The canals, lined with old buildings, raw stone/cliffs and crossed with beautiful bridges are a wonderful way to experience the real stockholm. I'd suggest getting a ferry, (wouldn't bother paying for a tour boat) and seeing the city and its canals this way using your travel pass at no extra cost.

Stockholm is built on several islands so one of the best ways to see the city is from the water. We visited Stockholm with a cruise ship tour group and a canal boat ride was included. It was the best part of our tour. The guide on the boat was very good and explained interesting facts about the history of... More

The canals are amazing. I was there outside the main season (March) so I couldn't do a tour but even without that, the water from the lakes flowing into the baltic sea was just amazing. Very impressive sights

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
