Destination Gotland is responsible for one of Sweden’s most important transport routes – the sea link between Gotland and the Swedish mainland, representing one of the most modern maritime transport systems in Europe. Our four high-speed ferries create enable passengers and cargo to travel efficiently between Gotland and the mainland on the Visby – Nynäshamn or Visby – Oskarshamn routes. We also operate the Visby – Västervik route during the summer months.
Since 1998, Destination Gotland runs the Gotland service. The formal contract is with the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket), but in many ways our mandate also comes from Gotland’s own community. We currently offer significantly greater capacity and service frequency than the agreement with the Transport Administration requires. We see it as our responsibility to support the island’s development by creating opportunities for everyone who wants to travel to and from our island.
A smooth service with high capacity and frequent departures is essential in enabling people to work, stay and live on Gotland, and we are proud to be involved in paving the way for the community and Gotland’s development.
