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.

How it works

1. Book your seats at the table for free. Please note that the booking is for seats at the table and local DIY recipes – no meals, chefs or table decor are included in the booking

2. For 150 SEK/person you will get basic ingredients to complement the wild ones that you forage yourselves. 

3. Once you’ve made a reservation you will receive an email from your local contact about the experience and how to book add-ons like a cooking kit with basic supplies, a local chef or a foraging guide, accommodation and more

Reservation is closed for now, but the Edible Country tables will be open for bookings again in 2020.
