Hotel Ry is surrounded by Denmark's most beautiful nature and virtually all of Denmark's highest points. The surrounding nature, also called the Søhøjlandet, invites to a wide range of outdoor activities: Canoeing, kayaking, sub boards, cycling, hiking, horseback riding and much more.


The area also offers nice beaches, so remember to bring swimwear and snorkeling equipment - or fishing gear.




SUP Board, Paddleboard, SUP, Stand Up Paddleboard. Dear child has many names, and the water sport, where you paddle around on the big boards, has become more and more popular in Denmark in recent years.


The many lakes in Søhøjlandet provide an obvious setting for this fun challenge at sea. SUP boards are suitable for both young and old - as long as you are not afraid of getting wet while learning the technique!

Ask the reception if you are interested in the SUP Board.
