Paddle through Holland’s Waterland area on a 5-hour canoe experience from Amsterdam. With an expert guide, travel north to Waterland, home to time-warp villages, quaint waterways and lush pastures. Then, board a canoe and paddle around the idyllic waterways. Enjoy the sound of birdsong and scents of wild plants; glide past reedbeds and weatherboarded villages, and hear about the region’s traditional way of life. Stop for a swim if the weather allows, and visit an island for a picnic of local produce. Numbers limited to 10 for a small-group experience.
What to Expect
Start your guided 5-hour outdoor adventure from Amsterdam with a short 15 minutes bus ride to a small Dutch village. Enjoy a beverage at a local cafe upon arrival and start our canoe tour afterwards.

Paddle through Old Holland's nature and villages, see the Dutch way of life and learn about the people in The Netherlands. You will learn about Waterland from your local guide, who will also be happy to answer all your questions. Explore the reed-lands and listen to signing birds while smelling the local plants. If the weather allows, the tour will also stop for a swim, so bring your swim gear with you!

Enjoy a picnic lunch including local products from the area you're paddling through one of the islands -- it might be a bit wet here so be prepared for your shoes to get wet and dirty.

Back at the cafe you will have time to enjoy another beverage before taking the bus back to Amsterdam where your outdoor adventure ends.
