Full description
Winter nights in the UNESCO-listed historic center are spectacularly illuminated during the Amsterdam Light Festival. Marvel at the city's dazzling display of colorfully lit landmarks and fantastic light projections and sculptures along the charming waterways from the vantage point of a river barge. From the open boat, you will have the best view of the picturesque capital and light art. Thanks to its shape, the small boat is not just easy to maneuver but also very cozy. Furthermore, because it operates on electricity so it is sustainable.

Soak up the joyful festive spirit as you sail along the canals during the light festival. Winter's dark and gloom are instantly cheered with delightful installations along the water. Take it all in from your seat on an open boat under a warm blanket with a complimentary hot beverage. Listen to the engaging captain, who will also act as your guide, as you cruise by magical works by renowned artists. The use of clever design and modern technology creates a gleaming wonderland.
