    The ferry

    The ferry service links Esjberg harbour to Nordby every 20 mins or so with the last hour being around 2am on Saturday (but less frequent from 00.00) and 00.30 on weekdays.

    It's not very expensive if you are on foot (DKR35 return in 2007). If you have a bicycle you must pay the same price for your bike, if you want to take your car it will be DKR 350 in the summer, less in winter.

    Crossings takes 12 mins.

    The butcher shop

    Award winning delicatessen and butcher selling a range of meat, cold cuts, pates and salami as well as Fano beers and various foodie stuff. This is the main butcher on the island.

    What to buy: The salami are divine! My two favourites are the garlic salami and the carrot salami. Nothing to do with the stuff you buy in supermarkets! These are much leaner and are made on the island. Beautiful meat, delicious taste.

    What to pay: You're in Denmark, it's not cheap!

    Good luck, sailors

    While walking around on Fano, you will notice that almost all traditional houses have a little window above the front door with a model boat.
    This is a very traditional good luck charm for the men away at sea. The economy of the island was almost entirely based on fishing and every family home has the model boat to ensure the safe return of sailors
