Copenhagen Canal Tour - Exploring Hidden Gems

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Hey Captain was founded by friends on a boat and this is the atmosphere we want to deliver to our guests. So sit back, relax in our comfortable boats, and enjoy a drink as we take you around on a charming experience of the canals. 

During the tour your captain will show you our favorite sights in the harbor. There is plenty of time to ask questions and we hope you want to engage in a conversation about life in Copenhagen. Our ambition is to give you a sense of the city more than an overload of historical facts. The route is not 100% standardized as we want to try to accommodate specific wishes of the group and special events in the harbor. We will give you a good overview of the main sights in the central city in a relaxed way. The 2-hour Hidden Gems Tour will take you off the beaten track from the standard canal tour routes in the inner town, exploring the upcoming residential areas of either the South or North harbor.
  • Drink provided wine, beer, or soda during this Copenhagen canals tour
  • In-depth commentary from your captain-guide
  • Route will vary according to the day's events and group preferences
  • Relaxed tour with an intimate group of 12 people or fewer
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.

What a great way to discover Copenhagen! The captain from Finland told us many stories and had great knowledge about Copenhagen’s history and what will change in the future. Next time we will do the long tour!!

Hi Joan, we were a patron of the tour not a proprietor. The departure point for the tour is within a short and pleasant walk (say less than 10 minutes) walk from the Amileiborg palace though at Amaliehaven

It takes 2 hours but it won’t feel like two hours at all!
