Enjoyment starts on the way to picturesque Giethoorn and Weerribben National Park. Watch the landscape of Flevoland pass by, the province that is built on reclaimed land. The first stop is Giethoorn, or 'Venice of the North'. Giethoorn is unique in its own way and famous around the world.

Upon arrival, embark on your own private whisper boat and enjoy a guided tour of the village following the canal route. Or leave your guide 'ashore' and steer the boat yourself! Up to you! Next is the kayak tour experience in the nature reserve. Upon arrival, get comfortable in the kayak and follow your guide through the nature reserve. You decide for how long you want to kayak! Be surprised by the beauty of Dutch nature!
