Turer

The bicycle tours in the movie-landscape runs through a hilly part of Småland. Relax, step off your bicycle and walk up the hills to enjoy the view before you jump on your bicycle and roll down. In basket biking, it is all about who experienced the most along the path, not who was first in goal.

You who wants as few hills as possible should choose Mariannelundsturen. You who wants to be challenged as the most in the shortest distance should try Katthultsturen. More info under each tour!

Bullerbyturen (12,7 km)

Our shortest trip. The trip to Bullerbyn starts with flat bicycling along Åsjöarna and Silverån to Emarps Kvarn where you go left towards Hamphorva and Bullerbyn. Here it is perfectly fine to step off your bicycle and walk. Stay a while in the real Bullerbyn before turning towards Krogstorp and then taking left at Stolparp which allows for an easy route to Spillhammarbadet and back to Filmbyn Småland, Mariannelund. Be careful on the way down, sometimes it is very steep!

Katthultsturen (24,2 km)

Our most challenging trip in length and a high percentage of height curves.

Silvervägen takes you past Trollegata where the adventurer Göran Kropp learned to climb. You will also pass Hulta Såg where Anton and Alma Svenssons party-guests vainly searched for a missing Emil. When you get past the hill before Kåremåla a beautiful and pleasant biking trip awaits towards Rumskulla, partly along Sevededalen, before you locate yourself in the almost fairytale looking landscape up towards Katthult. On the way back you pass Skuru, where Emil surprised gökottan with “Smålands Husarer går till attack” before you head back to Källeberg and get to enjoy the view and recently mentioned hill from a more pleasant view.
