Meet your guide at Pipersgatan 45/Barnhusbron and participate in a short safety briefing and orientation on dry land.

Paddle out into the bay, admiring the interesting mix of modern and vintage architecture that makes up the city's eclectic neighborhoods. You'll see landmarks like Stadshuset (City Hall), Kaknästornet (the city's television tower), the medieval neighborhood of Gamla Stan, a former military base that now hosts the annual Stockholm Jazz Festival.

Amazing, so much fun to paddle around this city and seeing it from a totally different view than normally you would. Very much worth it! Be aware that it does require some effort to paddle but on a beautiful day there is nothing better that ti be on the water.

Really cool tour. The guides, Johan and Felix were really friendly and had a good sense of humour. The tour wasn't overly comprehensive, but covered a lot of Stockholm from the water and, being on a few tours before, all of the information was new, so that was great! Kayaks were amazing and in good condition, and it was such a unique way to see the city. Well worth it.

This is an excellent activity to do in Stockholm. I've done bike tours, and this is an excellent way to round it out form a different perspective. It got a bit choppy in the open water, but was still great. We didn't really stop much, so maybe a few other points of interest would be better, but overall was a great set up and experience. I'll definitely do this tour again, and bring friends to do it as well. I should note there aren't any lockers or anything to leave belongings, but they do have a sort of cage that is locked up. Hence, you can bring a bag and put your stuff in the locked cage, or put it in your shoe and leave them in the cage. You also don't need any special clothing, but be prepared to get somewhat wet. You don't need anything for your feet, we all went barefoot.

I ended up being the only one on the tour, but it was a lot of fun. The guide was very knowledgeable and had lots of recommendations for things to do. Just a really cool opportunity, how many people can say they went kayaking in Sweden? Great tour, would definitely recommend!

I took this tour towards the end of my trip and am glad I did. Seeing Stockholm from the water was a great way to understand how the islands are connected and what I missed by walking and biking. So I used the last few days to get to things I learned about on this trip. Our tour guide was very helpful, informative and pleasant. We saw a variety of areas of Stockholm and learned much more about Stockholm's historic from the perspective of its water roots. I highly recommend this tour.
