Get to Gotland

In order to make your camping adventure reality, you need to get to Gotland. There are two ways to make this happened.

The first options are to take a ferry from either Nynäshamn or Oskarshamn. On the ferry there is room for a car or caravan and if you want you can book a suite. With the ferry, the trip takes about 3 hours.

Another option is by flight. Flying to Gotland takes about 40 minutes from Stockholm but due to small planes, it will limit the amount of camping gear and caravans you could bring.
