Situated off Sweden’s southeastern coast, Gotland is the largest island in the Baltic Sea (2994 sq km in diameter). It is also one of the country’s most beautiful destinations, its tranquil, sparsely populated landscapes almost haunting in their beauty. Archaeological finds attest to a human history that predates the Christian tradition, stretching back some 8000 years.
The island’s protagonist is its capital, Visby. A Unesco World Heritage Site, its old city walls remain almost completely intact, catapulting visitors back to the era of knights in shining armour. Not surprisingly, it’s the perfect backdrop for the island’s annual Medieval Week, during which both locals and visitors dress the part for some time-frozen revelry.
Beyond Visby, wheels are essential for exploring the island’s diverse landscapes, which span sandy shores and secluded coves, to golden, grassy meadows and sleepy little hamlets.
A must on Gotland is a visit to Fårö to visit the giant Rauks – natural limestone pillars that proudly dot the coastline here. If you are a movie buff you’ll love Fårö as it is the former home of world famous Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman. Otherwise it is a gorgeous, almost ‘tropical’ island. Another natural marvel is Gotska Sandön National Park. It really is like being on a tropical island, with azure waters lapping the shoreline, sand dunes and mile upon mile of beach – all to yourself. Sudersand, one of Sweden’s best beaches, can be found on Fårö.
