Board your sightseeing boat at either Stromkajen or Nybrokajen and settle into the comfortable inside cabin with its picture windows or, if the weather allows, on the outdoor deck. Then, set off along the lovely waterways and listen to the informative audio commentary as you enjoy the cityscapes from the water.
Absorb the panoramic views as you cruise close to the photogenic Gamla Stan (Old Town) and enjoy a fantastic vantage point over its houses, churches and other top Stockholm attractions. Then, perhaps relax with a drink or snack from the on-board café (own expense) as you sail around some of Stockholm’s central islands and glide under 15 of the city’s picturesque bridges.
Keep your camera at the ready as you circle the large island of Södermalm and pass the impressive quays and boulevards of Stockholm’s buzzing new district of Hammerby Sjöstad. Savor the views, too, as you pass the islands of Lilla and Stora Essingen, and cruise by the island of Djurgården with its woodlands and parks.
Along the way, your boat will also pass through two locks that allow ships to navigate between Lake Mälaren to the west and the Baltic Sea to the east — make sure you capture the working locks on camera!
After almost 2 hours on the water, return to Stromkajen where your cruise finishes.
