Travel

Day 1

Söderköping - Mem - Söderköping (bike ride 12 km)

Today will be a small soft start to your cycling holiday. Once in Söderköping, you pick up your bikes and pedal 6 km out to Mem by Slätbaken. This is where the canal empties into the Baltic Sea. The bike ride goes on car-free roads with the canal as your nearest neighbor with boats gliding forward at 5 knots. Take the opportunity and discover the small town of Söderköping with its cozy little cobblestone alleys. A Visby in miniature. This is where they recorded the Madicken films that Astrid Lindgren wrote about in her books. Feel free to go on a guided tour with the small locomotive in Söderköping. Dinner is served at a nearby restaurant in the city.

Day 2

Söderköping - Ljungsbro (bike ride 53 km) NOTE: Book the bike boat Roxen Snabben yourself and reduce the bike distance by 35km

Today you take aim at Norsholm, where lunch is served right next to the canal edge. Experience the tranquility of cycling along the Göta Canal. The canal is lined with large deciduous trees and winds through forests and open landscapes. The tour takes you on the car-free old towpaths along the Göta Canal. New for this year is the bicycle boat that takes you across Lake Asplången. A wonderful experience that enhances the joy during the trip. A cycling holiday along the "Swedish Blue Ribbon" is relaxation, nature and culture at the same time. You get good use of the 7-speed bikes in the hilly landscape around Lake Roxen. It is well worth the effort when you arrive at Berg and Bergs Slussar as is the biggest tourist attraction along the Göta Canal, where the boats are lowered and raised 18 meters in the canal's impressive lock staircase with seven locks.You live at Ljungsbro hostel which is 3 km from Berg and dinner is enjoyed at Kanalkrogen Delimo in Berg.

Day 3

Ljungsbro - Motala (bike ride 19 km, boat ride 2 hours)

After you have eaten breakfast, it's time to cycle to Borensberg, here you board the boat M / S Kung Sverker. During the bike ride to Borensberg you pass locks and viaducts. It is a powerful feeling to stand and look down at the cars that go under the canal. The tour goes through the varied Östergötland landscape. Enchanting views and historical stories follow you on the tour. At 13.10 M / S Kung Sverker departs from Borensberg and arrives in Motala at 15.30. Lunch is served on board the boat while the boat glides majestically across the water. During the cruise, the skipper guides and tells about the history of the Göta Canal and you get to take part in the canal in the canal's steepest lock staircase in Borenshult. Once in Motala, you have time to explore the capital of the Göta Canal before it's time for dinner and a comfortable bed.

Day 4

Motala (return to Söderköping or hometown)

Today you have time to experience the capital of the Göta Canal. In order for it to be a pleasant end to your little adventure, we recommend a visit to the Göta canal exhibition called "From idea to reality". The exhibition is located in one of the two pavilions next to the canal in the area of ​​Old Motala Workshop, between Borenshult's locks and Motala guest harbor in Lake Vättern. The exhibition shows how Baltzar von Platen took the 300-year-old idea of ​​building a waterway across Sweden and realized it by building the Göta Canal. Here you get to meet the people who made it possible to build the channel and the technology they used. You leave the bikes of course in Motala, but you take your own home via Bus to your hometown or to the car in Söderköping. To get back to Söderköping, there are buses between Motala and Söderköping at regular intervals, see timetable for Östgötatrafik
