Join Lars Howlett (, Kimberly & Jeff Saward ( for an unforgettable journey to the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea as we explore, walk and study a stunning variety of outdoor classical labyrinths. Our home base will be the enchanting village of Visby, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where we will enjoy four-star hotel accommodations June 6-12th (7 days / 6 nights).

Experience a wide variety of labyrinth designs and settings, learn the history of these sacred sites, and walk ancient pathways alone and as a group in a country with more historic labyrinths than anywhere in the world! Your tour guides are a labyrinth designer/builder and expert historians with an in-depth knowledge and love of Gotland, also providing short presentations and workshops to shed light on the evolution and appeal of classical labyrinths as a spiritual practice, fisherman’s tool, and teaching exercise.

We will tour the ancient walled city and visit medieval churches, ruins, and a marvelous museum. Enjoy Swedish island culture and cuisine including smoked salmon and fresh asparagus. See ancient Viking graves and runestones, labyrinth frescoes in medieval churches, windmills, fishing villages, and wool boutiques. We will bid adieu after a group walk Sunday morning, June 12th.
