Cycle in Gotland

Gotlands landscape is attractive for cyclists. You reach nature, culture, history and our fantastic beaches when you cycle on easily cycled roads and paths with bicycles hired at Visby Hyrcykel. The roads pass through a varied and flat landscape. Every part of Gotland is accessible by bicycle. The narrow cobbled streets in Visby are excellently accessible for cyclists. Here are Church ruins, old ware houses, a botanical garden, restaurants, shops and much more within the surrounding Town Wall. Visby Town Wall has been included in UNESCO´s World Heritage list since 1995.

Gotland is the largest island in Sweden,186km long, 50km wide and has a 800km long coastline. The sun shines most of the time in Gotland and is the sunniest holiday destination in Sweden. Visby tops the list of sunniest place in Sweden every year! This island is perfect for a cycling holiday!

Public Access
Public Access is an unwritten law which includes, amongst other things, the following rights:
  • You are allowed to erect a light weight tent for some nights on another persons land as long as you are not too close to the area adjoining a residential house.
  • You are allowed to make a small grill fire with dry twigs and branches that lay on the ground. Think about fire risk and do not build a fire on flat rocks as this can cause cracks.
  • You are allowed to wander freely in woods and countryside, cycle on existing paths and roads, as long as you do not damage vegetation.
  • All motor traffic in terrain is forbidden. You are not allowed to park a caravan wherever you like.
  • You are naturally not allowed to pick protected, rare plants. Most other plants are also most beautiful left where they grow. The natural parks/meadows in Gotland should not be walked upon before the grass has been cut. Be careful not to disturb birds during their nesting period.
Protected bird areas and nature reserves have strict restrictive rules. Further detailed information is available from Länsstyrelsen in Visby. + 46 498-292100 or www.lansstyrelsen.se/gotland
