Copenhagen Canal Tour
From US$13.25
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.

a good way to relax after a long day

The tour boat captain and the guide were excellent!

It was cold and dreary, but the captain sailed the boat expertly and smoothly thru tight places. And the tour guide was wonderful with informative explanations in many languages for the hour long tour. The sights are beautiful and shouldn't be missed.

good enough

To be fair, it was a misty day with limited visibility so wasn't the best time to take the tour. That said, it was hard to understand the guide. The sound system wasn't the greatest; the words sounded muddled and I soon gave up trying...More

Nice boat tour

So to start off I made the mistake by sitting next to the engine. I couldn't hear a thing the tour guide said. My first bit of advice do not sit close to the engine! Other than that my canal tour was wonderful. I really...More
