Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to the cruise jetty in central Copenhagen in time for your preferred departure slot.

Step aboard your boat and find a comfortable spot in the saloon or on the outdoor deck for your 1-hour journey. Then, sit back and take in the picturesque sights as you glide along Copenhagen’s canals and harbor waters. These pretty waterways weave through the history-steeped center, so every turn and twist reveals a new, photo-worthy sight.

Watch for must-sees such as the Little Mermaid statue, inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale; and as you cruise, learn about Copenhagen’s rich history from the onboard guide, who will share illuminating facts and background on the sights.

Drift by the Amalienborg Palace – the winter residence of Denmark’s royals since the 1700s – and pass Copenhagen Opera House, a stunning contemporary building that stands imperiously on the harborside.

Cruise around the pretty canals of Christianshavn, with its cobbled streets, pastel-colored houses and old warehouses. Admire the area’s lovely landmarks, such as the Church of Our Saviour with its winding-staircase spire, and hear how King Christian IV established the district in the 1600s as part of his plans to fortify Copenhagen. 

Pass a host of other famous buildings, and snap pictures of the Old Stock Exchange, famous for its unusual spire, as you sail by the island of Slotsholmen in the city center.

Finally, return to the starting jetty at either Nyhavn or Gammel Strand, where your cruise finishes.

Superb funny and informative live commentary
, Mar 2020
A really lovely way to see some of the highlights of this beautiful city thanks to Janos’ very clever, informative and extremely funny live commentary in three languages - no less! Interesting facts, historical information and clever jokes and puns flowed off Janos’ tongue for the whole hour! Great tour and v highly recommended!
See the city and stay dry

This is a fun and easy way to get an overview of the city worth as bit of history thrown in. Audio is in multiple languages. Good even on a rainy day.

Really great tour. The road had to be changed due to high water level but it did not impact the overall quality of the trip and the team was super friendly and carring.
Good ride around Copenhagen harbour

Booked online, and collected the ticket at the boarding point, which was a smooth experience. Tour departed on time, and the guide filled it with interesting and funny facts throughout the journey! Would definitely recommend it as one of the first things to do since we get details of a lot of the other sights that may be on everybody's 'to-do' / 'to-see' list.
Nice tour!

We had a beautiful sunny day and a very good tour guide so we were not disappointed. Our guide was humorous as well as knowledgeable.

The Copenhagen canal tour was great! We stayed in a hotel near the Central Station (train) and we were able to walk to the canal tour.
Excellent way to see Copenhagen

Our guide was delightful! Happy, smiling, lots of interesting information all delivered in an upbeat manner. Yes, it rained while we were on tour but we had a great time in the orange plastic rain ponchos she gave us.

Very pleasant boat ride to see all the sights. These boats are not covered, so be prepared if it rains. We got caught in the rain, the guide did hand out rain ponchos before the boat left the dock. It did help, but you can get wet. The guide did a great job under the circumstances.
