This was the highlight of not only our Amsterdam visit, but our starting of a month Europe trip would not have been the same if we missed this activity.

I found Wetland Safari while watching a Rick Steve's Amsterdam special about two weeks before our arrival. I was shocked that it was so easy to book our event and so easily follow arrival directions for us novice European travelers. We were so fortunate to have Majel Tromp from the show be our guide and she was unbelievable. I'm not sure if she is the only guide or not but she was awesome!!

Don't worry about the strength for the boating activity; walking around Amsterdam city is more strenuous than the canoe rowing, so you will be fine. I personally wore swimming trunks to take advantage of jumping into the river at lunch which was beautiful (highly recommend doing the same). If you are looking at this site already... DO IT!! Your only regret will be that you didn't. Netherlands outside the city is spectacular. Good luck and have a blast!!! I would have paid tripled the price for this great adventure.

Blessed with blue skies and light winds, we enjoyed a morning exploring the canals around a small village in the outskirts of Amsterdam.
Much laughter at how 'El Capitain' was steering the ship.
Peace and quiet.
And a lovely lunch.
What more could you wish for?
Except maybe some mosquito repellent!

Loved it.

We had the best time exploring the Dutch countryside on its waterways in the north of Amsterdam. Majel was a great guide and everything was perfectly planned and prepared. Even when it rained a bit we had cover during our lunch. She is very knowledgable about the Dutch history and nature and answered all our questions. I would definitely recommend this trip.

The canoe is fun, the proximity to Amsterdam is unbeatable. Learning about the nature reserve and the wetlands and paddling in the tiny village canals was amazing.

If you are lucky you will see many birds and of course the cows!

Majel is enthusiastic and fun, it definitely rubs off on you. You won't be able to help get excited about the wetlands.

We took this tour 7 years ago and loved it so much that we had to do it again! We enjoyed our second time just as much as the first!! Majel is an excellent host and tour guide, with lots of information about the local environment. Take the tour, you'll be very happy you did!
