During the Nordic Lung Congress in Visby in May 2017 the organisers has asked us at Hansa Incoming to offer a number of excursions.
During your visit we offer the opportunity to a guided city walk on two different occasions the 10th and 12th of May. We will also organise a six hour excursion to the eastern parts of the island we travel there by bus and then go by bicycle on the nicest routes. Read more about the excursions below:
Visby town is a UNESCO world heritage site well known for its medieval character. No matter where you are in the town centre you’ll see remains from past times. Medieval warehouses, the fortification wall, the narrow alleyways and the 13th century cathedral. Not to mention all the ruins still standing to remind us of the glory days when Visby was a major town in the Hanseatic League during the 13th century.
Your guide will meet you in the Almedalen park and will take you on a city tour on foot. This tour incorporates a walk through Visby’s fascinating history, dotted with surprises and, for added fun, enjoyable urban legends and infamous historical characters. We mix the hard facts with stories lesser known to the public. Despite all you might think you know about Visby, we can promise there are more to learn.
Figure out for yourself what is truth and what is myth!
These walks are offered in English, Swedish (Minimum people required: 20, if less people you will be added to the English speaking groups) and Estonian (Minimum people required: 20, if less people you will be added to the English speaking groups).
Price: SEK 200 per person incl. VAT
Östergarn – Where the sun raises.
It might seem unfair to the rest of Gotland, but this is our own favourite part of the island. To us, this is paradise on earth.
We meet in Almedalen to board the coach that takes us to the east side of the island to the parish of Ardre. In Ardre we’ll visit the medieval church, the lamb farmer who will tell us about his more than 300 ewes and how the Gotlandish farmers takes care of the countryside by traditional livestock farming. We’ll also stop-by “Cousin Dan”, the brew master of our traditional beverage, ”Gotlandsdricken” which has been brewed for generations at Gotlandish farms, we will get a taste of both the beverages as well as some cock-and-bull stories. Dan is by the way the man behind all ‘dricke’ served on all our excursions.
At *Cousin Dan” we will be equipped with bikes and helmets and go for a guided bike ride along the stunning coastline countryside. We begin our trip at Ardre church where we cycle east along back roads until we get to the east coast and the Baltic Sea. Not only will we see and enjoy the views over the unbroken horizon, we’ll also get to visit one of the islands most famous sea-stack fields.
When having taken in the sights we take our bikes and head south towards the village of Ljugarn where we will have a late lunch.
After lunch we board the bus again and head back to Visby and Almedalen.
Included in price is; guide (English speaking), coach, bike trailer, bike and helmet, visit to lamb farm, visit and tasting of dricke, coffee break and lunch (non-alcoholic beverage included).
