“a water way in the air”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

dalslands kanal is a lovely way of discovering the swedish country side from your canoe or boat. at one point you are in an akvadukt crossing over another stream and it's an amazing feeling. at a few other points you have to get through water locks to continue your trip

“Most effective stress relaxation on Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The ultimate way to travel throug an ulitimately beautiful part of Swedish nature, with small towns and clever solutions to engineering problems. The Canal is also an interesting part of the industrial history of this region.

“History and technology blended together have done wonder”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2008

Dalsland kanal is described as one of the Europe's most beautiful waterways. It's a 250 km long lake-system with flood gates, which are called "slusen". The gates are manually opened and closed, the separate tanks fill with water to a certain level so the boats can pass through. It's a life-time experience to watch. You can visit the kanal at several places, like Lennartfors, Håverud, Töcksfors, etc. If you are interested to see the oldest version of these, visit Sootkanalen. Thanks to the authority for such an efficient maintenance keeping the historical aspects unmodified.
