LUXURY BOAT TOUR on the canals of Amsterdam and the IJ River

Enjoy a luxury boat tour Amsterdam with Rederij de Nederlanden on Amsterdam’s canals, the Amstel River and the IJ River.

As of May 1, 2019, we are sailing from a fantastic new location in Hot & Happening Amsterdam Noord: ‘De Groene Kaap’, near the NDSM terrain and the IJ canteen. Super accessible, both by car and public transport (ferry NDSM terrain from C.S. 5 delicious minutes).

Your guests will board a classic salon boat such as Het Wapen van Amsterdam (max 175 people) or Peter de Grote (max 70 people) and first sail past the “cutting edge” architecture on the IJ, such as building Pontsteiger, EYE Film Museum and the Kraanspoor building. Then we sail up the monumental Nieuwe Herengracht via the Scheepvaartmuseum, after which we cruise past the Hermitage and Koninklijk Theater Carré on the Amstel River while enjoying a delicious meal or appetizer.
