Trolley cycling through the meadows and forests of Skåne is a fun adventure for all ages and a great way to see some of the most beautiful parts of its countryside. In the past, the trolleys were used to inspect lines by railway staff. Today these old railways have a new life as trolley cycling tracks. 

Rent a trolley, pack a picnic basket and bring the family on a day trip where everyone can take turns pedalling. Most trips take around 3-4 hours including breaks.  Below are a few places where you can rent:
