Overview

There is something magical about the Dalsland canal and it is not only the surrounding stunningly beautiful nature that will enthrall you. The most astonishing thing is that although it takes you between Vänern and the mysterious Lake Stora Lee in northern Dalsland the canal itself is only a few kilometers long. The secret lies in Dalsland’s unusual topography. The last ice age created many long deep rift lakes and made Dalsland Sweden’s most lake-rich landscape. Making good use of these, only 12 km of the 250 km stretch of the canal system had to be dug or dynamited to link up these deep, clear lakes to a single waterway.

Dalslands Kanal is surely one of the cosiest waterway experienses there is. History, Fresh water, Kid friendy, fun. Nice to go by ferry, but even better to go by own boat!

This is a spectacular canal series of locks. A good glass works and nearby restaurant. All conveniently located alongside the canal.

We spent the day driving from Bengtsfors to Håverud and enjoyed several stops by the canal along the way. Bengtsfors has a somewhat unusual Japanese inspired garden which is dedicated to the environmental cleanup that took place after mercury deposits were found in the area...More

Yes, in the interior of Sweden you will find a Kanal that is old and interesting and still working although it was built between 1864-1868. Along side of it is a restaurant and a fish processing plant where you can buy the best smoked lox...More

The ultimate way to travel throug an ulitimately beautiful part of Swedish nature, with small towns and clever solutions to engineering problems. The Canal is also an interesting part of the industrial history of this region.
