Göta Canal stretches between Mem at the Baltic Sea to Sjötorp in lake Vänern. The canal’s entire length is 190 km, of which 87 km are dug by hand. The canal with 58 locks connects the natural lake system. After the lake Vänern the canal system continues with Trollhätte Canal and Göta River to Gothenburg, which all together creates a beautiful waterway between Sweden’s east and west coast. Our boats are rented from and to Motala and you have three routs that you can choose on read the page “Routs” for more information.
