What to Expect
If a whirlwind tour hitting all the top landmarks isn't quite your speed, then this relaxed, customizable tour is perfect for you. Step aboard a traditional canal cruiser with a personable captain to tour the canals of Copenhagen in a relaxing slow pace. Find a seat indoors or out, with blankets available to keep you warm during the colder months. As you cruise, listen to commentary from the captain and sip a glass of wine, beer, or a soft drink (traditional mulled cider or hot chocolate during the winter). A small group of just 12 people guarantees an intimate atmosphere and plenty of time to ask questions. Get unobstructed views of some of Copenhagen top sights, which may include Christiansborg Palace, Church of Our Savior, the Royal Opera House, Amalienborg Castle, Freetown Christiania, or the Circle Bridge, according to the group's preferences.
