The Royal Canal Tour departs from Stromkajen opposite the Grand Hotel. It costs Sek 165 & takes 50mins. I found the tour to be interesting especially passing the beautiful island of Djurgården, Skeppsholmen & the Old Town (Gamla Stan), . There are many wonderful wooden waterfront homes to view along the way.
After passing the island the tour returns towards the city and passes Fjaderholmarna, Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde, the Vasa Museum, Sodermalm and Slussen.
The boat is undercover so its great if its a rainy day.
The tour provides tape guides in 11 different languages with a map. There is a cafe and toliets on board.The Canal tour starts between 10:30am and 7:30pm during the summer.More
