Discover one of the most picturesque destinations in Sweden, as you tour the largest island in the Baltic Sea – Gotland. This super-scenic road trip takes in majestic seascapes, pretty beaches and secluded swimming spots as you venture out to explore its outlying islands, including the idyllic fishing villages of Faro. It's no surprise that the region is a favourite among the country's A-list. There's also plenty of historical intrigue, ranging from Viking ruins to prehistoric sites and medieval churches. It all concludes with a dose of the cosmopolitan, best tasted in the bars and restaurants of Stockholm.

Day by day itinerary

  • Days 1-3 » UK/Gotland

    Flying out to the Hanseatic city of Visby, you'll pick up your hire car at the airport to make the short drive to your quaint accommodation. Located right in the centre of the old quarter, you'll have all of Visby's historic delights on your doorstep, with its city walls, cathedral and medieval architecture particular highlights. You'll also want to make use of your hire car to explore further afield, with the rest of the island given over to one giant nature reserve of  heritage hamlets and grassy meadows. Be sure to also hop onto the free ferry to next-door Faro. Here, you'll be able to marvel at the towering sea stacks, reminiscent of  the famous stone moai of Easter Island.

    Stay: Hotel Slottsbacken, Visby, Gotland

    Meals: Breakfast

  • Days 4-5 » Stockholm

    After dropping off your hire car at Visby's airport, board your flight on to the Swedish capital. You'll be staying in one of its finest hotels, an 18th-century masterpiece of chandeliers, high ceilings and superb buffet breakfasts. Of course, you'll also want to head out and exploring, wandering the narrow cobbled streets of the city's Gamla Stan old town. Here, buildings are resplendent in various hues of gold, housing everything from palaces to art museums. For something of the contemporary instead, make for Stockholm's fantastic restaurant and design scene.
