The Göta Canal is one of the most remarkable waterways in the world and an age-old link between Sweden's east and west coasts. Travelling in style on board an original 19th century steamer, your scenic four-day journey takes in one river, three canals, eight lakes, two seas and 66 locks, leaving ample time for stops and excursions as you take in the picturesque landscapes and historic landmarks of Sweden's rural heartland. It's all bookended by overnight city stays in Sweden's two city greats – Gothenburg and Stockholm.
