Ferries to Gotland

In the heart of the Baltic Sea lies Sweden’s largest and sunniest island, Gotland.

It's a natural exhibition of fascinating medieval infrastructures, boasting ancient churches and walled ruins laced across the grassland.

The main town and port, Visby, is a Unesco World Heritage Site that oozes charm. The sea of quaint cottages surrounded by a 13th Century fortress wall is so extraordinary, it feels as though you’ve walked into to the middle ages.

Gotland’s medieval chapel ruins are some of the most impressive in the world. The standout structure, St Karins Kyrka, was built in 1233 and displays a magnificent interior and awe-inspiring archways.

For a deeper insight into the island's past, organise a tour of the Gotland Museum. It features various exhibits including human skeletons, Viking weapons and the world’s largest booty of preserved silver treasure. You can also learn about how the Black Death devastated the island in the 1700s.

A day at Tofta Viking Village offers a more hands-on approach to learning, where you can live like a Viking for a day. You’ll be taught how to bake 8th Century-style bread, shoot arrows and throw axes.

Make the most of the island’s 800km of coastline and pristine beaches during the summer months. You may even catch the residents playing curious local sports such as ‘Kubb’, which involves hurling wooden batons at wooden blocks.

Why not spend a few leisurely hours searching for fossils along the shoreline? You might even stumble across some hidden Viking treasure. Fossil hunting trips can be booked in Gotlandssmychken, a shop in Visby.

There are two ferry routes connecting Visby and the Swedish mainland. 60km south of Stockholm, on Route 73, is the port of Nynashamn. Here you can choose from three high-speed sailings every day. There’s also a ferry terminal in Oskarshamn, southern Sweden, which provides slightly less frequent sailings.

    Lovely ferry trip. On time, excellent seat near refreshments. Helpful staff, very supportive even though I speak no Swedish. This must be the best ferry I have ever been on.

  • "Plain sailing all the way !"

    It's very easy to book in . Once on board it's easy to find your designated seat . These are comfortable and excellent for having a short sleep en route . Good choice of food available . Everything spotlessly clean . Boarding and embarking trouble free but we did travel in the low season and the boats were barely a quarter full . Only complaint that the train back to Stockholm does not coincide with the arrival of the boat in Nynashamm ; we had to wait for 50 minutes for a connection .

  • "1 ferry out of a 5 ferry trip"

    Clean, ran to schedule. No delays in boarding, very efficient service. Good choice of food available. Better signage of toilets needed, women were queuing a long way from the door. I found other toilets on the floor above but they weren't signposted.
