Travel with sustainable horsepower
A calash was used to transport the members and equipment of Carl Linneaus expeditions as it traveled through Skåne during the summer of 1749. He had learned to travel light and knew from experience that his party of followers and assistants should not be too large.

On the other hand, locals residants provided guides and sources of information. In return they could enjoy the teachings of Linneaus. By using Linneaus own notations it is possible to visit the places Linneaus once studied. The original manuscripts belong to the Linnaean Society of London.Carl Linneaus crossed the bridge over Getabäck into Skåne at Loshult. The first night he stayed at the Sinclarsholm Manor house dated 1626. Two month later he left Skåne with a lot of love for the county with the mild climate and nice people.
Now we celebrate his 300th years birthday with the unique opportunity to recreate the atmosphere of The Linnaus expedition.
