Töreboda - Sjötorp - Töreboda (boat trip about 5 hours)Today is the time to experience Sweden's largest construction project from one of the historic canal boats M/S Bellevue. The boat departs from Töreboda at 10.30 and ends in Sjötorp, where the Göta canal flows into Lake Vänern. The first locks in Hajstorp are soon passed and a total of 16 locks are passed on the way to Sjötorp. Thanks to the canal, Sjötorp's community has grown up and here there are no less than 8 locks. With the help of the locks, the canal rises 20 meters above Lake Vänern's surface. Göt a canal flows through a forest landscape out onto open land, where it is often at a higher level than the surrounding fields. Leafy avenues are planted on the side embankments, which contributes to the canal district's unique landscape. During the boat cruise on M/S Bellevue, lunch is served while the captain guides you through the history and natural experiences of Göta Kanal. The boat moves forward at a speed of 5 knots, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy one of Sweden's most famous buildings. The day ends with dinner at Prästgården's Garden Café and an overnight stay in the Bridge Cottage right next to the edge of the canal.
Töreboda - Hajstorp - Töreboda (Hiking 10 km)The walk goes along the Göta canal on the completely car-free road to Hajstorp, which is one of the canal's most popular destinations. In Hajstorp there is a cozy cafe located next to the edge of the lock. When you sit here and have a coffee, you see the spectacle that the canal is known for with boats and a wonderful folk life. If you are interested in crafts, there is a Crafts magazine with local craftsmen. The day ends with dinner at Prästgården's Garden Café and an overnight stay in the Bridge Cottage right next to the edge of the canal.
Töreboda - Jonsboda - Töreboda (Hiking 14 km)Enjoy a nice breakfast in the old rectory. Today the hike continues towards Jonsboda which is 7 km. from Töreboda.
