Gotland is full of picture perfect moments – vast, open countryside, age-old fossils and rare flowers are just some of the things that characterise this island off the coast of Sweden. And today, you’ll get to appreciate the scenery of this magical island on this easy going tour. It begins with a drive through the town of Visby. Gotland’s capital city is cocooned by wraparound Medieval walls and has a history that spans 7,000 years. Passing the impressive cathedral, flower lined avenues and ancient ruins, you’ll start to understand why Visby is nicknamed the ‘City of Roses and Ruins.’ Leaving the town behind you’ll head out to the green wonderland that is the Gotland countryside. With plenty of stops along the way, you’ll discover one of the many medieval churches that are dotted around the landscape. And you’ll visit the imposing Bronze Age burial ground at “Gannarve Skeppssättning”. Here a group of stone slabs, all standing on their edges, form the shape of a ship. The final stop will be at the top of the Högklint cliffs. From here you can admire the views covering the coast of Gotland, so don’t forget your camera.
