About Gotland

The island of Gotland east of Sweden´s mainland is no more than 105 miles from north to south and about 30 miles wide, still it welcomes more than 700 000 visitors every year. Gotland has since the days of the vikings enchanted people. Maybe they seek the pristine, unspoiled and changing landscape, the comfortable climate, the large variety of cultural events or the warm and welcoming islanders. The UNESCO world heritage medieval town of Visby and the whole of Gotland, makes the perfect framing of your outings.
