Karlskrona to Visby (via the island of Öland)

Approximately 145 NM

The Island of Gotland is situated North East of Karlskrona, approx. 55 NM off the Swedish coast. Gotland is famous for its high coastline and the impressive limestone formations, called “Rauks”.

The island’s capital, Visby, was first founded in 1203. Visby is often called “the town of roses and ruins” because of the surrounding ruins and the old houses. The city is still surrounded by the old city wall, which used to protect the city during its days as a Hanseatic trading centre. Visby is today one of the main jet set summer resorts in Sweden. It offers a combination of first class entertainment and dining, beautiful beaches and spectacular scenery.

During the second week of July each year, the picturesque 11th century town turns into a top party destination when “Stockholm week” is in town.
