Take a kayak around an island!

For the best views of Stockholm, take a kayak and row it around the Kungsholmen island. A lovely warm 2 hours in the summer!

We did the Stockholm sightseeing Royal canals tour as it seemed to be one of the only ones running on the Monday that we visited. It was interesting but I thought a bit expensive for the 45 mins we were travelling I was looking forward to having a coffee on board too but, even though the man was at the... More

We took the City Sightseeing "Under the Bridges" canal boat tour, which takes about 90 minutes and goes outside the harbor and around some of the islands. It also goes through some locks. Great way to see the sights!

Nice to take a canoe trip in the canals. There are some for rental at the Djurgardsbron. The canals are really beautiful to sit next to and relax or take photos.

We took the canal tour on the first day in Stockholm (it was included in our Stockholm card). It was a beautiful day for taking pictures and seeing Stockholm from the water.

A delightful way to see many lovely old homes and areas of Stockholm. The city is spread out over several islands. So the canals have several different types of tours. A nice way to see many parts of the city without doing a lot of walking or bussing.

Given the other canal tours I've been on, this just didn't match up. The width and size of the canals meant you often weren't at all close to the landmarks being spoken about. Much better things to do and see in Stockholm.

I took a boat trip to visit the canal. I was lucky that it was a beautiful sunny day on the day I visit. The audio guild system helped me to understand the story of the city more.

Canals across Stockholm are a very special attraction. A boat ride around is highly recommended. It takes around an hour to have a glimpse of all the attractive canals. Some place around the canals are highly scenic. One can spot picnicers in huge numbers on a nice sunny day. What a joy.

The walks alongside the diverse waterfronts are the most enjoyable (as opposed to the busy touristic "Old Town" area), and you ca spot beautiful views of either the Royal Place or, far away, the Townhall or even a beautiful sunset.
