Boat trips, locks and nature experience on the Halden Canal.

MS Brekke and crew would like to take you on a unique journey through Norway's oldest channel system. An adventurous and historical journey through beautiful scenery and spectacular locks.


The channel as a whole has a difference of altitude of 40 meters, divided into three locks.

At Brekke you will find  Europe's tallest lock with a lifting height of almost 27 meters.


You can experience the Halden Canal this summer on one of our routes, which runs Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday (14.06.17 - 20.08.17). Charter tours on request.

The history of the Halden Canal extends far back in time. The canal was built in the years 1852-1860, but the locks were furthest destroyed by flooding in 1861. These were rebuilt in 1877. The locks at Ørje and Strømsfoss dates back to 1860. Brekke lock, as we know it today, was completed in 1924.

The history is shown at the Haldenvassdragets Kanalmuseum - located at Ørje locks. On board MS Brekke we focus on using the resources and expertise available locally. The food and drink you get served on board should mainly come from local suppliers. We will go so far as to produce only biodegradable waste, we have the environment and nature with us in mind on our journey through the waterway.
