Giethoorn Day Trip from Amsterdam

Amsterdam – Giethoorn – Enkhuizen Dijk – Amsterdam

Passing through the traditional Dutch landscape we travel to Giethoorn, the Dutch Venice, for about 1.5 hours. It becomes very evident in this picturesque canal town how the Dutch survive in, and on, the water. Cars are not allowed in Giethoorn; little has changed down the centuries. On foot and by boat, you’ll enjoy this wonderfully preserved town. We’ll pass skilfully restored farmhouses on the included one-hour boat tour. You will have free time to lunch and self-guided exploration after boat tour. Your guide can give you some tips on where to eat and what to see.

After lunch we continue on to an impressive 20 km long dike in the Ijsselmeer, one of Western Europe’s largest lakes. You see water and drained land at left and right-polders in Dutch. Before we return to Amsterdam we will make a photo stop here.
