will come to the cozy fishing village Tejn, which houses a cozy harbor environment where you can enjoy a beer at the local brewery Penyllan, have a good bite to eat, or perhaps you want to visit one of the many artisans? The town dates back to 1569, when Tejn was at that time a farming community consisting of farmers and fishermen. The fishing tradition is also kept in check when Tejn hosts the annual fishing competition, Trolling Master Bornholm, where the competition is about catching the biggest salmon.
If you follow the coast path to the north, you will come to Allinge. The trip to Allinge is not long, but set aside some time to stop and enjoy the fantastic view of the sea. You can quickly find a few hours to walk in Allinge – perhaps with a trip past one of the town's two smokehouses, or one of the many other eateries in the town? In the summer you can experience the hawker market at Allinge Harbor, where you can strike a bargain with the locals. In Allinge you will also find Gæstgivergården – a local venue where you can enjoy a summer evening for a cozy intimate concert with some of the biggest names in music in Denmark.
Great nature experiences in Sandvig
The coastal path continues out of Allinge to Sandvig, where you can find Northern Europe's largest castle, Hammershus. In the Middle Ages, Hammershus was an impregnable fortress in medieval Denmark. Did you know that public user fees were already introduced in the Middle Ages? If you had your head chopped off by the executioner, for example, you had to pay yourself... and there was always advance payment. Hammershus holds many exciting historical stories, which you can experience in the Brohuset visitor centre. Here you will find an exciting exhibition where you can learn more about the impregnable medieval castle. In addition, you can satisfy your hunger in the café and enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of Hammershus.
Around Hammershus you will also find many other natural attractions. Among other things, the popular rock formation Kamelhovederne shapes as camels and the old granite quarries, which today have been transformed into beautiful lakes, including Opalsøen, where you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings around the lake or maybe you want to try a trip in Denmark's longest cable car beyond Opalsøen?
On a trip in the rift valleys
Bornholm is known for its many fascinating rift valleys, and you can find one of the most famous rift valleys by taking a walk in the forest behind the holiday apartments - namely "Storedalen". Storedalen was created thousands of years ago when tensions in the underground caused the granite to crack larger and larger cracks. Meltwater from ice age glaciers subsequently eroded away both soil and rock. This gave rise to a gorge with steep cliff sides, which today provides a fantastic experience when you walk there in the middle of the narrow crevasse valley with high cliffs on both sides. The rift valley also creates a growing basis for many beautiful plants. In spring, you can enjoy the sight of the white, yellow and blue anemones as well as yellow wartroot and violet larkspur spores.
