Göta Canal is one of the most exciting constructions in Sweden. It took 22 years to complete the canal, which was inaugurated on September 26, 1832. Its western section, between Sjötorp by Lake Vänern and Karlsborg by Lake Vättern, has 21 locks, is 65.3 km long and passes through beautiful Lake Viken.
Experience the relaxing pace along Göta Canal on a bike. The canal is lined by large leafy trees and winds through forests and open landscapes. The cycling route runs along the banks of the canal, on the old towpath, which is free of cars and has virtually no hills. The path ascends by some locks. Welcome to a part of our Swedish history!
