Feel free to ask your expert guide any questions; their job is to ensure your comfort and safety.

Paddle out into the bay, admiring the interesting mix of modern and vintage architecture that makes up the city's eclectic neighborhoods. You'll see landmarks like Stadshuset (City Hall), Kaknästornet (the city's television tower), the medieval neighborhood of Gamla Stan, a former military base that now hosts the annual Stockholm Jazz Festival.

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.
