Västergötland is a part of West Sweden. You’re never far from water when you visit Västergötland – the province stretches out in between Lake Vänern and Lake Vättern, with the famous Göta Canal in the north and Gothenburg with its archipelago in the southwest. This makes Västergötland an excellent place for boating, kayaking and birdwatching.
