Fynshav, Jylland - Søby, Ærø

Ærø's electric ferry E/F Ellen sails the Fynshav-Søby route up to seven times a day.

Time table and prices

The world's longest sailing electric ferry, Ellen, sails three to seven times a day between Als in Southern Jutland and Søby on Ærø.

This has created a new green climate-friendly transport route from Germany via Southern Denmark to and from Ærø.

You'll find a time table and prices on Ærøfærgerne's website.

E/F Ellen

  • 3-7 crossings per night day and with good opportunities for one-day trips
  • Very low ferry prices almost the whole year - for example DKK 84 for one person return trip
  • 55 minutes crossing time
  • An electric ferry for both cars, caravans, bicycles, motorcycles and pedestrians
  • Access to many cycling and hiking routes directly from the ferry dock in Søby on Ærø
  • No smoke from the chimney or alarm from diesel engines on the electric ferry
  • A green transport that benefits the climate, between two attractive parts of the country in Sønderborg and Ærø Municipality

E/F Ellen has come to the world through an innovation project supported by the EU's green energy pool in a collaboration between Ærø Municipality and several partners, among others. Søby Shipyard on Ærø and Danfoss on Als.

The ferry is a 100% battery-powered ferry and is the world's longest sailor of its kind. The batteries are recharged with electricity from the wind turbines and the crossing can be enjoyed in a different peace and quiet than the one normally experienced on board a traditional diesel ferry.
