Sea, soil, soul – beauty of the northern spring

Publicerad 28 feb 2023

Northern Gotland is known for its rugged and barren landscape, characterized by rocky cliffs, open horizons, and sparse vegetation. This harsh natural environment has played a significant role in shaping the region’s culture and history.

The region has inspired many artists, including the world-renowned filmmaker Ingmar Bergman who lived and worked on the island of Fårö where he used the landscape as a backdrop. The region’s stark beauty also draws many visitors seeking a unique and unforgettable experience.

The northern part of Gotland is home to some of the best sea trout fishing in Sweden, making it a popular destination for fishing enthusiasts. If you are fortunate, you can spot majestic sea eagles soaring high above the rugged cliffs.

The region is also famous for its raukar, towering limestone rock formations, that can be found along the coastline. These ancient natural sculptures were formed over millions of years and have become an iconic symbol of the island.

For those looking to explore the region a bicycle or bus safari is a popular option. The many restaurants welcome food lovers to indulge in a variety of local delicacies.
