    Destination Gotland

    by Jschukal Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We booked tickets at an agent in Stockholm. It includes a 1hr bus ride to the ferry pictured which takes about 3 hrs to Gotland. The boat is extremely roomy and comfortable. Make sure you book in advance for the way back as they do fill up. We were lucky to make standby on the return.

    Buses around the island.

    by Dizzyhead Updated Aug 8, 2009

    The best way to go around Gotland is by bus if you want to use the public transportation things. No trains on Gotland for public transportation. If you check on internet you can get time table and more information about the public buses.

    www.gotland.se/kollektivtrafiken

    You arent allowed to drink alcohol in the bus or smoke cigarretts. totally forbidden!

    Save the ticket during all the trip, if they check that you have paid. It is the best evidence that you have paid.

    If you are a student you get cheaper tickets too.

    You are allowed to bring bikes and it cost 40 Swedish crones.

    Destination Gotland

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The way most people get here is by ferry since then they can bring their car, caravan and so on along on holiday, or all sorts of things should they be locals shopping in mainland Sweden. Gotlanders have a discount on the ferry since they don't have much of a choice if they want to bring their vehicles but the rest of us pay a bit more. The cheapest tickets do not include a seat reservation so there is a bit of a scrum to reach seats in the restaurant area for the 3 hour crossing but this is usually not that much of a problem - should you want to eat, people are used to sharing tables and many also bring their food to their reserved seats. The reserved seats are what I recommend and a popular thing is to book seats in the front lounge where you can see Gotland suddenly appearing at the horizon. The seats are really comfy, a bit like on planes, and if you bring earphones you can listen to the film sometimes shown on board. Otherwise, the information desk will rent you DVD players and Nintendo games to fill up your time. You can also spend it on the sun deck with a beer if the weather is pleasant enough. The ferries go to Visby and leave from either Nynäshamn (an hour south of Stockholm by commuter train) or Oskarshamn further south. Summertime there are also ferries from Grankullavik on the neighbouring island of Öland these days again. The ferry company site below also offer accommodation packages.

    The island Fårö is located north of Gotland. The best way to get there is by the car ferry leaving from Fårösund.

    Daytime the ferry leaves every 30 minute. Check the website for more information.

    ..just arrived

    Silja Opera-the best way to get from Tallinn to Visby . From mid June until mid August the Silja Opera will take you to Visby! it takes about 13 hours, but dont worry the ferry has a very nice sun deck with a swimming pool and many bars!
