Travelling along the Göta Canal, you will experience sheer comfort when you sit back and relax on board, watching as scenic delights pass you by. Before and after your river cruise you will stay in beautifully appointed accommodation, conveniently located close to many interesting sites and attractions.

History and Culture Tours

Visit the automobile museum on Sweden River Cruises

Passionate about all things historic? Enjoy a guided tour of the glorious Baroque Läckö Castle or experience a journey through automotive history when you visit the Motor Museum at Motala. One of the many highlights of our river cruises is the opportunity to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Birka Viking community at Björkö. Indeed, the reconstructed Viking Village at the Birka Museum is a must-see for all history-lovers. One of the most memorable moments of your tour may occur when visiting the Karlsborg Fortress, where the the “Kindborn Family” religious group are known to present visitors with flowers and entertain them with songs. Who better to divulge the history and culture of any destination than the locals? Our guides have first-hand experience of the locations you visit so, if you have anything specific you wish to know during your cruise, ask away!

Our Ships

Each of the ships used on our Sweden River Cruises has been built to perfectly navigate the Swedish waterways. Three ships make up our fine fleet, the Juno, the Wilhelm Tham and Diana. Built in 1874, 1912 and 1931 respectively, these beautiful vessels have been refurbished to contemporary standards, yet still maintain a historic feel. Dine in style in an elegant dining room, or relax with a glass of your favourite tipple in the ship’s bar.
