Gotland is an island of contrasts. A tour of the island shows the changes in nature and architectures.  Renowned for its inviting sandy beaches, savannah-like landscapes, and juniper-clad, big limestone formations (stacks) along some of the coast and spectacular sunrises. Gotland also has many fine examples of medieval churches that still are in use.
The capital of the island is Visby. It’s a medieval town with a stone-wall built in the late 13th century. The wall is almost 3500 meters long and encircles the old houses, churches and cobblestoned street-system.
Board your coach, witch first will take you to the “old habour”, Almedalen. Today it’s a park with a pond, for you to enjoy the greenery and the view of the medieval town of Visby.
Then the coach will drive you through the agriculture district east and south of Visby. Stops for a visit at one of the many medieval countryside churches. Next the coach will take you further southwest to the coast of Ekstakusten and a stops for a visit at the medieval fishing village Kronvalls.  A drive along the cobblestone shore, with a marvelous view of the sea and the 2 “Bird islands” Karls Islands - the Karls Islands are 2 small islands where the birdlife are very rich and rare.

The tour will drive to Fröjel and the imposing burial place – Gannarve Skeppsättning, a stone-setting from the Bronze Age ( 1100 – 500 BC). The grave consists of stones standing on their edge in the form of a ship. It was believed that the metaphor ship was to carry the departed chieftains on their voyage to eternity. The surrounding view along the coast is magnificent and you can also watch the Karls Islands. The coach will continue driving north along the coast and stops at Stelor Hotel & Restaurant – a newly restored farm from the 18th century - for a lunch break with coffee/tea and a lunch-sandwich.

Before the coach takes you back to Visby, you will stop at the massive limestone cliffs at Högklint . From Högklint you will be admiring the stunning view over the coastline of Gotland and Visby at the north. So don´t forget to take a picture of your cruise-ship!
