It is often said that Gotland is a short journey far away, and it really is a special place - in the middle of the Baltic Sea. Nature is varied with white soft sandy beaches, impressive rauk fields, steep rocky shores, beautiful meadows, cobblestone beaches and windswept rocky forests that grow directly on the bedrock.
The Gotland Trail extends around the whole of Gotland, from Fårö in the north to Hoburg in the south. The white gravel roads of Gotland lime shine in the sunshine, and the light is strong and intense like the Mediterranean. Even the entertainment life and all the cozy outdoor seating contribute to the continental feeling. As you cycle you will pass cozy cafes, farm shops, artisans, flea markets and lovely swimming areas. Everywhere there are also traces from the early Middle Ages, when the ring wall and Visby city center grew and the island's nearly hundred medieval churches were built.
In summer, several of the major roads are heavily trafficked. The signage is sometimes deficient, and we recommend that you have access to a good cycling map. The Swedish Cycling Association has developed the route of the trail and put up all signs along the Gotland Trail. The trail has partly been given a new route and therefore does not fully correspond with the bike map. We will update the website when we have access to more information.
