Rent a covered canal boat

A classic choice for your event

Canal Tours have been sailing harbor and canal tours in Copenhagen since 1904. The fleet consists of a wide selection of modern boats ready to be the venue for your next party or event. We have covered and heated boats with glass windows that you can open during summer to give you a nice breeze.

We recommend covered boats for private events as they provide shelter in the event of summer rain. The price always includes a captain and a guide. If you prefer to bring your own guide, our guide will act as security staff on board.

All our boats are named after famous stories and characters by Danish writer H.C. Andersen. Among them you find the Little Mermaid, the Ugly Duckling, the Nightingale and Big Claus.

Complete the tour with a snack, fruit or beverages.

If you have any particular requests we will do our best comply with these. Please feel free to contact our booking department on +45 32 96 30 00 if you have any questions.
