Boat tour or a bike tour? Copenhagen has you covered

Copenhagen is unique in many ways. Two ways the city is unique is

  1. it’s is located right by the ocean and a canal runs through the center of the city.

2. it’s super bike-friendly – everyone here bikes! 

So what are you waiting for? Grab the opportunity to explore Copenhagen like you never have before. On a bike or from the waterside!

Go on a boat – let the captain guide you

Experience Copenhagen while relaxing in cosy little boats with enough space for twelve people. These boat tours share routes that you can sail to make the most of your trip. This way you get to explore and dive into a completely different side of Copenhagen that you’ve never seen before. 

Bring together a group of friends or family and get ready to sail. You can choose between seeing the “landmarks” tour which goes through the old city center with many historical sites and the “hidden gems” tour where you are shown nice spots off the beaten tourist tracks. Regardless of which one you choose, a complimentary drink on board is included.

Rent a boat – you’re the captain

Hop aboard and see the gorgeous, old canals with the beautiful buildings, sail towards Christianshavn or towards Sydhavn that lets you see modern, impressive architecture in this newer part of town.

You only have to be at least 18 years old and not intoxicated to drive a boat.

As a captain, you have freedom regarding which part of Copenhagen to sail around, which canals to see. It’s way funnier to sail together with friends or close ones so bring them along as each boat can fit up to eight people, no matter of age and size.

Do your bike tour

Copenhagen is one of the best cities to bike in. Every day, more than 50.000 bikers pass the central Dronning Louises Bro – it’s safe to say that biking in Copenhagen is the ultimate way to get around. 

Rent a bike (or an electric scooter if you dare). You can rent the white city bikes that are located all over the city, you can rent a bike at a local bike shop or book bikes for you and your friends in advance to save some time and enjoy Copenhagen like a local.

Once you’re on your bike – you’re ready to bike around the town and go on a bike adventure. Choose a neighborhood to explore – Refshaleøen as an example is fun to bike to!
