A good couple of hours are well spent going on one of the many canal tours on offer. We did the 'under the bridges' tour which gives you a different perspective of Stockholm and it's islands

We were in Stockholm on a Saturday and the traffic was terrible. So a cruise on the canals was a great, quicker and much calmer way to see everything. The information was provided through headphones and was very informative. I recommend the "under the bridges" trip.

Took a Stockholm canal cruise and really enjoyed it. The tour was in multiple languages and was both educational and enjoyable.

We took a cruise with one of the sightseeing boats down the canal that divides Djurgaarden from the mainland. It was a 1h and 15 min journey, and offered interesting and nice stories about the harbour área and Djurgaarden.

Great tour took us all around the city. The seats all have headphones so you can listen in various languages, while you look at the various buildings on the waterways. Boat had facilities for wheelchair users too.

We really enjoyed our canal ride. The scenery was beautiful. It was another perspective in which to view all the great sites.

Arrived in the afternoon and took the bridges and canals tour. Great way to get a nice overview of the city and see some scenic areas you would not see elsewhere. Boat is designed for cold or wet weather but also has an en area. Recordings during the ride are useful but not too much information.

You just have to take a trip with a ship. All sort of trips are avalable with a wide range of ships.

a lovely trip that could be done using the same ticket of the hop on hop off bus. Less than one hour, lots of information, in a charming atmosphere. you could visit some of the museums on the rout of the boat ( like the ABBA museum ). If we visited Stockholm again, we will the boat sailing in Stockholm... More
