Slite, Gotland and travel

by Cristagalli28 Online Now May 3, 2007 at 10:29 AM

Hello all!

My name is Aza Derman and I am a graduate archeology student. I am going to Gotland in July and need to book a cabin at Slite and rent a scooter/cycle to get to Klints, where the Viking Exploration Programme is digging.

What is the best way to do this? Slite cabins are not on the gotland tourism site, so I'm not sure if that means there are no spots available.

Also, does anyone know the best way to get from Arlanda airport to Nynashamn to board the ferry to gotland?

And, sorry, third, how far is Ekland from Klints?

Thank you very much for your time!

    The English pages aren't as good as the Swedish ones on the Gotland tourist sites. Here is a Slite campsite with some chalets:

    If you click where it says Kontakt, you can mail them (Epost at the top is where you fill in your own address). However, the telephone numbers above are probably a quicker way to contact them.

    Have you already booked the ferry? July it can be quite hectic. Otherwise you can fly straight from Arlanda...

    If you have set your mind on the ferry, the best way is to go to Stockholm Central station (airport bus is cheaper than Arlanda Express trains) and then catch a local commuter train to Nynäshamn (end stop on that line).

    I cannot find Ekland on the map but if you go to this site you can type in Klints (there are two around Slite and another one on Gotland):

    About 10 kilometres south of Slite is Åminne where there is another camp site and that one has bike rentals:

    You can perhaps ask if the first one I posted also has it.
