The Göta Canal trail

One of the easiest ways to enjoy canal life is on two wheels. Ride along the old towpaths – a total of 87 km with no cars in sight. Watch the locks in action, pat the canal sheep or enjoy a picnic on the canal bank while the boats glide lazily by. We have many great cycling packages and accommodation alternatives.

Bicycle transport with public transport

If you want to go by public transport back to the starting point instead of cycling, it is usually possible, but it may be limited if and when you can take the bike with you on a bus or train. Contact SJ, Västtrafik or Östgötatrafiken for current information.
