Full description
Paddle through the heart of Amsterdam and discover the city on a fun and active tour. Pass bridges, beautiful town houses, and famous museums. Experience the city from the water on a 2-hour paddle boarding tour along its canals and the river Amstel. Your tour begins in a quiet section of canal so you can get used to the paddle board. Once you feel safe, you'll cross the Amstel and hit the city. Admire stunning houses along the river and paddle through the network of canals and bridges. Depending on the group's skill level, paddle level head back via the Red Light District or de Oude Waal. Both locations have plenty of highlights to check out. The last part of the tour takes you past the Nautical Museum and a replica 18th-century ship, before finishing up back at the original meeting point.

I’v visited Amsterdam many times and this is by far the best experience to say the least. SUP in the canals of AMS allowed me to see the city from a different angel, and the images I saw are very different. Getting the feet wet also helped me to get connected to the city in a different way. Special thanks to my tour guide Elaine who knows the city and the buildings very well. We had a wonderful time in the canals together. I would highly recommend this activity and the tour to others have have not experienced it yet. George

This was an amazing way to see Amsterdam. I was a first time paddle boarder but Morene is a great teacher! I would highly recommend it.
