Arrival in Visby
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 lamm 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 direc-tion Fårö and your hotel.
You start with a loop tour to Fårö and nature reserve Langhammars, where most of the impressing limestone rauks are located. More than 10m high, are they dominating the sparse landscape around. Fårö also was residence of well-known regisseur Ingmar Bergman, the Bergman centre is giving interesting insights in the artistic achievements and life of the regisseur. Back on the “main land” the Bunge 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 the former trading town Slite.
Extensive sandy beaches, rauk fields and small, picturesque vil-lages 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 diver-sified and beautiful. Cycle down to the Southern tip (+45 km) and check out 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 destina-tion of your round trip.
You cycle on bike paths (around Visby) and gravel roads, forest tracks and side roads with less traffic. To some extent there are simpler trail conditions with raw gravel and roads with more traffic. Flat tour course
