What you'll do

Don’t miss out on the annual canal event! During the Amsterdam FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS (28 November to 19 January 2020), the city is illuminated by international light artists showcasing their artwork throughout the city center. Hundreds of designers and architects submitted their ideas and 20 artworks have been chosen. Come and join us on our 75-minutes canal cruise and get a first class view of the open air light art exhibition while enjoying a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate. We follow a special route to see the best of the Light Exhibition. The Festival of Lights is one of the 10 best winter festivals in Europe —The Guardian We sail in a sloop with heating, heated seat cushions, silent electric motor, the ideal sloop to discover the canals of Amsterdam. The boat is partially covered with a hood so you can sit dry. Make sure you wear (warmer) clothing that matches the weather. See you on board!
