What you'll do

Explore the countryside near Amsterdam with a canoe

I'll take you on a canoe ride through a small, quiet village located just 7 minutes from Amsterdam Noord. We'll paddle near houses and areas filled with cows, sheep, and birds—it'll feel like you're back in the time of Rembrandt. Before heading back, we'll stop at an island and have a picnic with typical Dutch delicacies.

Majel was an awesome guide and knew pretty much everything about what has to known for the experience and more! Loved to have my friends try and have the same yet unique experience I had with Majel.

Such a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing yet absolutely fascinating day out, just a short distance from the bustling centre of Amsterdam. The nature reserve is a really unique and fascinating environment, and Majel is a superb guide to the wildlife, plants and the special interaction of land and water that creates this iconically Dutch environment. Canoeing is a fun, engaging and very relaxing way to enjoy it too. If you're spending a few days in Amsterdam, this is a highly-recommended tour for a nice contrast to all the excitement and stimulation of being in the city.

I had a wonderful experience canoeing through the wetlands. So peaceful and calm. I learnt so much about the history and geography of Amsterdam and surrounding areas. Meeting up was straight forward and the canoeing was not too physical. A different perspective of the canal system from the city. Thoroughly enjoyed it
