Below is an itinerary for this package:
Season: June 1 - September 15
VisbyRight next to Visby's well-preserved ring wall from the 1200th century is Best Western Solhem Hotell. Here you live centrally with the medieval cobbled streets and the historic buildings just around the corner. At the same time, you feel the tranquility of beautiful natural surroundings and the proximity of the sea. Use the day to stroll around and breathe in Visby's atmosphere. Find a cozy restaurant and enjoy Gotland specialties such as lamb, saffron pancakes, salmon berries and much more.
Visby - Lummelunda Caves - Halls Fiskeläge - Lärbro (cycling 66 km)The bike ride goes from Visby north with the ring wall close to you on your right side and the sea right next to you on your left side. The trip goes on car-free cycle paths along the sea along the "Gotlandsleden" to the Lummelunda caves. We recommend a guided tour, which takes you 400 million years back in time. Strange fossils and beautiful stalactite formations await here. Also take the opportunity to see the big water wheel and look around at the old buildings. Continue the trip north along the Gotlandsleden to today's destination Lärbro. Feel free to cycle to Hall's fishing village on the northern tip, well worth the effort. Here you will find an idyllic fishing village with a chapel from the 1600th century, a protected harbor and with impressive views from the lighthouse.
Lärbro - Bläse - Bästeträsk - Fårösund - Fårögården (Sudersand) cycling 51 kmToday's destination is Fårö-Ljuset and raukarnas ö. Follow Gotlandsleden north. From Bläse you can take the road along Stenkusten. This part offers the wild, rocky and wildly tormented landscape characteristic of Gotland. There are also cool rauk areas and cozy fishing villages. Visit the Bläse Industrial Museum, make a stop for swimming in the Blue Lagoon or just enjoy the sight of the turquoise blue water in the water-filled limestone quarry. At Fårösund, a short ferry ride across Fårösundet awaits before you arrive at Fårögården by Sudersand. The farm also houses Restaurant Fårögården, which serves delicious Gotland Mediterranean food. On the bicycle saddle you can now explore this enchanting island with its barren nature, its rauk areas, beaches and the special light and tranquility. Dinner is enjoyed in the courtyard in a relaxing atmosphere.
Fårö (optional cycle distance)Enjoy your cycling holiday on Gotland - The sun and the island of the winds. The day is for exciting discoveries and new experiences. Cycle on the winding roads at a comfortable pace and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Raukom areas well worth a visit are Gamlehamn, Digerhuvud and Langhammars.

Feel free to visit Fårö Lighthouse which is located furthest east on Fårö. Dinner is enjoyed in a relaxing Faroese spirit.
Fårö - Slite (bike ride 53 km)To leave Fårö, you have to go back by ferry to Fårösund and cycle on to Slite Strandby, which is today's destination. If you have not had time to visit the Bergmans Center on Fårö, maybe a stop before the ferry departs is a good idea. If you want to discover something very different, you should cycle to Bungenäs. The trendiest destination in Sweden? The sea is present everywhere and next to old buildings, industrial premises and remains from a lime quarry there are lagoon-like bodies of water that change into light green shades. Also take the opportunity to visit the Bunge Open Air Museum. In Slite Strandby, accommodation and dinner await. You have free access to the pool and sauna, can be nice after a long day of cycling.
