About this spot
The Dalslands Canal stretches from the vast Lake Vanern to the north-west, allowing vessels to reach the lakes close to the border with Norway. Dug between 1864 and 1868, only 12km out of the overall 250km length needed to be dug out- the remaining distance used the lakes and rivers naturally occurring in the Swedish landscape.

This spot focuses on the lock complex at Haverud. As well as several locks, there are other interesting features including an Aquaduct to let the canal pass over a deep gorge, and a lifting bridge on the railway line to allow vessels to pass underneath.
This is a popular spot, especially in the summer, when boat trips along the canal are possible, as well as enjoying the various cafes and restaurants in the area.
