Traveling on the Dalsland canal is first and foremost a peaceful experience - with idyllic lock stations and mighty natural scenes, a labyrinth of lakes and canals. At each lock there is a lock keeper who guides you and give you information about the area.
The closing time is not the same as the last time to pass through the lock. The basic rule is that you can´t start lock through if you can´t finish before closing time. After closing time, it is not possible to use the lock.
