STONE CUTTERS' HERITAGE aka Stenhuggaren - bike ride with guide (Book online for best price)

Date: Monday 4 sep 2017 - Monday 25 Sep 2017

The BIG ICE, sea resort visitors, Otto von Bismarck, Mrs. Calla Curman and countless stonemasons have all had an impact on Stångehuvud and Lysekil. On this tour you will learn about how those people affected this area in the past and what it looks like today. 

The granite, the sea and the people. Geology, erosion and stone cutting industry.

Cruising with our bikes at a leisurely pace between abandoned quarries and pristine granite slabs will take us to central Lysekil city and out to the nature reserve Stångehuvud.
We visit locations and geological formations that "tells" the story of Bohusgranite and the importance of the stone industry to Lysekil and Bohuslän.
Ride with a guide, and experience more

The bikes take us quickly and effortlessly between different environments. The guide sets world history events in relation to its impact on the stonemasonry industry and brings to life the lives of the stonecutters and their families.
