What You Can Expect

Central Stockholm City Kayak Tour

Paddle past Stockholm's most famous sights

Find your way to the departure point in central Stockholm, where you'll meet your guide and participate in a short safety briefing and orientation on dry land. Whether you're an experienced kayaker or a novice, seeing Stockholm by water is a fantastic way to get a perspective that most tourists and visitors miss. Launch your kayak in one of the city's most protected bays to practice a bit before setting out on your adventure. Feel free to ask your expert guide any questions; their job is to ensure your comfort and safety.

Paddle out into the bay, admiring the interesting mix of modern and vintage architecture that makes up the city's eclectic neighborhoods. You'll see landmarks like Stadshuset (City Hall), Kaknästornet (the city's television tower), the medieval neighborhood of Gamla Stan and the verdant shores of Djurgården, home to the famous Vasa Museum. Pass Gröna Lund, with its colorful theme park, and Skeppsholmen, a former military base that now hosts the annual Stockholm Jazz Festival.

After two hours of exploring one of Scandinavia's most vibrant cities by water, return to your departure point.

Had a great time on this tour. I was the only one who showed up and they still took me out, so I got a personal paddle around the city. Learned a lot of interesting facts and had a lot of laughs. I would recommend this to anyone I knew going to Stockholm.
