Gotland

There’s something very special about Gotland. It might be the light, the beaches and the ever present sea. The fact that the island is one of the sunniest places in Sweden – even in November – certainly helps. Or it could be the cultural heritage, the history you can see and feel everywhere. Or the people: down-to-earth, hospitable folk who make the most of life. Perhaps it’s the bustling street life in the walled city of Visby. Or is it the scenery, the open and inviting landscape? You’re welcome to discover and explore this one-of-a-kind island, or to rest. The distances here are never far – between north and south, east and west, city and country… and between people. Gotland is always close.
