Guided Sunset Canoe Tour and Dinner in Waterland from Amsterdam
Canoe the canals of Holland’s Waterland region at sunset on this 4-hour trip from Amsterdam. Travel with a guide to this rural area, and paddle past reed beds, meadows and picture-postcard villages. Savor the sound of birdsong and scents of wild flowers, glide through landscapes once painted by Rembrandt, and learn how the flat countryside was reclaimed from the sea. Take a swim if the weather allows, and finish with a picnic dinner overlooking a lake and the area’s wooden windmills. Numbers limited to 10 people for a small-group experience.
What to Expect
After meeting in the afternoon in central Amsterdam, your guide will take you on a local bus to a small village close-by.

Enjoy a beverage upon your arrival in the Dutch countryside and board your canoe afterwards for an exciting sunset ride through the wetlands. It is an easy paddle and the perfect tour to get away from the busy city. Paddle for about 1.5 hours and see the area that inspired Rembrandt for his paintings. Passing original Dutch wooden houses in Waterland, this Eco tour is the best way to learn about and see why Amsterdam is build the way it is.

The tour will stop close to a lake for a dinner picnic. Here you can also go for a swim before you paddle back to the starting point for about 15 minutes. A beverage will await you at the end of your canoe paddling trip before the local bus takes you back to Amsterdam.
