Classic Canal Cruise

With M/S Juno on the Göta Canal in Sweden

This is our classic trip that during four days lets you explore a journey in Sweden through the waterway on board the world’s oldest registered ship with overnight accommodation, M/S Juno. The boat trip goes through the Göta Canal from Gothenburg to Stockholm, or vice versa. This cruise is an enjoyable experience where the road is more important than the destination. Full board with breakfast, lunch and dinner is included.

This classic route between Gothenburg and Stockholm has been maintained since the company was founded in 1869. Occasionally we make stops to visit the historical places along the canal. You can choose whether you prefer to get a guided tour ashore or if you want to stay aboard and enjoy a drink on the bridge deck.

All this is included in the Classic Canal Cruise

Attractions along the route

During the cruise we pass two aqueducts and 66 remarkable locks. You will see the locks in Trollhättan and the famous lock staircase at Berg, and also the canal's oldest lock in Forsvik. For those who want there are also optional guided tours at Karlsborg Fortress and Birka the Viking City on Björkö Island in Lake Mälaren.
