Boat trip Amsterdam

A boat trip through the canals of Amsterdam is one of the best ways to get to know the capital of the Netherlands. You’re free to roam the city on the scattered waterways all throughout Amsterdam with your very own Sloepdelen boat. If you prefer not getting lost, we suggest following one of the following routes.

2 hour Canaltour

The city of Amsterdam is at its most beautiful when viewed from another perspective, a boat on the canals! You can take the  2 hour route through the city center of Amsterdam. During this trip you will see many of the highlights such as the Anne Frank house, the Royal Theatre,  the Hermitage, Nemo, the Red Light District (Wallen) and the Brouwersgracht.

It can be quite busy on the Amsterdam Canals so take into account that it can take a bit longer!

3 hour Canaltour

This route will take you along all the good places Amsterdam has to offer. This route will take you 3 hours along hot-spots like the Prinsengracht and the Amstel, but also through the western (Jordaan & Westerpark) and eastern part (Plantagebuurt) of Amsterdam, which both have their own unique vibe. This is route is the ultimate balance between the views of the old city of Amsterdam through the canals and the little bit more quiet neighbourhoods, for more relaxed sailing.

4 hour Canaltour

Take this 4 hour safari through Amsterdam which leads you to all kinds of interesting places. For example this route will take you along the City-Zoo ‘Artis’ you might even spot some exotic creatures. Artis is situated at the Eastern end of Amsterdam and is part of the “plantagebuurt” , a green and more spacious part of Amsterdam with some different architecture. Of course this route takes you along all the places you NEED to see in Amsterdam which also contains the beautiful old-west of Amsterdam.
