Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to the cruise jetty in central Copenhagen in time for your preferred departure slot.

Step aboard your boat and find a comfortable spot in the saloon or on the outdoor deck for your 1-hour journey. Then, sit back and take in the picturesque sights as you glide along Copenhagen’s canals and harbor waters. These pretty waterways weave through the history-steeped center, so every turn and twist reveals a new, photo-worthy sight.

Watch for must-sees such as the Little Mermaid statue, inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale; and as you cruise, learn about Copenhagen’s rich history from the onboard guide, who will share illuminating facts and background on the sights.

Drift by the Amalienborg Palace – the winter residence of Denmark’s royals since the 1700s – and pass Copenhagen Opera House, a stunning contemporary building that stands imperiously on the harborside.

Cruise around the pretty canals of Christianshavn, with its cobbled streets, pastel-colored houses and old warehouses. Admire the area’s lovely landmarks, such as the Church of Our Saviour with its winding-staircase spire, and hear how King Christian IV established the district in the 1600s as part of his plans to fortify Copenhagen. 


Pass a host of other famous buildings, and snap pictures of the Old Stock Exchange, famous for its unusual spire, as you sail by the island of Slotsholmen in the city center.

Finally, return to the starting jetty at either Nyhavn or Gammel Strand, where your cruise finishes.

Great tour under difficult conditions.

Thankful for any tours running right now with COVID. Staff were all helpful and kind. The boat was covered and heated but windows were very dirty obscuring the view. The tour was informative- but boat moved a little too quickly by the time the guide repeated what he was saying in two languages to get great pictures. Overall, glad we experienced the tour and would do it again. Weather and global pandemic are factors out of anyone’s control.

Dear Michelle, Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you had a great tour and really enjoyed it. We will take a look into the fact that the boat was moving to fast. We are of course sorry if our windows were dirty. They are cleaned daily but the water can sometimes make them look dirty if it hits the windows and dry. Have a good day. Best regards Michala

It was an good experience. Definitely an easy way to see some highlights of the city. A little weird that we had to stop at another location to pick up other people which delayed the trip a bit. Still would recommend for first time visitors!

Interesting multilingual (using GPS-enabled recordings via earbuds) boat tour through Copenhagen harbor and canals. Was different content than I originally purchased because the high tide made going under some canal bridges impossible. Can choose open air seating or inside a covered area. Well worth the reasonable price.

Not good at all, the tour operators cancelled it the day before which didn’t give me time to plan for anything else. Kind of screwed things up for us, could have planned other things but their late notice messed that up for us.

Dear RATFNK, Thank you for your review. I am not sure which product it is that we have canceled as I don't recall us canceling a tour. Can you please let me know which tour your are talking about and maybe also send me your ticket. I look forward to hear from you. Best regards Michala
