“A Little Piece of Heaven on the Gota Canal Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

Thanks to the tripadvisor reviewer who put us on to this cruise on the Gota Canal. We booked through Euro River Cruises and chose the 4 day option. The boat we were on will be 100 years old next year but is meticulously maintained and wonderfully staffed. Extremely small cabins (as on a train) but you use the cabin only for sleeping. We were on the bridge deck (top) which gave us excellent access. Great weather helped and every day brought new sights as the boat stops at least once during the day as well as good companionship with the less than 50 other passengers. We travel internationally once or twice a year and rated this as one of-or perhaps the most-memorable trips. Food and service absolutely top. Highly recommended.

“Gota Canal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

If visiting Linkoping you must take a trip out to the Gota Canal and watch
the boats passing through. Even if you dont have a car, its just 15 minutes
by bus - the drivers are so helpful they will tell you when to alight and then
its just 2 - 3 minutes walk. Such a beautiful and relaxing place, go for a
swim, have lunch by the side of the canal.

“Berg`s lock by the Göta Canal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

Berg´s Lock is a socalled lock-staircase consisting of 7 locks ending towards the east in a nice big lake. there is a nice little café and a really nice minigolf course overlooking the little resting harbour. beautifull and unique. close to this you will find some old monestery and so forth.

“Tranquility on the Gota Canal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2010

once-in-a-lifetime cruise into the beautiful Swedish countryside on old boat with tiny cabins and shared toilets; but: everything was kept clean; the food was delicious, and the staff and guide (who spoke 12 languages...) were both knowledgable and friendly. Had an amazing 4 days onboard in August.
