Getting to Visby
We would like to stress that Gotland is an island in the Baltic Sea, and it will take some extra time to travel to Gotland from the Swedish mainland. The majority of people travelling to Gotland take one of Destination Gotland’s high speed ferries. These ferries depart from Nynäshamn and Oskarshamn regularly, and travel time is approximately three hours. It is recommended to book and pay in advance. For more information, including ferry schedules and prices, please visit: Destination Gotland.
If you arrive at one of the airports in or around Stockholm, catch a bus or train to Stockholm’s Central Railway Station. From here, you can take a bus or commuter train to Nynäshamn. The boat coaches, Flygbussarna, will take you directly from Cityterminalen, Stockholm's bus station, to the ferry terminal in Nynäshamn for SEK 129. Estimated time for the transfer from airport to the ferry terminal is minimum 1.5-2 hours. For details please refer to Flygbussarna.
