Göta Canal

Show on google maps

It’s no wonder that the Göta Canal has been voted the Swedish Construction of the Millennium. Along the canal, there’s an incredible amount to experience for the whole family. Cycle or hike along the pedestrian road, and check out all the canal boats being raised by the lock. Maybe you can even be the one to glide on the water in a cruise boat, canoe or kayak? The table is located in a lush forest grove next to the canal. It is within walking distance of Norrqvarn Hotell & Konferens, which offers really good natural and sustainable food thanks to close cooperation with local producers. The table in Norrqvarn is located between Sweden's two largest lakes, just over 2 hours north-east of Gothenburg.

A do-it-yourself outdoor dining experience

Decide which table and natural landscape you would like to explore and make a reservation. Your reservation includes a seat at the table, inspiring local recipes and a cooking kit with basic supplies to help prepare your findings and cook a delicious meal.

Eating in Swedish nature. Swedish forests are filled with edible treats such as berries, mushroom, nettles and other greens, and they are of course best enjoyed in the outdoors.

Get the full experience of the wild with our add-ons

While foraging and cooking in nature is fun, it can also be a bit of a challenge. For a truly fulfilling experience, we recommend you book an add-on. A local foraging guide, a professional chef or a comfortable accommodation nearby will make your visit all the more memorable.
