Experience the greener parts of Stockholm on board a lovely canal boat and sail along the Djurgården Canal, separating Djurgården Island from the northern mainland.

Audio guides are provided, with headsets, in over 11 languages, including English, Swedish, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese. Get fabulous views of the Stockholm skyline as you head back to the city at the end of your 50-minute cruise, providing a different perspective of the Swedish capital.
It was fine. An average boat tour, but we had to wait in line a while before to get seats that would allow us to see any of the sights.
Explore some of the 24,000 islands in the Stockholm Archipelago on this full-day sailing cruise, only a short one-hour trip from central Stockholm. Many of these islands are uninhabited, and home to dense forests, rock formations and stunning natural beauty. Ranging in size from large islets to small rock formations, the untouched islands make for breathtaking scenery. You may even get the chance to steer and sail the yacht during the cruise under the watchful eye of one of our experienced captains. The Stockholm archipelago is home to legends of mystical characters and has influenced many Swedish authors and poets for centuries. See what many people find so inspiring when you visit this beautiful natural site. Join us for a memorable experience!

Great trip through the Stockholm archipelago with a guide in English and Swedish. Great explanations, beautiful route, nice boat with seats inside and outside (optionally with blankets and protection from rain). Very great tour !!!
Very nice trip. The stop is very easy to find. The transition from water to land and vice versa was very exciting but also safe. The tour guide was really great, explained a lot in English and Swedish.
It was so cool, both adults and children thought it was great. The grandson we celebrated (6 years old) said "it was the best surprise of my life".
Nice way to discover Stockholm. Both the guide and the driver/captain are interesting and funny people.
