Walk the Göta Canal and Lake Roxen


A lovely adventure for those of you who like to walk historic paths. You will eat well and sleep well at Kapten Bille's in Norsholm.

Day 1

You arrive around 14.00, check into your room. Of course before we send you out on your walk, we make sure you have something good in your rucksack. The walk takes about 2.5 hours along the banks of Lake Roxen. You will pass several remains from the Iron Age and from Bishop Brask's time. From Tångstadborgen there is a fantastic view over Lake Roxen, in other words a great place to picnic.

When you get back there is time to take it easy and prepare to enjoy a delicious 3-course menu composed by Kaptain Bille. You will have a good night's sleep in one of our cosy rooms.

Day 2

After a lovely leisurely breakfast you will collect a packed lunch for your rucksack before the day's tour along the Göta Canal. You return to Kaptain Bille's in good time for afternoon tea when his famous Apple Strudel will be served before it is time to go home.
