The boats are in no way difficult to sail. For those that complain in this regard, I would suggest using your bicycle to tour the canals. It has a steering wheel versus a tiller...much more comfortable. After a brief introduction and insrtuction from Brad Pitt...More

This boat is the worst sailing experience we have tried. The lack og power makes the boat uncontrollable and steering straight is a full time job. We laughed about it because we all tried to control it with no success. Don’t bother.

If you're looking for something fun and different to do this is the thing!!! The price was more than fair and the fun was second to none! We did it as a couple , but I think you can have up to 8 people.

Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By,
you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old
brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century,
and canals which are home to many boats and ships,
some of which has been turned into restaurants or even
serve as fully furnished homes. The best known
attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free
town” of residents who squat on a former military
