DescriptionDepart Amsterdam and travel to the enchanting village of Giethoorn in the north of the Netherlands for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Known as the 'Venice of the Netherlands,' the village is notable for its many canals and complete lack of roads. Upon arrival, explore the fairytale village, where only 2,800 people live, on a 1-hour guided boat tour in English. Experience the idyllic scenery from a unique perspective on a leisurely trip through the canals. Watch people punt the traditional flat-bottom boats over the canals as you go. Although most transport in the village is by water, there is also now a cycling path. Explore the beautifully-preserved village by bike or on foot, and see how each farmhouse is built on a small man-made island. Wander the narrow footpaths to discover more than 150 bridges, and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the village.
