Canal boat trips on M/S Storholmen

Take a delightful trip on turn-of-the-century passenger canal boat M/S Storholmen along the Dalsland canal. Travel in style from Bengtsfors or Håverud in the heart of Dalsland county, famed for its numerous lakes and waterways.

Dalsland canal trip

These guided canal boat trips take in the unique aqueduct at Håverud, as well as 16 locks along this beautiful waterway between the towns. Some of the stretches cut through unspoiled nature and modern towns, others through industrial heritage sites and country estates.
If all the sightseeing whets your appetite there is a restaurant on the boat.



Please call us about accessibility. There is a limited number of spots for wheelchairs, trolleys and mobility aids.


Group and charter tours from May to September

Charter Storholmen for 50-100 people for corporate hospitality events, business meetings, anniversaries, weddings, club meetings etc. We arrange group tours, corporate events and provide other trips in the lake system. Call or email us for a quote. We can also help arrange accommodation facilities and other activities for groups in Dalsland. At our 50-seat, fully licensed restaurant all the dishes are homemade. There is free parking close to the quayside and if you require transport to the car park we can provide assistance.
