Picture yourself on a boat on the Amstel River, seeing Amsterdam illuminated with spectacular light artworks. What's more, you get to munch on snacks and sip on your favorite drinks along the way. That is exactly what we have in store for you on this 90-minute boat tour of the Amsterdam Light Festival!

From the heated boat, enjoy unparalleled views of the light art while you relax and take in the glowing sights. The almost 6-km-long route is designed in such a way that you can see all the works of art, both on the quay and along the canals. Onboard, you'll find snacks such as cheeses, sausages, and nuts. Drinks are also included; options include wine, beer, and soft drinks.

Starting at Prins Hendrikkade, the canal boat takes you through the Weesperbuurt and Plantage neighborhoods, where you can find all the art on display. You also have the company of an audio guide (available in English and Dutch) that fills you in on the back story behind each beautiful light installation.
