Discover your inner Indiana Jones and the naturalist within you. This is a bike ride that will get you thinking of distant places where you are likely to find 200 million year old plant fossils. Public education, music, good food, fossil hunting, and nice company are promised! This is a unique opportunity and the number of places is limited.
We start the adventure of getting to know the mining museum in Bjuv and get to know its history during a guided tour. After a knowledgeable and interesting guide, it's time to refill the batteries. There will be a digital lunch concert in Billesholm's National Park with none other than the artist Anna Vild responsible for the music.
When we have eaten, you can choose to hear Hans Wilson tell about the history of the People's Park or go for a guided tour of the Trias Garden with Steve McLoughlin and Vivi Vajda.
Then we cycle through difficult terrain to the open pit where we dig up the ancient treasures that are hiding with the help of shovels and brushes. Fossil hunting is a fun and exciting activity that suits everyone!
