Our journey is a genuine pearl necklace of historical sights and new impressions

Undulating fields and gossamer birch copses embrace our waterway as we glide through the shifting landscape with dignity. Our boat journey follows a blue ribbon through the heart of Sweden. It is a wondrous natural experience regardless of the season youve chosen.

During forays ashore and overnight stops you'll have the opportunity to go on guided tours to some of the foremost sights Sweden can offer. A short list could include Lacko Castle, Vadstena Cloister, Motala Motor Museum and the Birka Viking City. Once, these Vintage Steamers were the fastest means of transport between Stockholm and Gothenburg. Today, the original vessels are still in use, offering a gentle-paced journey with fascinating Historical and Cultural associations. The SIX-DAY* journey is what most travelers consider ideal with a more relaxed pace allowing overnight stops and more sightseeing along the way. The FOUR-DAY journey still allows a gentle-paced trip with stops en route for those with limited time in the area. The Gota Canal Waterway across Sweden passes Archipelagos with thousands of small islands, sails lakes both large and small and passes through 65 narrow locks. The steamer travels slowly past ruins, medieval churches, picturesque small towns and lush forests. You have the chance to get off and walk or bike along the way. Interesting land excursions are also planned.

Gota Canal

The traditional cruise in either direction between Gothenburg and Stockholm has been on the schedule almost every year since the shipping line was established in 1869. On the shorter cruises, the boat usually travels on during the night while you are asleep; only one night is spent in harbour. The longer cruises allow time for more stops and shore excursions along the way. The choice of stops is determined by the direction in which you are traveling.
