Kanalbutiken 5 knop (The Canal store 5 knots)

Forsvik, Karlsborg

Why not take it easy for a while? Slow down and stop at our shop, right next to the canal's oldest sluice gate in Forsvik. Welcome in and enjoy the fragrance of tar and French natural soaps. Marine-coloured textiles, naval art and exclusively designed brass work.  

You can also buy sweets and old-fashioned juniper cordial if you're craving something sweet.
