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.

Today you 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. 

You continue your tour in direction Bunge, where the museum is worth a visit. The biggest open air museum on Gotland gives great insights into the Gotlandic farming life of earlier times. Today's destination is former trading town Slite, the third-largest village on the island. Slite was an important port on the East Coast in the Viking Age. This is documented for example by a burial ground from around 1000 AD and the "Spillings hoard", the world's largest Viking silver treasure found in a field northwest of Slite. 

After breakfast the public bus brings you back to Visby in less than an hour. Spend the rest of the day to explore the UNESCO world cultural heritage with its numerous medieval buildings. Visit for example Almedalen, the former harbour of the city, stroll through Strandgatan, the main street with graceful houses or walk along the 3,5 km long medieval city wall. Väktargång, one tower of the wall can be climbed and offers wonderful views. 

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