• Gotland's remote nature makes it the perfect honeymoon spot

    2010-07-29

    The isle of Gotland is an up-and-coming vacation destination located 60 miles off the coast of Sweden. While once virtually uninhabited, the island has drawn a mix of those attracted to the region's natural beauty and those looking to live it up at the island's festivals.

    According to the New York Times, the island's seclusion has made it popular with Stockholm residents looking to get away. But newlyweds who wish to do the same will find a lot to love about Gotland's quiet way of live, scenic beauty, and stunning beaches.

    Gotland hosts a number of festivals, such as Stockholmsveckan, a celebration centered around drinking champagne. Its also become quite the getaway for Stockholm residents, thanks to a string of bars and nightclubs littered around the island.

    But most are drawn to the isle's stunning natural vistas. Gotland is the perfect honeymoon spot for couples who enjoy nature. Many of the island's small luxury hotels are situated along the coast or in a comparably scenic locale. The Djupvik Hotel, for example, sets up lounge chairs in a grassy field overlooking the coast. At Fabriken Furillen, couples may want to rent one of four "hermit huts," which are set up far away from the more civilized areas on the island, in order to allow for privacy and natural beauty.

    If any newlywed couples are film buffs, they might have an idea of what Gotland looks like, as Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman used the nearby island of Faro as a setting in many of his films.
