Roadtrip: Visingsö (Sweden)

We took our car and we drove from Stockholm down to Visingsö. I brought my Canon G16 with me and I took some low-key photographs capturing the atmosphere of this amazing place.

Visingsö is an island in the southern half of Lake Vättern in Sweden.

Visingsö lies 30 kilometres (19 miles) north of the city Jönköping and 6 kilometres (3.7 miles) west of Gränna from which two car ferries connect the island. The island is 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) long and 3 kilometres (1.9 miles) wide, with a total area of 24 square kilometres (9.3 square miles).

According to legend, a giant named Vist created Visingsö by throwing a lump of soil into the lake so that his wife could use it to step over the lake.
