Day 1

Töreboda - Sjötorp - Töreboda (bike ride 40 km)

Welcome to Töreboda and the start of your cycling adventure! You pick up your bike at Pensionat Prästgården, which is also your accommodation for the night. You can leave your luggage here right now, you will get the key to the room when you return from today's bike ride. Today you steer the bike towards Sjötorp and the Göta Canal inlet from Lake Vänern. You cycle on the old towpath "canal bank", which goes right along the canal all the way to Sjötorp. On the way you will pass 16 locks, feel free to stop and see how the lock keeper locks the boats in both directions. Sjötorp is a cozy little village that is usually full of life in the summer, here are several restaurants, cafes, ice cream kiosk, craft stalls and mini golf course. Here you have your lunch at Café Baltzar where you also have entrance tickets to the Göta Canal Museum. Here is very interesting to read and see about the Göta Canal's developer Baltzar von Platen and the entire canal construction. Did you know, for example, that the entire canal from west to east is hand-dug and named Sweden's largest building project of all time? When you feel ready, you pedal back towards Töreboda, in this direction it will be a bit easy uphill at the locks, otherwise the road is just as easy to cycle in both directions. Check in at Pensionat Prästgården and enjoy a good book and something good to drink in the garden after today's stage. Dinner is served at Prästgårdens Trädgårdscafé. Enjoy in the garden or if the weather does not allow inside the restaurant.

Day 2

Töreboda - Karlsborg (passenger boat)

Today the journey continues at sea! You take the bikes on the boat, collection on the quay in Töreboda where the passenger boat M / S Bellevue is ready for departure to Karlsborg. On board the boat, the skipper guides you through the history of the canal and the places you glide past. In Tåtorp, where the canal empties into Lake Viken, there is a historic lock that is still opened by hand. If you want to move, you have to help the lock keeper to crank up the lock by hand. When the boat slides further out on Lake Viken, you will be served lunch on board, the tour continues through the mountain canal, one of the canal's most beautiful parts, and further into Bottensjön before it reaches its final destination Karlsborg. Welcome to Karlsborg, Sweden's former reserve capital! Beautifully located between two lakes, Bottensjön and Vättern, is the small port town. After 5 hours at sea, it can be nice to move your legs, take a trip to the harbor to buy an ice cream or something good to drink, here too there is a mini golf course worth visiting. Then take the bike and pedal along the shores of Lake Vättern until you arrive at Hotel Wettern, approx. 1,4 km from the guest harbor. Here you live just a stone's throw from Lake Vättern, take the opportunity to take a dip in the cooling water or maybe a walk to the courtyard at Karlsborg Fortress. The fortress is an awesome monument and the courtyard facing Lake Vättern is strikingly beautiful and cozy, here too there are cafes and ice cream sales. Later in the evening, a nice buffet is served in the hotel's dining room where you can unwind and enjoy a nice end to the day.

Day 3

Karlsborg - Töreboda (passenger boat)

Today it's time to hop on board the M / S Bellevue again which will take you back to Töreboda. Even today you are served lunch on board the boat while the skipper guides you on the way. Once in Töreboda, you check in again at Pensionat Prästgården where you can relax in the lush garden or take a walk around the canal for those who want. In Töreboda, the canal bank runs on both sides of the canal, which makes it a popular walking distance of approx. 2,5 km from Töreboda's canal bridge to Gastorp's canal bridge. In the evening, a 2-course dinner is served in the cozy Krubb restaurant, which is located right next to the canal.

Day 4

Töreboda

Good morning, before it's time to go home, you can enjoy Prästgården's good breakfast buffet with homemade granola, fresh rolls, bacon and the good scrambled eggs. Check out from the hotel room at 11.00. Thank you for this time and welcome back to us at Experience Package!
