Töreboda - Sjötorp - Töreboda (boat trip about 5 hours)Today it's time to experience Sweden's largest construction project from one of the traditional canal boats M / S Bellevue. The boat departs from Töreboda at 10.30 and ends in Sjötorp, where the Göta Canal flows into Lake Vänern. The first locks are soon passed in Hajstorp and a total of 16 locks are passed on the way to Sjötorp. Thanks to the canal, Sjötorp's community has grown up and there are no less than 8 locks here. With the help of the locks, the canal rises 20 meters above the surface of Lake Vänern. Göt a canal flows through a forest landscape towards open lands, where it is often at a higher level than the surrounding fields. On the side embankments, leafy avenues are planted, which contributes to the canal area's unique landscape. During the boat cruise on M / S Bellevue, lunch is served while the captain guides you through the Göta Canal's history and nature experiences. The boat advances at a speed of 5 knots, so just sit back and enjoy one of Sweden's most famous buildings. The day ends with dinner and overnight in Töreboda.
