A kayak is the perfect way to explore the waterways of Stockholm — also known as the ‘Venice of the North’ — and to discover the city as it is rarely seen by visitors. After meeting your guide in central Stockholm, receive a safety briefing and training on how to paddle a kayak. Then, head to a protected bay to practice before heading out on the open waters. Your experienced guide will make sure you are comfortable with the wind and the waves before taking off.

Once you’re ready, paddle out and begin your kayak tour! Admire the skyline of Stockholm, seeing landmarks such as Kaknästornet (the TV tower), and note the interesting mix of modern and traditional architecture that makes Stockholm one of Europe’s finest cities. See the magnificent Stockholm City Hall where each year the coveted Nobel Prize is awarded to worthy recipients from all around the globe. Admire the elegant buildings lining the shores of Gamla Stan (Old Town), and the green beauty of Djurgården, where the popular Vasa Museum can be seen.

Stockholm’s stunning city archipelago is also home to the island of Gröna Lund, with its colorful theme park, and Skeppsholmen — both of which you will see on your tour. Once a military base, the island of Skeppsholmen is now full of museums and is the venue for the annual Stockholm Jazz Festival. After two hours exploring the waters, return to the start point where your kayaking experience finishes.

This kayak tour is suitable for all abilities, and your guide will ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.

Had a great time on this tour. I was the only one who showed up and they still took me out, so I got a personal paddle around the city. Learned a lot of interesting facts and had a lot of laughs. I would recommend this to anyone I knew going to Stockholm.
