Gota Canal Cruises with eWaterways

The Göta Canal is one of the most remarkable waterways in the world and one of the communication links between Sweden's two largest cities, Gothenburg and Stockholm. There are also three vessels which still ply this historic Canal with cruise passengers.

The Juno, originally launched in 1874, is now the world’s oldest registered ship with overnight accommodation. Travelling down Sweden’s canals on this boat is like stepping into another world. Renovated in 2003, the 29 cabins are nostalgically luxurious and tastefully fitted with brass details and handsome textiles. The bridge deck boasts a covered aft deck offering a perfect view in both sun and rain.

Departure dates: 6, 15, and 24 June; 2, 10, 26 July; and 3, 11, 20 and 29 August. Starting price £1,058 per person including all taxes – flights not included.
