About the tour

Join Heather to experience the old seafaring city of Copenhagen as it should be seen, from the water. She’ll greet you close to the Danish royal palace at Amalienborg, and from there take you right up to date as she steps on board one of the new battery powered boats which traverse the sparingly clean harbour. Copenhagen is a dynamic city full of contrasts and we’ll find out how it hopes to become the first carbon neutral capital in the world in 2025. It’s also the fairytale capital of world and we’ll get to hear about Denmark’s most famous son - Hans Christian Andersen and pass by some of the places that he lived and was inspired by. The city has fantastic architecture, design, a rich and vibrant seafaring history and as we disembark from the boat you’ll discover the colourful harbourside of Nyhavn, the perfect place for some comforting ‘hygge’ (cosiness) to chase the winter lockdown blues away.

Meet your local guide


We call Heather a guide but she has so many skills it feels like a single label isn't enough. It’d be more accurate to call her a guide, storyteller, journalist, artist, historian and novelist. But then that would be a long title… Packing her personality and the colourful history of Denmark all into one live-stream can only mean a boatful of fun and entertainment. Join her as she shares her love of Copenhagen and her infectious humour with you!

Heather has been guiding since Jul 2012

Heather presented a very friendly and informative tour around the Nyhaven part of Copenhagen. It's beautiful. We even went on a boat! So want to go there post Covid!

Getting out on the water and demonstrating one of the ways to see Copenhagen is a really nice idea. It also helps to show what a spacious City Copenhagen is. It’s a bit sad to see the streets so deserted but Heather bubbles cheerfully along bringing it to life with her commentary. She makes it hard to believe it was minus 8 degrees .
