Gotland is the largest of the Baltic islands and one of Sweden's most important historic sights. This wonderful island is dotted with over a 100 medieval churches and home to countless prehistoric sites. A highlight is the medieval city of Visby and its magnificent walls. There is also wonderful biking to be found between the churches and great day hikes. There are over 30 hostels to travel between that do get booked in the summertime.

Gotland's climate is comparable to that of Sweden but is known for being a very nice and sunny destination in summer and the island itself has a microclimate with milder winters as well.
Visby Airport (VBY) operates quite a few flights, mainly to all three of Stockholm's airports, as well as flights to Helsingborg, Norrköping, Gothenburg and Riga, seasonal flights to Berlin, Ronneby, Växjö, Hamburg, Helsinki, Sundsvall and Oslo, and charter flights to Burgas, Rhodes, Enfidha, Antalya and Palma de Mallorca. Seasonal and charter flights are mostly in the summer season (April-October).
Destination Gotland operates a three-hour ferry ride from Oskarshamn in Småland and Nynäshamn near Stockholm. During summertime the ferry also runs to Grankullavik on Öland.
