Sandqvist getaway:

FURILLEN, GOTLAND

Photography: Sarah Lönn, Sandqvist Art Director



Amidst the Baltic Sea there is a Swedish island with unique geography, vegetation and history. Gotland has always astonished its visitors, and was one of the most important provinces during the Viking Era, being the centre of trade for the Baltic region. In the north eastern corner of the island lies the remote peninsula of Furillen, still relatively unknown to many tourists. Beautiful limestone structures stand firmly beside the deserted fields and vast white beaches. Add the ruins of an old gravel quarry to the mix and it will leave you feeling like you’re in a completely different world.
