Pedal a rail-trolley

Pedal your way through the countryside on a long-disused railway. From a couple of hours to a whole day.

Continue northward to Håkansbol where you;ll find the museum called Löfbergs Handelsmuseum. Return trip between Konsterud-Håkansbol takes about 3-4 hours (9,5 km).
You can also make a long trip and pedal 60 km all the way from Ängebäck (in Degerfors) to Gullspång and further on another railway called Torvedsbanan.
