Off-the-beaten path in Amsterdam: Giethoorn by boat and National Park by Kayak.

Off-the-beaten path in Amsterdam: Giethoorn by boat and National Park by Kayak.

Enjoyment starts in the minivan, when you watch the landscape of Netherlands’ newest province Flevoland pass by, that was built on reclaimed land, as your friendly guide from a multiple award winning tour operator shares interesting information with you. Upon arrival at the national park, the kayaks are ready to be taken out on the water. Your guide leads the route of ± 1.5 hrs through the nature reserve that is the largest contiguous low peat bog area in North-West Europe. A labyrinth of ponds, lakes, ditches, mysterious-looking swamp forests, vast reed plots and flowery meadows. Then your guide takes you to Giethoorn, the village without roads or 'Venice of the North'. Embark on a private whisper boat for the small tour group and have your guide show you the marvellous views from the water. After the boat tour you have some personal time to wander around in the village (enjoy some delicious ice cream!) before meeting with your guide again for the transfer back to Amsterdam.

Stand Up Paddleboard Rental in Amsterdam

Stand Up Paddleboard Rental in Amsterdam

Supping is a perfect work-out and is very fun to do. It is suitable for everyone, the boards are long and wide making them very stable. So you don’t just fall into the water. Supping is very easy and it is also possible to rent a sup without experience. You have never supped before? No problem. Then we will give you a couple of instructions before you enter the water. We rent out Sups from the brand Red Paddle from our beautiful location near the Amstel next to the Berlage Bridge. Red Paddle is the absolute top brand when it comes to SUPS, the boards can be inflated more and are therefore sturdier and more stable than sups from other brands.
