Today, Göta Kanal is one of Sweden’s most visited and appreciated tourist destinations.
The Göta Kanal, as a whole, stretches 190 kilometers from Sjötorp on Lake Vänern, northeast of Mariestad,
to Mem on the Baltic Sea, just east of Söderköping.

In Västergötland the channel between Vänern and Vättern extends, starting in Sjötorp and ending in Karlsborg.
