Fårö, Gotland

Amazing hidden jewel in Sweden. Lots of wonderful places to visit, places to see, beaches to relax on and cafes to sample the wonderful food. I can't recommend this place enough :)

...breath taking. We got there late afternoon...after6 pm. We got both blue sky then sunset. Amazing place. Air is so so fresh. Don't get misled thinking it's just beach with rocks. There's plenty green by it too. I loved it. We 'll definitely be back there to spend a whole day next summer as now it's impossible to get accommodation... More

Fårö is a small island north of the bigger island Gotland. It takes only a few moments to sail to the island, from Gotland and the ferry is free of charge. It takes 3 hours to sail from the mainland to Gotland, and you can sail from 2 cities Oskarshamn or Nynäs. You will have to book the ferry in... More

Faro island is a 15 minute free ferry from Gotland Island off the east coast of Sweden. It is so beautiful and serene you will be happy you made the effort. The villages are all unique and boast beautiful, ancient churches. The Faro church where Ingmar Bergman is buried has a stunning view of the sea. Highly recommend.

I absolutely love Fårö. My husband's parents live on Gotland, and Fårö is a short drive north, then a ferry ride across a sound (car goes on ferry, 10 minutes, free). We saw the Bergman museum, need no more than an hour there. Then drove through countryside, had a lovely lunch at Ebbe's, then went to look at the shoreline... More

Spent an afternoon on mopeds exploring the island with my girlfriend. She's from Sweden and had been there before. The standing rocks along the coast where amazing. I'd never seen the like before. Stopped on the way back to the ferry for a bite at a little restaurant that's only open fir a fees hours around dinner. Great food good... More

Fårø - the small island close to Gotland is where Ingmar Bergman made his most famuos films. A very nice and informativemuseum give you a good view into the fanous swedes life and work. And much so also Liv Ullmans. If you go there, bring your bicykle and let your car stay at Gotland. A very beautiful and easy trip... More

Fårö is a small island just off north of the island of Gotland. You can access the Island by the free ferry at Farosund. The Ferry leaves about every half hour, if you are leaving or arriving on the island very late you can make a reservation. This is a rural island but well worth the visit if you are... More

Spended a day in Bergman´s Faro yesterday and what an experience. Now I understand why he choose this island to be his home. A pleasure for mind and soul. Beautiful landscapes, untouched nature, serene and peaceful. Will return very soon to this amazing place.

We took a car ride from Visby to Fårö on an almost sunny day in January. We sighted a milk truck on the way to the Fårösund ferry, so we knew we were on schedule. The ferry leaves at half an hour intervals most of the time, so if you miss it there will be just enough time to have... More
