Själjö Bageriet Here’s where to come for a de­li­cious cin­na­mon brioche. In 2010, Claes, Anna and their two daugh­ters left Stock­holm to set­tle in Got­land and live their two pas­sions – surf­ing and rid­ing – to the full. Claes and two friends later opened Själjö Bageriet, which has since be­come some­thing of an in­sti­tu­tion. sjal­sobageri.se

Villa Villekulla Pippi Långstrump (aka Pippi Long­stock­ing) is a quite a phe­nom­e­non in Swe­den: the main char­ac­ter in Astrid Lind­gren’s orig­i­nal books is a red-haired lit­tle girl who lives with­out her par­ents and can lift her horse sin­gle-handed and so be­came one of the sym­bols of strong women in the 1960s. Ten min­utes away from Visby, the pink and yel­low wooden house used in the 1969 tele­vi­sion series is open to vis­i­tors. Full of fun sur­prises for young fans. kneipp­byn.se Sur­flo­giet A quar­ter of an hour from Visby, Tofta is one of the is­land’s most pop­u­lar beaches: three kilo­me­tres of fine sand and a host of ac­tiv­i­ties to burn off ex­tra en­ergy: kitesurf­ing, pad­dle­board­ing and surf­ing (waves no taller than 1.5 me­tres). Keep your eyes skinned and you may see the two teenage models from our fash­ion shoot, Hedda and Greta, crest the waves! sur­flo­giet.se Lilla Bjers Lilla Bjers farm, seven kilo­me­tres south of Visby, pro­poses a 100% green, gas­tro­nomic menu, us­ing pro­duce grown on the farm. With a vast glasshouse bathed in sun­light and grounds dot­ted with flow­ers for chil­dren to run about on, it is an idyl­lic spot. lil­l­ab­jers.se
