Disembark and enjoy free time to further explore Giethoorn’s trails and paths, or ask your guide for recommendations for lunch (own expense).

Regroup for a visit to IJsselmeer (seasonal) to see the enclosing dam Afsluitdijk, admire the body of water and and learn more about the feat of engineering.
