The Mini Canal Cruise is our shortest boat trip on the Göta Canal, making it the perfect cruise for a short getaway in the famous Swedish nature. For two whole days you will enjoy an unforgettable experience aboard the historical M/S Wilhelm Tham as you travel through the beautiful eastern section of the canal. This cruise travels between Motala by Lake Vättern to the idyllic town of Söderköping. And as with all our cruises, the choice of direction is entirely up to you: whether from Motala to Söderköping or the other way around. Full board with breakfast, lunch and dinner is of course included and will be served on board.
This trip is ideal for you if you’re looking for a relaxing and peaceful mini break, an in-depth introduction to the splendor of the Swedish nature, or for the cherry on top of your holiday in Sweden.

One of the great attractions of the Göta Canal are the many historical locks and lock systems. During this cruise we go through a number of them. Best-known here are the hand-operated lock at Borensberg and the lock staircase at Borentshult with a total of five locks. We even spend the spend night at the longest and most famous of them all: the lock system of Berg with its 15 locks, including the Carl Johan lock system at Lake Roxen, the longest lock staircase of the entire Göta Canal.
