Routes

This is a description of the routes offered from the 2022 season.

Göta Kanal Charter carefully selects all routes in consultation with Göta and Kinda Kanal company, which are responsible for staff, locks and guest harbors along the canals. The guest harbors have good facilities such as toilets, showers, shore power and are close to grocery stores and restaurants. The electric boats have fixed places for charging during the nights in the harbor after each day travel. The times are approximate and you have possibilities for breaks like lunch, swimming and sights. In the pre- and post-season, the start times are fixed. You have the opportunity to choose the route at the time of your booking or no later than one week before departure.
