What You Can Expect

Stockholm Historical Canal Tour

See City Hall and other top Stockholm sights on a canal cruise

Just outside City Hall, board a glass-enclosed boat, settle into the seat of your choice and put on your personal headphones for a sightseeing cruise around Stockholm's peaceful canals. Devised by a leading Stockholm expert, this boat cruise is a great way to view the Swedish capital and discover its history and many famous buildings including City Hall, perhaps the city's most distinguished piece of architecture.

Stockholm is composed of an island archipelago — the largest in Sweden and second-largest in the Baltic Sea. On this 50-minute cruise you'll discover three of the capital's most noteworthy islands, Kungsholmen, Langholmen and Reimersholme, each with an interesting history.

Traveling along intimate waterways with leafy shorelines, view several historical buildings and landmarks, highlighted by your audio guide. You'll learn about the history of this beautiful city and its development from early industrial to modern times, before returning to City Hall where your tour ends.

Please note: This tour is seasonal, and runs May 31 to August 17 only.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2012

Very good

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2010

Stockholm Historical Canal Tour isn't worth the money. No explanation on the boat whatsoever. So you don't know anything about where you are going to or what you are seeing. Poor buffet, food & coffee on the board. You mostly just sit on chairs in a slow going boat inside of the lake.
