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 at Pipersgatan 45/Barnhusbron 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 , Riddarholmen Kyrka, Gamla Stan and Södermalm
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.
