Rotera telefonen! För att kunna använda vår bokning på små skärmar behöver du hålla telefonen i landskapsläge.

Beautiful lakes and deep forests

From Virserum you cycle towards Åseda which is 27 km south of Virserum. The first thing you will see are the beautiful lakes that the railway runs alongside for the first five kilometres down to Mosstorp station.

From Mosstorp you enter the deep Småland woods, far from the nearest motor road. Triabo is located half way and it also a popular rest stop with swings and benches etc.

The cycle route continues up towards the uplands and the station village Hultanäs. The station building has been renovated by the association and returned to its 50s design with the classic ticket office and post office boxes. Please have a look in through the waiting room door.

A short while after Hultanäs you will reach the highest point of the railway and find yourself 125 metres higher up than at the start in Virserum. This also means that you will pedal back home towards Virserum with ease as there is a light descending gradient large parts of the way home.

A few words from previous visitors:

Two well-preserved stations where the station area in Virserum with its old Pressbyrån kiosk stands out. It was also fun to see the old functional level crossing in Triabo.

No problems renting a trolley in the off-season. Good service.

Very beautiful and fun for the whole family.
