Canals everywhere with different shots and angles of the various buildings and areas of Stockholm with lots of birds on and flying around the water and beautiful backdrops to complete your picturesque shots. Ended up taking more shots around these canals at several points during the day than anywhere else in Stockholm!

I joined "Royal Canal Tour" operated by Strömma. It was 50 mins tour, with SEK 200 (for adults). A sightseeing boat goes around Djurgärden. The boat enteres the peaceful Djurgärden canal.

It was part of our package tour in Stockholm. We boarded the boat and we got useful information about the areas surrounding the canal. It was a beautiful experience seeing those places. I'd definitely visit it again.

Since Stockholm is an archipelago of thousands of islands, you cannot visit without touring the canals. The way the city has integrated the natural and man-made canals is impressive. A must see part of any trip to the city.

Stockholm is the Venice of North with all its canals and islands around. So you should definitely visit all around canals and waterside to understand Stockholm.

The canals in Stockholm are worth seeing as they separate different areas of the city. Look in the water and you may see the huge fish which swim in the waters. I saw one which I estimated at nearly 3 feet long.

You will get to see a number of buildings and hear the history of Stockholm from the water angle. Took several strolls around these beautiful canals. The scenery is stunning.
