Gotland

Call 01242 547 922 to speak to a specialist Enquire


In the middle of the Baltic Sea 90km from the Swedish mainland, arriving in Gotland is like stepping into a real-life fairy-tale. Visby is Gotland's only town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site; with its low rise cottages, cobblestone streets, medieval churches, towers, turrets and spires, it's utterly gorgeous. Café culture abounds here; soak up the surroundings as you enjoy coffee and saffranspannkaka, a delicious saffron pancake with red berries and cream. After fuelling up, you can head off to explore this beautiful town, touring the two kilometre medieval wall and taking in architectural delights and countless prehistoric sites as you meander the streets.

Best time to be there
Best visited during the long summer days from May to September when the midnight sun brings 24 hours of daylight, ideal if you are planning to spend much of your time outdoors.
Despite the very cold winters, there is still a great deal to do and see, from husky sledding to ice hotel stays and, between November and March, the chance to witness the Northern Lights.
