CPH Light Festival

Experience the light in the dark

Back in 2019

Stromma, Canal Tours, is one of the official partners of Copenhagen Light Festival - the city’s new festival to show the city in a new way. The concept is known from Amsterdam Light Festival where both visitors and citizens gather to explore the light installations and especially the effects the lights have on the canals. In Copenhagen 30-40 unique light instalments will light up the city, particularly along the water fronts. Moreover, 10 existing and permanent installments, which have been nominated or won awards, also shine a light in the dark.

Join a tour through the canals and harbor after the sun has set. In February, the darkness replaces the long bright summer nights, but this year that is changing. Copenhagen Light Festival is shining a light through the darkness with poetic, amazing, surprising and meditative lights along the canals and harbor. Artists have created unique light installments along the waterfront and on the 45 min tour you will hear about the different works, artist and their thoughts behind, while you sit back and relax.

The tour departs from Ved Stranden, where the instalment “Twilight Reflections” light up the pier and highlights the water’s unsettled life.

The winter has made its present known in Copenhagen and in the canals, where the ice is affecting our operation.
We are following the situation closely, but as of now, the planned Copenhagen Light Festival tours tonight and Friday at 19.00 will be possible.
However, the tours will most likely be 20-30 minutes longer. The original duration is 45 min. and we now expect the tour duration to be up to 1 hour and 15 min.

We look forward to welcoming all onboard – and do not worry, the boat is covered and heated.
