6 ways to conquer Copenhagen's waters

It doesn't take much more than a few rays of sunshine before Copenhagen's waterfront is filled with renewed energy and joyful faces. Here are some tips on how to enjoy the city's beautiful lakes and canals.

#1 Swimming in the harbour baths 

Copenhagen's waters are clean enough to swim in, which makes the city's harbour baths vibrant with life all of the summer season. Make sure to swing by for a dip at Islands Brygge or one of the other locations.

#2 Enjoying a floating picnic

Glittering water, fresh air and good food is just a great combination. With a GoBoat, you can bring your picnic anywhere. 

#3 In a swan-shaped boat

The Lakes are an amazing hangout spot and a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city, and one of the best ways to see them is in a bird-shaped boat. Rent these beauties from Kaffesalonen.

#4 At your own pace

Probably the most popular way to enjoy Copenhagen's canals. Get your own kayak or a guided tour from Kayak Republic.

#5 On the traditional tour

No matter how many times we've done this, the canal tours never go out of fashion - especially not on a sunny spring day.

#6 Or be creative

Okay, we admit not everyone can just put together a homemade raft, but come on - how great is this?
