Copenhagen Canal Tour
From US$13.76
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.

Great Ride

It's a great way to see the city in a different perspective. Lots of information and a really good way to relax your feet after walking round the city. You can seat outside to take good pictures but be careful the bridges are very low.

A good value and a nice way to see the city

We went in mid March so it was quite chilly. Luckily the boat has a glass covered section which kept us from freezing. We had nice views inside the glass and occasionally stepped outside to take pictures. For the price it gave us a nice...More
