I’m going to Gotland to a Swedish friend’s wedding in September this year. I’m staying in Stockholm a couple of days and then I’m off to Gotland. My friend recommended Gotlandsflyg but I’m wondering whether there are other possibilities? And what are the main sites there?
There are ferries from Nynäshamn and Oskarshamn (see our Stockholm guide for tips on getting there). Nynäshamn is the closest one to Stockholm and ferries are operated by Destination Gotland. There are different amounts of departures depending on when you go in the year – in September there should be about 2-3 departures per day. Expect to pay between 195-400 SEK (or less if you’re under 26). To get the cheapest price, try to book online as booking at the terminal or over the phone costs 5% more.
When you get to Gotland, don’t miss taking a walk around Visby (pretty medieval town), visiting Lummelundagrottan (a big old cave full of stalactites), or cycling on Fårö to see the sea stacks. September could be quite warm but then again it could rain for days on end. Good luck!
Leva Kungslador and Gula Hörnan are excellent restaurants! Leva Kungslador is situated in Visby and the also have a shop and display art etc. You can choose to eat your meal in a greenhouse! You find Gula Hörnan in Ronehamn and they serve excellent peruvian food. Have an awesome stay!
