One of Sweden's most well-preserved industrial heritages
The Dalsland canal is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful canals in the world and one of the most well-preserved cultural heritage in the country. The Dalsland canal stretches between the Köpmannebro in western Vänern, through the landscapes of Dalsland and Västra Värmland and into Norway. The canal has a total of 17 lock stations and 31 locks with a total navigable fairway of 250 km. The Dalsland canal was opened for sailing in 1868.
We are open for passenger boat traffic during May-September and for general sailing (approx.) June 10-August 20 each summer.
Dalslands Kanal AB is 87% owned by a foundation, 13% are private shareholders. Our main mission is to nurture the cultural heritage and develop the Dalsland canal as a catalyst for the tourism industry along the canal. We are 8 year-round employees and about 50 seasonal employees. Our head office is located in Upperud.
