We spent the day driving from Bengtsfors to Håverud and enjoyed several stops by the canal along the way. Bengtsfors has a somewhat unusual Japanese inspired garden which is dedicated to the environmental cleanup that took place after mercury deposits were found in the area (courtesy of a 19th century chemical plant).

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.

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...
