Gotland and Stockholm

Experience the magic of Stockholm during the long summer days and the popular Baltic holiday island of Gotland with Simply Sweden

Overview

Stockholm is a city on water and often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’. Made up of 14 unique islands, the centre of Stockholm features the history of the Old Town, the culture of Södermalm and the green spaces of Djurgården. With small and personal hotels, excellent public transport and interesting and exciting attractions it is not surprising that Stockholm is the capital of Scandinavia.

Gotland is Sweden's largest island with 500 miles of stunning Baltic coastline. It is located 120 miles southeast of Stockholm and is easily accessible by plane or ferry from the mainland. Gotland is a popular summer coastal location but is worth a visit at any time of year with activities, attractions and impressive natural spectacles.

An endless array of attractions make Gotland the perfect holiday destination. One national park and over 100 nature reserves create an intense experience of the true beauty of nature as dramatic cliffs, rare birds, bogs and marshes are protected for future generations.

UNESCO has recognised the capital of Gotland, Visby, as a world heritage site. Visby was an important Viking centre between the 12th and 14th centuries and is the best-preserved fortified commercial city in northern Europe.

Sandy beaches, boat tours, cycle rental / tours, historic guided tours, fossil safaris, glass blowing, horse adventures, underground caves, fascinating rock stacks, steam trains, canoeing / kayaking and sea fishing are just some of the entertaining features of Gotland.

Accommodation

NOFO Hotel - Stockholm

An excellent small and personal award winning hotel located in a listed building from 1780 and on the fashionable island of Södermalm. This is where the locals live. Just 10 mins walk from the centrally located Gamla Stan (Old Town) and 2 mins from the nearest underground station at Medborgarplatsen.

Folkungagatan is a street with a laid back atmosphere on Södermalm. This has been the focal point for artisan, cool and creative design, shops and music. Split into 2 areas, SOFO (south of Folkungagatan) and NOFO (north of Folkungagatan) this is a great location from which to experience the real Stockholm.

We recommend an upgrade to Superior Rooms where possible.

Wisby Hotel, Visby - Gotland

Click on the image for more photos.

Wisby Hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Visby so exploring is a piece of cake! The centre of Visby is protected from intruders by the medieval city walls, no longer required but a symbol of the history and culture that Visby has to offer. The Hotel was completely refurbished in 2007 maintaining the historical heritage in a modern and comfortable environment.

The airport is just 4km from the city centre, the harbour and ferry terminal are just a short walk away and the beach is just a couple of minutes’ stroll. The tourist information centre, the main point of contact for activities and excursions, is located by the harbour.
