A little tip: Buy a RETURN ticket. It’s cheaper and more straightforward. This means you only have to pay once – when you start your journey – and enjoy access to the whole canal and every lock. It’s only worth getting a single ticket if your journey is short.
Return tickets are valid for the entire Dalsland Canal lake system (all locks, there and back).
- up to 4.99 m – SEK 2,100
- from 5.00 m to 7.99 m – SEK 2,700
- 8 m and over – SEK 3,400
Single tickets are best for those intending to pass through one or more lock stations.
