We have shared biogas cars available for use. You can ask us to pick you up at the ferry, but please let us know in advance. Prices are per km driven, and a pickup at the ferry is usually around 70 SEK.

From Visby you need to take Bus 10 in the direction Klintehamn-Burgsvik. Bus stop is just outside the ferry terminal*. Check the bus schedule in advance. Bus ride costs 30-35 SEK and can usually be paid only in cash on-board. Currently, there are COVID-19 measures in place which imply that you need to buy your bus ticket in advance. We recommend using the mobile app Ridango to buy a ticket. Get off at “Suderbys 1” (you should press STOP button when the name appears on the screen as the next stop). Walk another 250 meters in the same direction as the bus, along the bicycle path. You will see a barn with the Suderbyn sign close to the road. Here we are!
