Very good price for a very nice way of traveling through the city and nature. This is a really most-do in Utrecht, even white not-so-good-weather because there are "thousand" of bridges to keep you dry.

"This is the worst thing ever!", said one under 18 year old, so you know it is awesome! Easy to work with staff and a fun time. Maps/way may be a little hard to determine at times but getting lost was half the fun. Lots of interesting people down by the canals. Wifi spotty in the canals so it can... More

We were surprised about the cheap prices for such a wonderful activity in a sunny day. We got our canoe really quickly and started rowing right away. They will provide everything you need, like maps and waterproof bags for your stuff. The views from the canals are a different and beautiful way to see the city and you should definitely... More

We had an amazing trip through the Canals of Utrecht. For only 150 we hired a boat for 8 hours, as there fits 8 people in the boat is was a really reasonable price. We brought our own lunch and drinks and had an amazing day. The service was perfect. I really recomment a trip through the canals in a... More

We loved our day of kayaking the canals of Utrecht and were especially excited to go under the super low bridges. It was nice to paddle both in town and in nature. We were able to swim and also paddled to the pancake house. At a maximum price of 12 Euros per person we thought this was good value for... More

We got a 2-person kayak on a Sunday morning (the weekend of the Tour de France). Weather was perfect and we had the canals pretty much to ourselves. The team at Kanoverhuur was very nice and helpful, the price was right (20 something euros for 2hr) and we spent 2 awesome hours around the city. If you have the time,... More

I stumbled upon this kayak rental place and thoroughly enjoyed a one hour paddle around the canals. You keep taking left turns to make a big loop. The view changes as some of the canals are narrow with lots of bridges and others are wider and more like a river. Not many boats in the canals. Nice calm water as... More

If the weather is good this is the best thing to do in Utrecht. Go to the supermarket buy some snacks and hire a boat on the Gracht! The staff is super friendly and the service is good. You can go alone in a canoe or you can take up to eight people (I think) in a small motorboat to... More

Utrecht has some very beautiful canals that are wonderful to visit either on foot, on a bicycle or in a boat or canoe. We rented an electric boat for 8 people and really enjoyed the city, albeit at a very, very relaxed pace (the boat won't go faster than 4 or 5 km per hour, so you are liable to... More
