your experience

Amsterdam’s Light Festival is celebrating 10 years this year and features over 20 unique artworks along the route.

Board an eco-friendly electric boat at the meeting point. As you cruise Amsterdam’s canals, be dazzled by the light show spectacle. The artworks displayed this year include public favorites and the most memorable works of the past decade. The theme is 'Celebrate Light.' It is a reference to the fact that the festival can be celebrated together again. After all, in the previous edition, boat trips and walking routes were barred due to the coronavirus restrictions.

As you float along the eastern part of Amsterdam, treat yourself to unlimited drinks and savor delicious Christmas bread and biscuits. Once you near the Heritage Canals of the city, you can see the 20 light artworks, and pass by the Amsterdam Zoo and Maritime Museum. The skipper and hostess will give you some live commentary about the canals and landmarks, and offer some tips to have a better experience of the city.

At the end of 75 minutes, you will be dropped back to the starting point.
