What You Can Expect

Royal Canal Tour

Cruise along the beautiful canals of Stockholm

Board your sightseeing cruise at Strömkajen or Nybrokajen at your chosen time. Sit back, relax and listen to your audio commentary as you leave the city center behind and glide through the Stockholm archipelago, a cluster of some 30,000 islands, skerries and rocks spreading east into the Baltic Sea.

Enter the peaceful Djurgården canal, where you’ll pass several historical buildings, museums and lovely green areas. As the canal opens out into the sea, return toward the city and pass the island of Fjaderholmarna and the Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde, the scenic former home of the Swedish Prince Eugen.

Skirting the island of Djurgården, view the Vasa Museum, a maritime museum that displays the only almost fully intact 17th-century ship that has ever been salvaged, the Vasa warship that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628.

Admire the large, bustling island of Södermalm, whose district of the same name is one of the most densely populated districts of Scandinavia. Then view the locks and bridges around the central area of Slussen, situated on the Söderström river connecting Södermalm and Gamla stan. The area is named after the locks between Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea.

Soak up a beautiful Stockholm city panorama before returning to the dock to end your 50-minute cruise.

A lovely 50-minute boat trip around the canals of Stockholm with a guided audio tour complete with an onboard bistro. Very easy to find on the main harbour, and with tours departing on the hour you can simply pick and choose your desired time to fit in with your schedule...couldn't be any easier!

Aside from the land tour, we also wanted to see the city from the water. This is a good tour to take. We learned a lot of new information that we did not hear from the HOHO tour.

It was excellent! Most convenient to get audio comments on different languages.

This was a great way to see the city.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

This was OK. In Scandinavian Countries that have a lot of sites and historical events related to their Canal systems, it is good to see this aspect.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2013

A great alternative way to see Stockholm. The commentary is pre-recorded but it synced perfectly with the locations. It was a very pretty and relaxing way to see Stockholm and the parks and countryside close by. The only problem we had was finding the actual ticket office and departure point. It is practically impossible to locate the sign from the street and the receipt's directions were somewhat vague and ambiguous. As there are multiple companies running similar canal tours, I would have appreciated clear and precise instructions and better signage. But all in all, a really enjoyable experience.
