  • Day 5: Going to Gothenburg

    Enjoy a generous breakfast buffet before it is time to get going again. Drive south towards Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city. On the way explore the impressive locks of Göta Canal in Sjötorp. 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. The canal itself is 190 km long, most of it dug out by hand. The next city on route, Mariestad, makes a perfect stop for lunch. The beautiful wooden buildings of Old Town were erected in the 18th and 19th centuries and are still almost perfectly intact. Wander around on your own among the charming wooden buildings or go on a guided city tour.

    If your children, like most kids do, loves Tivoli’s and aqua parks a visit to Skara Summerland is a must! This is Sweden’s largest amusement park and a visit will definitely make you popular amongst the youngsters in the car. End the drive in Gothenburg where you will spend the next two nights. If you arrive early to Gothenburg we highly recommend a visit to the amusement park Liseberg, located in the middle of the city or a stroll at “Avenyn” the main shopping and restaurant street.

    Driving distance approx. 290 km.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Relieved a lot of stress

We're glad we found you online - having Jennie arrange our hotels and rental car let us focus on where we wanted to go. Jennie put us in unique hotels outside of Stockholm that we would have never found on our own. Using your services relieved a lot of stress. We would be happy to use Nordic Visitor services again.
