Berg, Borensberg, Motala

1st November ’12: One day through the north of Linköping

Departure: 8.00 am

Return: 6.00 pm

Distance: 50km

  • First stop Gotta Canal (Berg).

We discover a deserted village with a lot of fog but a very nice and zen place. There is a canal with locks I think if my memory is good, there are more than 30 locks all along that channel. The locks are stairs and reach Roxen lake. No soul in this village but surely crowded during summer (plenty of parking provided).

  • Second stop was Borensberg.

We walked along the canal and we stop in the village. Nothing amazing to do, but a typical village of Sweden.

  • Motala last stop.

Large city (at least more than 1000 inhabitants). We saw the second largest lake in Sweden: Vattern.
