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.
