Mini Canal Cruise

A two-day cruise on the Göta Canal in Sweden

The Mini Canal Cruise is our shortest boat trip on the Göta Canal. During two days you will get an unforgettable experience on board M/S Wilhelm Tham through the beautiful eastern section of the canal. We travel from Motala by Lake Vättern to the idyllic town of Söderköping, or vice versa. Full board with breakfast, lunch and dinner is included and will be served on board.

This trip is ideal for those who want to experience a peaceful mini-vacation in Sweden. We slowly cruise through the beautiful landscape aboard the historical M/S Wilhelm Tham where you will meet people from all corners of the world. You can also book a return trip by bus.

All this is included

Overnight stay by the locks of Berg

During the cruise we go through many unique locks, for instance the hand-operated lock at Borensberg and the lock staircase at Borentshult with five locks. We will spend the night by the famous lock system  of Berg with its 15 locks, including the Göta Canal’s longest lock staircase, Carl Johan by Lake Roxen.

M/S Wilhelm Tham

M/S Wilhelm Tham was built at Motala Werkstad and was launched in 1912. She was listed in 2004 by the National Maritime Museums, considering her historically important. This distinction naturally makes us quite proud as it proves our efforts to preserve the ship have succeeded. Read more about M/S Wihelm Tham
