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.

On a sunny day, nothing’s more fun than taking a pedal boat through Amsterdam!

The local tour provider supports Amsterdam City Swim. On Sunday 8th September 2019, more than three thousand sports people will jump into the canals during the 8th edition of the Amsterdam City Swim. This annual event aims to generate attention for the muscle disease ALS (aka Lou Gehrig's disease) and to raise funds for research into this underexposed disease. In addition to an annual financial contribution, the local tour provider supports this year's event with a special campaign, and will donate €0.50 to the Amsterdam City Swim Foundation for each pedal boat ticket sold.
