  • Overview & Itinerary


    Board a canal boat for a traditional river cruise through the maze of canals that run through the wonderful city of Amsterdam. Once the most prosperous nation of Europe and a leader in European trade, science and art, the rich history of the country is mirrored in the intricate facades of the houses, beautiful churches and bridges of Amsterdam and of course, in the art of the Dutch Masters.

    Experience Amsterdam in its purest form; as a seaport, and soak up the urban atmosphere that so seamlessly mixes old and new.

    From the canal you will have the perfect view of many beautiful churches, rising proudly towards the sky on the riverbanks. You will see merchants’ houses and warehouses which date back to the 16th and 17th centuries, the so-called Golden Age.

    A unique opportunity, the XtraCold Ice Bar in Amsterdam gives guests the chance to enter a bar made entirely of ice. At a temperature of -10 degrees Celsius, the Ice Bar is decorated with ice sculptures and the walls, stools, bar, and glasses are all carved completely out of ice. Two drinks and one welcome cocktail are included in your visit.


    Board your cruise boat at Damrak 26 and explore the Venice of the North with its 90 islands, 1,500 bridges and one hundred kilometres of canals in total. On your cruise you will pass through the seaport of Amsterdam, which used to be the main port of the Dutch East India Company – imagine the colossal trading ships sailing in with cargos of silk, cotton, salt and exotic spices. You will also pass residential areas, with many houses finished during the Golden Era, to get a feel for the way of life of the Amsterdammers. The cruise will take approximately 1 hour.

    After your cruise visit the thrilling Xtra Cold Ice Bar. Consisting of two parts, XtraCold Ice Bar first welcomes guests into the “cool” lounge where they can eat, drink, and relax in a cosy atmosphere. Then, after donning thermal gloves and clothing to protect from the extreme temperatures, guests are brought into the Ice Bar itself where they are given two complimentary drinks and are shown a special 3D movie. It is an experience unlike any other in Amsterdam!

    Cruise offers audio commentary in English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.
