The Göta Canal hotel package suits those who want to enjoy themselves a little bit extra. You will pass historic sites and undertake various activities along the canal as joyful passengers glide past on their boats.

Day 1 (10 kilometres)

The bike ride begins in Sjötorp, taking you along the old towpath along Göta Canal, where oxen used to pull sailing ships along the canal in bygone days.

After 11 locks and approximately as many kilometres, you will reach the Norrkvarn lock area where you will enjoy a great meal and good night's sleep in the hotel.

Day 2 (48 kilometres)

After breakfast, the bike ride continues through the beautiful landscape along Göta Canal towards Töreboda and then on to Tåtorp and Lake Viken. From here, you will turn back towards Norrqvarn. A lovely lunch will be served during the day. By the afternoon, you will be back at Norrqvarn, where you will have time to relax and watch the boats pass by. Dinner is served in the evening.

Day 3 (10 kilometres)

The last day of cycling is an easy, down-hill ride back to Sjötorp. Take your time and enjoy the last stretch of cycling. The experience ends with a delicious lunch at restaurant Kajutan.

The bike ride takes you along the gravel towpath, which is free of cars. You can see the canal the whole time. There are several rest stops along the way and opportunities to stop for a cup of coffee at one of the cosy cafés along the canal.
