Walk along the Göta Canal
The beautiful hike
Hiking is a great activity, both on your own and together with others. A hike along the towpaths adjacent to the Göta Canal is a wonderfully tranquil experience, yet never boring. You will come close to the ever-changing natural surroundings, boating life and picturesque little localities in pleasant succession. Your experience will be an even better one if you treat yourself to good fool and sleep in a nice bed at the end of every hiking day.

- Rest stops
Camping is permitted at rest stops, where there are also dry toilets. Camping is not permitted at locks and bridges or in our marinas. In Västergötland there are a number of rest areas with shelter from the wind and a barbecue area, and on the Östgöta side, in addition to a rest stop with a wind shelter, there are several rest areas with a barbecue area.
Feel free to use our cycle map, which also works well for hiking. It can be collected from tourist offices and companies along the Göta canal.
