A rainy and dull day on this boat, well worth it! Fantastic scenic views, captain explained the history of the canal, good food and overall a great experience well worth the money. Nice stop and walk around the lakeside village

We had a lovely day on the Göta canal in Motala
It was very interesting travelling down the canal and through all the locks going down to the Boren lake.
The captain was very informative but, unfortunately, we may have got about a quarter of this in English
.
It was quite expensive so was disappointed we didn’t get more English information

When planning our trip to Sweden I learned about the Gota Kanal and then about the M/S Kung Sverker offering day trips along the canal. Most appealing to us was going through the steepest series of locks along the canal! I contacted the proprietor a couple of months in advance and booked our trip!

After we arrived in Motala we learned that there was an evening dinner cruise with music on the lake the opposite direction from the locks. We contacted the proprietor and he fit us in. We sat with two of the most wonderful Swedish couples! The cruise was beautiful, the food service was excellent, and the music and singing were fun and entertaining.

The next day we cruised the Gota Kanal and the locks. It was everything and more than I expected! There is lots of opportunities for photography. We arranged to have lunch on board. The price is reasonable and the food good. We had salmon which was served cold. It was great, we just weren't expecting it to be cold so that took us a little by surprise.

We stayed at the Hotel Nostalgi for two nights which provided very close access to the M/S Kung Sverker. We were coming from Stockholm via train and it was a very reasonable walk from the train station to the hotel. Although our two M/S Kung Sverker boating trips were the highlight of our trip to Motala, it's a beautiful little town with lots to see and do. We could have easily filled 3 or 4 days there. It's a calm peaceful beautiful town which we plan to make a return visit to someday!

I highly recommend this excursion!
