Solvang Trolley, Wine Tasting and Weddings

The Solvang Trolley, also known as The Honen ("The Hen" in Danish), was introduced when Axel Nielsen hired Chris Kleebo to build a motorized, Danish-style Streetcar in 1964 that would pick up shoppers from the Solvang Lutheran Home to take them to Nielsen's Market, and would also deliver groceries around the Santa Ynez Valley. In 1973, H.H.H. Rasmussen took over the trolley and made it available to Solvang visitors, giving tours of the Danish town pulled by two horses.

Throughout the years, the company has grown to offer a variety of horse-drawn carriage services appropriate for almost any occasion. We offer a quaint, charming way to enjoy the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley that is relaxing, and in many ways, romantic. We are also available for various private events on location throughout the Santa Barbara County.
