Itinerary

UNESCO world cultural heritage Visby welcomes you with many places of interest as well as an impressive city wall. Visit one of the numerous, exquisite restaurants and try a delicious lamb dish or fresh fish and finish with a typical Gotlandic saffron pancake with red berries and whipped cream.

Get to know the island from its inside! The 400 million years old Lummelunda cave can be visited during a guided tour (not included). Shorty afterwards, the “Jungfrun”, with its 27m the highest limestone rauk on Gotland is awaiting you, just before you reach the coast of Kappelshamn. Per transfer (ca. 35 km) you continue in direction Fårösund and your hotel. 

Today you explore Fårö with its Langhammars nature reserve. The area contains some of the most impressive limestone pillars, also known as Rauk. They dominate the barren landscape with more than 10m high pillars. The island was also residence of famous director Ingmar Bergman, the Bergman center provides interesting insights into the artistic success and life of the director. 

After breakfast a first stop should be made in Bunge to see the open air museum. It gives interesting insights into the Gotlandic life of earlier times. Today’s destination is the former trading town Slite, its port was important in the Viking Age.

Extensive sandy beaches, rauk fields and small, picturesque villages are coining this part of the island. A short detour leads you to Grynge, one of the most beautiful and preserved fishing villages. 20 beach sheds from the 18th and 19th century are lined up there in a row.

The South of Gotland is the most fruitful area, its landscape is diversified and beautiful. 

Today you cycle down to the Southern tip to see Hoburgsgubben, one of the most popular rauks, located in nature reserve Husrygg. Additionally you will be rewarded with stunning views over the sea.

From Burgsvik your bike route leads you to the West Coast of the island. The small coastal roads are trailing themselves along endless pebble beaches up to Djupvik, past windswept coastal forests and with awesome views onto offshore islands.

Start with a refreshing bath in the sea into your last bike day - Tofta beach is known as best sandy beach at the West Coast. Just before Visby, a stop in nature reserve Högklint is highly recommended, with stunning views onto the Baltic sea and Visby, the final destination of your round trip.

After breakfast your bike tour ends. We are happy to extend your holidays with extra nights in Visby.
