A beautiful number of places to visit alongside the canal, or if you want to make it your vacation destination; Incredibly peaceful and quaint boat trip along the entire stretch.

Going by chartered boat or by your own vessel... Gota Kanal will reward you with the smooth, slow boating in beautiful surroundings. To move through the level ports is exciting and there are several nice stops on the way.

Göta kanal is only a canal of water stream running through Sweden. Maybe you had a hotel in mind?
