What to expect

The harbor in Copenhagen is undergoing rapid change, turning from an industrial harbor into a recreational space that is open to everyone living in the city. During the summer months it acts as the main nerve binding the city together and attracting numerous water-based activities in the process.

This hidden gems boat tour will start from the harbor and will show you some off the beaten track spots in Copenhagen that are favorites amongst locals. You will go out of the standard tourist path and get an introduction to cool areas that give you a sense of what life in Copenhagen is all about.

You will take either a Southern route or Northern route depending on what is going on in the harbor on your specific departure day. During the tour you will also have the option to stop and get out of the boat to explore your surroundings.

As you explore the upcoming areas away from the inner part of the city you will see how former industrial buildings are being transformed into new spaces, where the new and old are mixed in recent architectural structures. Some of these are designed by famous architects like Bjarke Ingels and others by new upcoming talents.

By the end of the tour you will have an understanding of how design and living play an essential role in the new development of Copenhagen and an essential part of the Danish lifestyle. You will also learn exactly where to go if you want to have an afternoon beer in the sun, a relaxed morning coffee, or simply a bit of relaxing time away from it all.
