This article is an itinerary.

Göta Kanal [ˈjøːˈta kaˈnɑːl] [1] is a semi-artificial waterway through the Östergötland and Västergötland provinces in Sweden. It connects the Baltic Sea to Sweden's two greatest lakes, Vättern and Vänern. From Vänern, Trollhätte kanal and Göta älv (a natural river) make up a passage to the Atlantic Ocean, forming a 390-km (just under 250 miles) waterway from coast to coast.

An important industrial transport route throughout the 19th century, it is now used mainly by leisure craft.
