WHAT YOU GET

  • Knowledge of the history of the district and exciting geology
  • Small groups for a more exclusive experience
  • Organic refreshments in a scenic location
  • Fresh air and time to be together
  • Small-scale eco-tourism that protects the local countryside

HOW IT WORKS

We follow the noticeable traces of what happened in the area millions of years before us. We cycle through small typical villages and bike on gravel roads, beyond the big roads. Along the way we visit the ceramic factory of Nittsjö, one of Sweden’s oldest craft companies. We also stop by at the small but fossil-rich Amtjärnsbrottet. Here we can see the evidences of how the area once lay on the bottom of the ocean. Half way we stop at a scenic location to grab something to eat. During the day we cycle about 2 miles, all in a pleasant pace with several stops here and there.
