Göta Kanal, Karlsborg

We arrived in Karlsborg this afternoon about 16:30. It was a bit crowded in the official guest harbour, but we got a place on the opposite side at the sailing club. It was quite OK, a bit to walk to the facilities though.

We had a fantastic trip today from Hajstorp, in total today 26 miles. We have now done 21 locks and a number of bridges. We have actually started to go down now, the first lock down was Forsvik just before Karlsborg.

The trip on the canal today has been quite relaxing and it was a marvelous trip over the Lake Viken, which together with a number of other lakes, are a part of the Canal.

And after the Lake Viken there were some really narrow parts of the canal. Luckily we didn't meet any big boats there.
