Why try kayaking,
and what is Bulverket?

In the shallow Tingstäde träsk, with a maximum depth of 1.7 meters, you are always close to solid ground. You will have opportunities to safetly familiarize yourself with a real sea kayak, or to take the whole family out on an adventure.

Tingstäde träsk, the second largest lake on Gotland, also conceals the remains of a remarkable wooden fortress from the 1130s. Originally, the fortress consisted of a square platform where each side measured 170 metres. The Bulverket is now scattered as large piles of timber at the bottom of the lake, but can be seen from the surface of the water and from the air above.

The lake is situated alongside the highway to Fårösund on northern Gotland.
