What You Can Expect

Royal Canal Tour

Cruise along the beautiful canals of Stockholm

Choose a time that is convenient for your schedule, then make your way to Strömkajen. Boats leave every hour. Climb aboard and find a seat as the boat leaves port. Relax and enjoy the fresh air as you leave the city center behind, listening to the tour's audio commentary.

When the boat enters the Djurgården canal, view the tranquil, leafy shores of the island. Home to the Vasa Museum, a maritime museum that displays a 17th-century ship that sank on her maiden voyage, and the Prins Eugens Waldemarsudde Museum, this island is where many Stockholmers come to spend their leisure time.
Cruise around the island of Fjäderholmarna, the first island in the wider archipelago, which stretches into the Baltic Sea. On the way back to central Stockholm, pass through the bustling Södermalm neighborhood, one of the most densely populated urban areas in Scandinavia. Then view the hip, gritty district of Slussen, situated on a river connecting Södermalm and Gamla Stan, Stockholm's Old Town. Enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the city to end your 50-minute cruise.

Great way to get a lot of Stockholm info in a short time. Was a wonderful jumping off point to see what we were interested in.

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.

A great tour with bite size information on the whole of Sweden. Great for people who are rushing for time but do not want to miss knowing Sweden's history. Just feel that unlike the other tour with Viator, this lack personal touch. We are also unable to ask questions for places we are more interested in.

We really enjoyed this introductory tour of Stockholm. Headsets provide multi-language options. 50 minutes is a nice time to be on one of these low profile motorized barges that are able to pass under the low bridges. Recommended.

Enjoyable - even though it was -4C outside! Scenery beautiful in the snow - would like to see it again in summer. On time, good audio information.

Initially I had a hard time finding a boat tour at all signing up from the US before I got there, as Viator only listed days and dates that didn't really suit my planned activities in the fall, many museums and historic sites have abbreviated hours or are only open on the weekends or only on the weekdays so you end up juggling your schedule. I had signed up for this canal tour on a particular day, but when I was in Stockholm I ended up near the pier the day before after visiting a museum. On a chance I went to the office and asked if they would honor my ticket for the next day and let me go then and there, and they were very flexible. This made a huge difference to me I was able to go on long day trip the next day. So, very nice staff! You shouldn't leave Stockholm without a boat trip or six....It is such a beautiful city and you can't appreciate it fully without seeing it from the water. My one frustration is that parts of the actual canal part of the route are not the most thrilling. You do see some interesting things but there's a rather slow, dull stretch when you are smelling engine fumes. It's nicer when you are in more open water. However you do see some nice views of parts of the city you could see no other way. The best boat trips around Stockholm are mostly seasonal or were on days of the week when I was not there. Summer time is the best, tho I think there is one winter one that might be beautiful for hardy sorts.

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.
