Important information for those wishing to travel to or from Gothenburg
Between August 27 and September 19, 2021, the Swedish Maritime Administration will be conducting an audit of the Trollhätte Canal. The locks and parts of the fairway will be drained, making it impossible for vessels to travel the canal. Please note that this means it will not be possible to continue from the Göta Canal to Gothenburg, or vice versa, during this time period.
This is how it works
The Göta Canal has different seasons to choose from, pre- and post-season, and high season. Each one has its own charm and is suitable for different types of boat trips. However, the magnificent experience is the same regardless of when you choose to travel.
