Land transportation

Many people choose the Dalsland Canal Return Trip while others go for the classic Tour of Western Sweden. This means that instead of taking a return trip, the boat is transferred over land to the neighbouring lake system – or to the sea. Dalslands Kanal AB has partnerships with a number of experienced land transport carriers, which give you the opportunity to transport your boat to and from the canal.

Please note: All of the land transport options below apply in both directions.
