Then you'll bike out of town and north along the sea and after 1.5 hours you will reach theLummelunda Cave and it's time eating your lunch-parcel. There are guided tours around the cave every hour that are very interesting as you will travel 400 millions years back in time. There are also a big water wheel and other old buildings. On your way back to Visby, we recommend a visit at Krysmyntagården - a herb-garden with a shop and a café, where you can take a break and relax for a while.
