This is how it works
Buy a canal ticket for the Göta Canal
You can buy a ticket for the Göta Canal through our online booking service. There, you choose which section you wish to cruise and whether you wish to travel during the booking season or the high season. If you choose the booking season, you will also need to select a start date for your journey. During high season, you may travel without pre-booking any particular date. Then you will need to provide contact information as well as information about your boat, to receive your ticket price and proceed to pay by card. You are free to cancel or change your booking up until the beginning of your journey.
During high season you may also pay on arrival at the Göta Canal. You can pay by card at one of our canal offices, where our lock-keepers will assist you.
When you check in to your journey at the canal office you will receive a ticket flag from the lock-keeper. This shows that you have paid for your ticket, as well as indicating which section of the canal you will be travelling. The flag is attached to the boat and must remain, clearly visible, throughout the entire journeyBook now
