For many Swedes, nothing signifies summer more than the island of Gotland.

sports and a healthy lifestyle.
Many Swedes have at some point in their lives enjoyed a cycling holiday on Gotland, a tradition that is cherished and sustained at GSA.
“We offer great opportunities both for those who prefer some leisurely cycling on the roads around here and for those who are more into high-intensity off-road cycling,” says Ringvall.
Gotland being an island, all things water sports are naturally a vital part of GSA – everything from kayaking to sailing and, of course, swimming.
“We have a swimming pool here, but, as expected, as we’re located right next to a long sandy beach, heading straight for the sea is also a popular option,”
Ringvall continues. In addition to cycling and water sports, the sports options are almost endless.
There are tennis courts, ice hockey rinks and an 18-hole golf course, to mention a few.
