Boat tours

Copenhagen is an old harbour and maritime city, and one of the most beautiful and enjoyable ways to see it, is from a boat sailing down its charming canals. Take a traditional canal tour boat or a romantic gondola, be the captain of your own solar energy-driven boat, be adventurous in a kayak, or go fishing. The possibilities on water are endless.
