Take a couple of days out of your diary and enjoy the combination of indulgence at Sønderborg’s newest hotel, Alsik Hotel & Spa, with a hiking trip on the Gendarme Path that runs along the banks of Flensburg Fjord.
The attractive, newly-opened Alsik is one of Denmark’s most inviting and interesting hotels. The hotel, which is characterised by tasteful Nordic design and the use of natural materials, is an element in famous architect Frank Gehry’s master plan for the waterfront in Sønderborg. From the stylish and ultramodern rooms and suites there are views of both the town and one of the most beautiful fjord landscapes in Denmark.
At the hotel a world of experiences awaits you in a luxurious, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The hotel’s three restaurants are developed and run by esteemed master chef Jesper Koch. In one of the restaurants, Restaurant Alsik, a delicious 3-course dinner awaits you.
The Gendarme Path is one of Denmark’s most popular longer hiking routes – and it’s easy to see why! The path winds along the fjord coastline and has a unique history, as well as rich wildlife and flora. Most of the Gendarme Path runs along Flensburg Fjord and through varied terrain consisting of forest, beach and meadow.
In this mini break we give you the chance to experience both the luxurious Alsik hotel and the picturesque scenery along the route followed by the Gendarme Path. Our driver will pick you up at the hotel and drive you out to the path, from where you can then walk back to Sønderborg. The driver will have several suggestions as to where you can be dropped off depending on how far you wish to walk. Generally we recommend that you’re driven out to Broagerland; on the way back to Sønderborg you’ll then pass by Dybbøl Mill and some of the entrenchments where fierce battles took place in April 1864.
After you’ve completed your booking, we’ll contact you to arrange whether you wish to hike on the day of arrival or the day of departure and where you wish to be picked up.

Aperitif in the bar before dinner
