Kayak National Park & Giethoorn: Small Public Tour from Amsterdam (Coronaproof)
Corona-proof tour with social distancing at all times.
Enjoyment starts in the minivan, when you watch the landscape of Netherlands’ newest province Flevoland pass by, that was built on reclaimed land, as your guide friendly shares interesting information with you.
Upon arrival at National Park Weerribben Wieden, the kayaks are ready to be taken out on the water. Your guide leads the route of max. 1.5 - 2 hrs through the nature reserve. With over 24,000 acres, is the largest contiguous low peat bog area in North-West Europe. A labyrinth of ponds, lakes, ditches, mysterious-looking swamp forests, vast reed plots and flowery meadows.
Then your guide takes you to Giethoorn, the village without roads or 'Venice of the North'. Here you have some personal time to explore the village by foot, take a break, or experience Giethoorn from the water (use your free boat ride ticket). Explore the gemstone museum!
Back in Amsterdam you're dropped off at the same place as where you started the tour.
