Evening Canal Cruise
Explore the canals of Amsterdam in the evening, passing many landmarks and toasting this magical city with a glass of wine and cheese.
Approximate Duration1.5 Hours
Spread out over 70 islands, this cosmopolitan city boasts 60 miles of canals and 1000 bridges. As early as the 13th century, tiny ships sailed from here into the challenging Zuider Sea, and by the 15th century Amsterdam was renowned as a major trading center and controlled the country's finances, a trend that remains to this day.
You will view the city center from a completely different perspective as you glide past Middle Age corners where regular transport can't go. Lined by trees and monumental buildings, the famous crescent-shaped Herengracht,
Keizergracht and Prinsengracht Canals provide the perfect setting for your leisurely cruise. Although many canal-front houses have been converted into offices, shops and restaurants, there are still many functioning as private residences.
During your ride, sit back, relax and enjoy wine, beer or soft drinks along with Dutch cheese and crackers.
The weather in the lowlands can change rapidly so bring umbrella and sunscreen.
