Road trip to Fårö

After arriving in Visby on Saturday, we spent the rest of the day mostly recovering from the strains of the overnight leg from Nynäshamn. On Sunday, it was time to start an island tour. My brother's family had arrived in Visby already on Friday with a Destination Gotland ferry, so on Sunday we rented a car and joined them on a road trip to the beautiful Fårö island, located northeast from Gotland. The distance between the islands is less than a mile, and there is a frequent ferry connection.

We toured mostly the same places on Fårö as we did three years earlier in 2010. However, for Minna this was the first time on Fårö (or on Gotland in general). Furthermore, as this small island is so great, I do not mind coming back again and again.

Here are some photos from our trip to Fårö:

which are limestone formations caused by erosion.

  1. Thanks for these lovely photos! Gotland is the destination of my dreams - so some day we will be sailing there too.

    1. Thanks, (as you probably know) we can warmly recommend Gotland and Fårö – these islands could very well be located somewhere in the Mediterrenean. We are hoping to check out a couple of more (new) harbours on way back home.
