Royal Canal Tour
Join us on a tour through the greener parts of Stockholm. Leaving the inner city behind, you will pass beautiful and famous buildings before entering the peaceful Djurgarden canal that passes through the island of Djurgarden. The island, which is close to central Stockholm, is beloved by both locals and tourists. The canal was built on land belonging to the royal family since the fifteenth century, on orders from King Charles XIV, and was first opened in 1834.
The canal opens up into the main channel leading from the Baltic Sea to downtown Stockholm. The tour continues back along the shores of Djurgarden towards the city, offering views of the city only available from the water.
Please Note: This tour leaves from a location in the center of Stockholm, not the cruise pier. Transfers are not included. The tour is pre-recorded in Swedish, English, Finnish, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Estonian, and Chinese, and listened to on headsets.
Tour is very informative and an opportunity to see more hidden parts of the canal.

This is a regular boat trip that prides an overview of the city. Keep in mind that the boat is open so protect yourself against the sun. As there was no trip offered from the cruise ship to the pier it became a major pain as taxies were not easily available. The city does not have Uber.
The instructions provided did not match our experience when trying to meet up for this tour. Once that was sorted out the trip was great.

This was a very enjoyable tour and far preferable to a land tour in the pouring rain! We saw parts of Stockholm that we would not have been able to see on the land.
