Season: May 1 - September 30
Töreboda - Sjötorp - Töreboda (bike ride 40 km)The cycling holiday starts from Töreboda, perfect when you come by train. From there, you tread along the Göta Canal past 16 locks to Sjötorp by Lake Vänern. In Sjötorp, lunch is served at Café Baltzar by the harbor pool. To know a little more about how the canal was built, you can enter the canal museum which is located by Sjötorp harbor. When the spirit catches on, you turn the bike ride again towards Töreboda. You stay at a B&B in Töreboda and dinner is served at a nearby restaurant.
Töreboda - Tåtorp - Töreboda (bike ride 34 km)After a good breakfast, the bike ride continues towards Tåtorp and finally back to Töreboda. On the way you pass Wassbacken and then the island Lanthöjden where you can visit the seven meter high obelisk which marks the canal's highest land point at 91,5 m above sea level. Continue the wonderful trip to beautiful Tåtorp, here the Göta Canal empties into Lake Viken. In Tåtorp you can visit one of the canal's two hand-operated locks. This lock was built in 1814 and is a level lock, it regulates the water level between the canal and Lake Viken and has a drop of 0,2 meters.
