Definition from Den Danske Ordbog:
Ferierejse mellem øer i et farvand med mange (små)øer.

Example sentence(s):
  • Den danske del af øhoppet begynder med en tur til Mandø. Dagen efter tager cykelgæsterne færgen fra Esbjerg til Fanøs afvekslende vadehavslandskab, klitheder og plantager. - Lolland-Falsters Folketidende (DDD)  
  • Øhop i Grækenland for begyndere: Det kræver en vis portion planlægning at øhoppe i Grækenland, men oplevelsen ved at rejse fra ø til ø i øgruppen Dodekaneserne er besværet værd. - Jyllands-Posten  
  • Hawaii - Det ultimative øhop: Oplev det eventyrlige og kontrastfulde Hawaii på dette ultimative ø-hop mellem Maui, Big Island, Oahu og Kauai. - Check Point Travel  

Den Danske Ordbog suggests øhop as well as øhopning or øhopping. (None of these appears in the most official dictionary of the Danish language, Retskrivningsordbogen, however).
Øhop would be the actual trip.
Øhopning or øhopping would be the act of travelling from island to island.
As a verb, øhoppe would be used.
