Gotland

Gotland is not only a typical vacation paradise. Gotland and Visby attract visitors the year round. Always present is the peculiar nature and the cultural treasures of the island. Entertainment of a more casual kind you find in the huge choice of different theaters and musical events in the summertime.

Many kilometers of beaches and the fact that Gotland is one of the sunniest places in Sweden makes the happiness for those who just want to relax and enjoy the warm weather. But if you are of a little more active nature the springtime and the autumns are also recommendable times to visit the island. Activities like fishing, horseback riding, climbing and diving are almost better outside the peak season. The springtime offers crystal clear waters, and the autumns are long and mild.
