Get an overview of Stockholm's beautiful island archipelago in just under an hour on this sightseeing canal cruise. Starting from City Hall, cruise around the islands of Kungsholmen, Langholmen and Reimersholme on calm, narrow canals with leafy shorelines and many interesting buildings. You'll learn about the history of Sweden's capital through audio commentary.
Just outside City Hall, board a glass-enclosed boat, settle into the seat of your choice and put on your personal headphones for a sightseeing cruise around Stockholm's peaceful canals. Devised by a leading Stockholm expert, this boat cruise is a great way to view the Swedish capital and discover its history and many famous buildings including City Hall, perhaps the city's most distinguished piece of architecture.
Stockholm is composed of an island archipelago — the largest in Sweden and second-largest in the Baltic Sea. On this 50-minute cruise you'll discover three of the capital's most noteworthy islands, Kungsholmen, Langholmen and Reimersholme, each with an interesting history.
Traveling along intimate waterways with leafy shorelines, view several historical buildings and landmarks, highlighted by your audio guide. You'll learn about the history of this beautiful city and its development from early industrial to modern times, before returning to City Hall where your tour ends.

Stockholm Historical Canal Tour isn't worth the money. No explanation on the boat whatsoever. So you don't know anything about where you are going to or what you are seeing. Poor buffet, food & coffee on the board. You mostly just sit on chairs in a slow going boat inside of the lake.
