Passenger boat M/S Bellevue, Göta Canal

Lyrestad, Mariestad

The M/S Bellevue sails the Göta Canal both ways between Sjötorp-Töreboda. Feast your eyes on the ancient trees, lovely buildings, peacefully grazing cattle and all the other typical sights of the Swedish countryside.

A particular attraction for the visitors to the area is the Göta Canal, of which the Västergötland section starts at Sjötorp.

You will find fun activities, sights, god food and service all along the canal. All nestled into our beautiful countryside and the unique canal atmosphere.
