Gota Canal cruise Motala!


Experience Motala "Gota Kanal capital" and the channel's steepest flight of locks

M /S Ceres, you will experience a guided tour along a historic part of the canal. We pass several interesting sights along our journey. One example is the Motala workshop, where many classic canal boats seen the light. We also get the chance to see Baltzar von Platen's grave from the right side, the channel page.

During the cruise, which takes about 5 hours, locks us 12 times. We start at. 11:00 Borensberg, the small idyllic the canal society that still lives up the channel the summer. Here are hotels, restaurants and shops within walking distance from the ship.

We glide slowly out over Lake Boren and lunch servedas soon as our chefs are ready, usually about 1 hour after departure. When we harvested Lake Boren including Bridget's Promontory and Castle Ulfåsa it is time to begin the ascent towards Motala this by using locks in Borenshult, which is the channel's steepest and consists of five interconnected locks with a total height difference of more than 15 meters . We pass several landmarks along the canal on its way slowly towards Motala just prior to docking, we pass another gate "association" with the level difference is usually only a few centimeters. Once we have arrived in Motala, we make a stop at about 1 hour. You can then choose to stay on board and just relax on the bridge deck and perhaps take the opportunity to top up your tan with a refreshing beverage in hand. If you want to go ashore so much to see in Motala, recommend warm a visit to Motala Motor Museum where there is something for everyone!

We then leave the harbor of Motala and locks directly into the GotaChannel through the sluice Association, which are to be able to regulate the water level in the canal stretch between Motala and Borenshult.

We pass a few bridges and then we pass again Baltzar von Platen's grave, which lies on the northern banks of the canal.

Furthermore, past historical land along the canal to re-start the gating of Borenshult, this time we will lose about 15 meters to Lake Boren.

Channel crossing from Motala to the locks in Borenshult takes about an hour, then take nedslussningen about 30 minutes. Then we find ourselves at Lake Boren. The cafeteria with light dishes and drinks is open throughout the trip. The restaurant serves lunch on the journey between BORENSBERG- Motala.
