Day trip from Söderköping to Norsholm

Göta Canal cruise from Söderköping to Norsholm through 12 locks with M/S Göta Lejon.

Product description

This day trip starts in the medieval trading town of Söderköping and then heads west. The ship M/S Göta Lejon takes you past Söderköping's old dock and Mariehof's castle building from the 14th century.

You can lock through Carlsborg's double locks that lift the ship 20 meters above the sea and then go through one of the more difficult passages on the Göta Canal. The lock there is called Klämman and got its name from the fact that the channel there is sandwiched between high hills. Further on, you pass Västra Husby church, which was built in the 12th century and dedicated to the Norwegian king Sankt Olof. He came to these parts in the 12th century to Christianize the then pagan population. After that, the ship crosses Lake Asplången and the locks Hulta and Brådtom before approaching Norsholm, which was once an important railway junction.
