We woke early this morning to catch the pendeltorg to Nynäshamn to board the ferry to Gotland! The sun is shining and I am excited to see a new part of Sweden. Gotland is an island in the Baltic Sea off the east coast. We are traveling there via a "fast" ferry traveling at about 27 knots per hour. We departed at 10:55 and will arrive a 14:20 …

TravelPod Member ReviewsVisby Hamnhotell
We were here on a weekend package and our room was fine, clean and functional. A typical Swedish breakfast buffet was included. Unfortunately, as vegans, most of the options were not good for us.
