Why rent a boat on Lake Vänern?
Vänern is the EU’s largest lake with many fine archipelagos and around 22,000 islands and cuttings. Here you will find vast sandy beaches, sanded rocky slopes and pebble stones. The archipelago around Mariestad has several large nature reserves set up to protect the rich natural values. Here there are large unspoilt areas of wilderness character with multi-year-old pines where sea eagles and osprey nest. You do not need to be crowded and can often find your own beach or island. You do not have to think about burning jellyfish or showering the salt off when bathing.
“No archipelago in the country is so isolated and it is precisely this seclusion that pleases” County Administrative Board on Djurö National Park.
Don’t miss the exotic and scenic Djurö National Park located in the middle of Vänern. Here in the heart of the EU’s largest lake lies about 30 islands and cuts. In addition to wave-washed hills, pebble beaches and the rich bird life, there is a large grass-covered glade on the main island Djurö which is kept open by the fallow deer grazing. A nice contrast to the surrounding barren pine forest.
If you want to go Göta Canal you have 2 hours up to Sjötorp where the Göta Canal begins. After a day trip over Lake Vänern, Dalsland’s canal begins. M / S Pärla clears both maximum width and depth and can go all the way up to Lennartsfors, near the Norwegian border before the mast height makes it time to turn back around.

M / S Pärla can be rented if you have a master’s degree and / or documented experience of slightly larger boats.
The rental period normally runs from Sunday at 4 PM to Sunday at 2 PM. In the high season, the boat is usually not rented out on weekends. If the boat is vacant, however, it can be booked over weekends no earlier than the weekend before. Sometimes the boat is used occasionally or parts of weeks in other activities in the company. Then there is the opportunity to rent during the other days of the respective time periods. High season falls during week 24 – 33.
The boat is privately owned. This means that you can rent it directly from the owner for 80% of the stated prices.
