  Paddan tour
by MickeH

In every city that have canals and big waterfronts there is also some kind of boat tour to let you see the city from the perspective of it's waterways. Gothenburg is off course no exception.

Here you can take a tour with the Paddan boats. Padda meaning toad. 'nough said...

They are big flat open boats that take you through the canals and into the harbour. Open boat, open water, windy city. If you do the math you find that the answer is to dress warm or choose a warm day, otherwise it can get very cold.

This tour gets a very mixed reception from people who takes it. From a wast of time and money to a really great experience. But hey, it can't be too difficult to understand pretty much what will happen on a sightseeing tour. It's not an action-tour. If that's what you are after, look elsewere.

Address: Kungsportsbron
Directions: Go to Kungsportsplatsen and walk towards Avenyn. Stop on the bridge. See the boats. Understand that you are there. Say hurray and do a little jig.
