Copenhagen Canal Tour
Enjoy views of Copenhagen from on board a boat navigating the city's famous canals. Learn about the city's highlights through a guide's commentary as you travel, gleaning little-known facts about the Danish capital. Highlights include Christianshavn, Copenhagen Opera House, the famous Little Mermaid Statue, and Amalienborg Palace.
What to Expect

Book your preferred departure time. Cruises leave throughout the day, making it easy to fit this tour into your schedule.

Step aboard, sit on the deck or inside the saloon, and then relax and enjoy the ride. Traveling the canals allows you to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time and get different views and photo angles than you would if traveling by land. You’ll pass must-see highlights, such as Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen Opera House, the cobblestone-paved Christianshavn neighborhood, the island of Slotsholmen, the Old Stock Exchange, and the spires of the Church of Our Savior. As you travel, listen to engaging commentary from the guide, covering topics from ancient history to modern culture; walk away with knowledge and little-known facts that you otherwise would not be privy to.

Customize the end of your tour by choosing drop-off in either Gammel Strand or Nyhavn.

This was by far the best excursion/tour I took while in Copenhagen. I recommend taking the canal tour that does not make stops. Do the complete tour at one time.

GREAT way to see this beautiful city!!

We purchased a ticket that allowed us to get on and off at any of the stops and was also good for 24 hours so we enjoyed using this transportation to get around.

Well done

For a one hour tour this was very informative. Even though it was raining our guide stopped at places so we could take pictures. She was quite entertaining too! Lots of interesting stuff to learn about. A nice tour for all.

A good tour with a problem.

The narration during the tour was fine and the route was interesting, but there was a major problem. The roof of the boat substantially impaired your ability to see.

Thank Jeff S
