What you'll do

I'll take you on a canoe ride through a small, quiet village located just 7 minutes from Amsterdam Noord. We'll paddle near houses and areas filled with cows, sheep, and birds—it'll feel like you're back in the time of Rembrandt. Before heading back, we'll stop at an island and have a picnic with typical Dutch delicacies.
