Full description
Canal biking has been a top Amsterdam attraction since 1984. Paddle your way through the canals at your leisure and take the kids along for some great fun. They’re sure to enjoy the ride more than a standard Amsterdam canal cruise.

Discover Amsterdam’s main attractions at your own pace, passing by many of the city’s historic buildings along the way.

Choose a 1 or 1.5-hour rental and customize the route to your interests. See the Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, the Skinny Bridge, and the Amstel River, as well as other attractions such as the Mint Tower, St. Nicholas Church, the Golden Bend, the Royal Palace, the National Monument, Albert Cuyp Market, and the old city gates.

Had top experience!

Despite the fun activity, we had to wait a long time for the tickets. Because it was a sunny day, there was a long line at the entrance. Although we had a printed e-ticket and all information via e-mail on my phone, we had to wait in this line. I think that is a pity and unnecessary!
