Travel back to medieval times on a journey that takes you into the Swedish countryside and through the Hanseatic heart of Visby. Begin with a scenic drive to the fishing village of Lickershamn. Upon reaching the coastline, you'll notice oddly shaped limestone "rauks", formations that have been carved over the ages by the forces of nature.
