These breathtaking cliffs are located just outside of Visby. You don't need to go far to have an incredible experience.

Högklint is one of the major cliffs located on the coast to the south of Visby. From a several hundred feet in the air, you can view the Baltic Sea in her fullness. To get there, use a GPS to find it. There are brown signs indicating which direction to go as you get closer. Park at the trailhead and take the short path to the cliff. Feel free to hike as far down the coast as you want. There are some stairs to go to a secondary ledge 50 or so feet below Högklint. Makes for a beautiful sunset. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
