I live in Stockholm and discovered the canal tour around the island of Kungsholmen. Pretty Karlbergskanalen where overhanging tree branches form a green canopy, marinas and an opportunity to see some of the latest housing development in Stockholm from the lakeside. This architecture can them be compared with the view of the grand buildings on Norr Mälarstrand towards the end... More

Stockholm is built on islands. There are many canals and you can do a very nice boat trip. I did it during mid summer I can imagine that in the winter it is very cold. Tour boats start from many stops in the city such as Nybroplan, outside Grand Hotel, Slussen and more. It is really a nicw trip and... More

During my recent stay in Stockholm, every weekends I would go out for afternoon walk so as to get natural light. The Stockholm Canals was one of such destinations.

It was cold but bright day to walk through the old town and across the canal bridges. The view and atmosphere was both relaxing and beautiful.

For 170sek (around 17€ / £15) per person, you'll go on a 45 minutes tour around Gamla stan and Djurgarden ! Free audio guides are available in every language possible, and are really interesting. I'd definitely recommend it. Be sure to check beforehand the availability of the tour. For example, I was there from the 13th to the 17th of... More

Either if you travel with your "love", your family, your friends or even alone, you should have a walk around stockholm. For those who doesn't know, stockholm has been built on small islets that do get connected by bridges. Beneath those bridges, the water forms some canals. Everyone should visit them and check out the beauty of this city (&... More

Sightseeing tour boats are leaving from many different places in the city such as Nybroplan, outside Grand Hotel, Slussen and more. In some cases canals where dug to connect some of... More

If it summer and the weather is nice. A ride on a canoe/kayak or a boat during an evening in Stockholm is probably one of the best place to be (Stockholm archipelago is even better). This if you like nature and city combined. You can more or less travel around the whole of the city (you have to pass a... More

Nice perspective to see Stockholm, and pretty much to learn about Stockholm as well, A good "overview" one could sar. Especially for people who dont like/can excercise for whatever reason.
