Passenger boats on the canal

Travel on Dalsland's canal with a traditional passenger boat that will take you through the beautiful surroundings along the canal. During the summer, the boats depart from both Bengtsfors and Håverud every day except Sundays.

Dalslands kanaltrafik

Dalslands Kanaltrafik is an independent company with two passanger boats - M/S Storholmen and M/S Dalslandia. Most people choose to do a round-trip on the canal. This means that you take a passenger boat in one direction and then take the rail bus back to where you started. 

The boats depart every day except Sundays
June 10 - August 24 in 2024

(No tours on June 21, 22 & 23 due to midsummer) 

The boats depart every day from both Bengtsfors and Håverud. You choose to board where it suits you best. DVVJ's rail bus ensures that you always will get back to where you started.
