Boat trip with M/S Sandön - Göta Canal


The boat trip

Welcome aboard M/S Sandön. Join us on a journey through Swedish history and see what Göta Canal has to offer. We pass through magical forest, lakes and famlands. Our ship was built in 1910 and it is the oldest Göta Canal day trip vessel.

A tour with us is not only a transport but av convivial experience for both young and old. We have preserved the old atmosphere that only a really old ship has but with comfort and funtionality in mind.
