Canal kayak
Mary_O
, Jun 2022
The kayaks were only doubles with rudders. I would have preferred a single. The rudder made it difficult to steer as we had not used one before. It made my experience feel hard and not relaxing. I have kayaked several times before this. The dock had the equipment we needed but no bathroom and we could not easily find the office where we were told it was located. It would have been better to face the buildings the tour guide talked about. I had to look over my shoulder if possible. Our guide was very nice and tried to be helpful.

It was wonderful all round. Started great meeting everyone and the tour guide (Tess), very helpful instructions and as we got going, I just had a great feeling. The length of it was good, not too short but any longer would have strained my body. Really nice views of the city and a feeling of really living life being out there. Tess was ace all round, very friendly, happy to answer all questions, informative and best of all, you could just tell she wants to be there and loves it and just like with DJs and the like, when they’re having a good time whilst guiding you, it makes the experience. Would definitely recommend and would happily do it again if I came back :) thank you !!

A must have experience in Stockholm
Barun_M

Stockholm is known as "Venice of the North" and the best way to feel that is to have this guided kayaking tour around the city islands. We really enjoyed the tour with our guide Erik and the group. The starting point is easy to reach and close to TCentralen. They provide all the safety gears. Erik was very friendly and gave us all the necessary tips and tricks. Please try to bring a water bottle with you.

Amazing, so much fun to paddle around this city and seeing it from a totally different view than normally you would. Very much worth it! Be aware that it does require some effort to paddle but on a beautiful day there is nothing better that ti be on the water.

Really cool tour. The guides, Johan and Felix were really friendly and had a good sense of humour. The tour wasn't overly comprehensive, but covered a lot of Stockholm from the water and, being on a few tours before, all of the information was new, so that was great! Kayaks were amazing and in good condition, and it was such a unique way to see the city. Well worth it.

This is an excellent activity to do in Stockholm. I've done bike tours, and this is an excellent way to round it out form a different perspective. It got a bit choppy in the open water, but was still great. We didn't really stop much, so maybe a few other points of interest would be better, but overall was a great set up and experience. I'll definitely do this tour again, and bring friends to do it as well. I should note there aren't any lockers or anything to leave belongings, but they do have a sort of cage that is locked up. Hence, you can bring a bag and put your stuff in the locked cage, or put it in your shoe and leave them in the cage. You also don't need any special clothing, but be prepared to get somewhat wet. You don't need anything for your feet, we all went barefoot.

I took this tour towards the end of my trip and am glad I did. Seeing Stockholm from the water was a great way to understand how the islands are connected and what I missed by walking and biking. So I used the last few days to get to things I learned about on this trip. Our tour guide was very helpful, informative and pleasant. We saw a variety of areas of Stockholm and learned much more about Stockholm's historic from the perspective of its water roots. I highly recommend this tour.
