My World BannerLifecruiser photo Gotland, Fårö, Langhammar Rauk Seastack

This is my absolute favorite rauk (sea stack) at Langhammar at Fårö, a small island above Gotland outside Sweden’s east coast in the Baltic Sea. You can see how big it is if you see the person to the lower right of the sea stack.

The Langhammar peninsula are a nature reserve on north-western Fårö with a rocky shoreline with sea stacks, many meter high limestone rocks sculpted by nature. The surrounding landscape has remained untouched since the 17th century.

There are more sea stack areas around and one called Digerhuvud is the biggest of them: 3,5 km long, which is the biggest in Sweden. It’s the long shoreline to the west of Langhammar.

The sunsets are unbelievable in these areas. We have our own hiding place down there, where we can sit together and watch the sun go down – it’s so romantic….

I long for the summer again. I don’t want the winter. We have rain in Stockholm today again. *heavy sigh*

    I must visit Fårö some day! A far cry from my “natural habitat” just south of the Sahara desert… And with my roots set on the Swedish & Norwegian West Coasts, there is often very little time to go sightseeing in one’s mother’s home country! But I will keep in mind that Fårö is an intriguing place. Have you guys been to West Africa?

    Warm greetings from Niger,

    PS: Too bad Niger is not accessible by sea, or I could invite you over for a Swedish fika!

    Wow, those rocks are amazing. I’d love to see them. Isn’t Mother Nature a great old girl with the fabulous things she gives us to visit.

    I understand how you feel…I don’t like winter either and I’m always glad when the days get longer and the weather gets warmer.

    Mark H said:

    What weird statues. Nature does amazing things at time. In the west of Australia, there is a place called The Pinnacles which also are strange rock statues in the middle of a desert that also offer fantastic sunsets. I have a few photos undera post on my blog if you are interested (just search under Australia).
