For 150 years, the Dalsland canal has been in the service of shipping. We have locked boats from all corners of the world; galas, steamboats, freighters, tugs with lumberjacks, passenger ships, motor and sailing boats and lots of canoes. Without exaggeration, we dare to say that we are a classic among boaters. Traveling on our canal is an adventure and a natural experience beyond the ordinary.
How long does it take to go between certain locks in the Dalsland canal really? Here you will find that information!
The Dalsland canal lake system is as made for canoeing - a maze of large lakes with archipelago-like nature, long narrow lakes and fjords, small magical rivers, and rivers. You can choose to paddle a shorter distance over a weekend or paddle a long trip for several weeks.
