“The Dalsland canal consists of a string of large and small lakes, coves, fjords and bi-links that are bound together by about 12 km of dug / exploded canal. The total length of the lake system is about 250 km and extends from the western side of Lake Vänern, passing up through the Dalsland landscape, further into the Värmland landscape, up to the Norwegian border and into Norway. In the lake system there are 31 locks distributed at 17 lock stations. The fall height is a total of 66 meters. The canal is considered one of the most beautiful waterways in Europe!
