Tours Culture & history Activities Art Snow & winter sports Culinary & nightlife Reseller exclusions Things to do at Night Nature & adventure Rentals

During the short days and long dark nights in winter, Amsterdam becomes a place of magic and wonder. 20 light artworks will be shown in and around the city’s canals, which you can discover privately onboard a silent electric boat.


  • Experience 20 of the art installations directly from the canals.
  • Hear unique insights right from the source, from artists featured over the years
  • Sail on a small boat, getting close to the light sculptures
  • Guided by an artist. Your captain is not only a guide but an artist himself.
  • Private atmosphere. Enjoy this tour with your lover or a small group of friends.
  • Relax in a cosy, intimate boat with a maximum of 10 guests onboard


Set off on a small boat tour including gluhwein (mulled wine), a panoramic view of the city, and a front-row seat to wonderful art exhibitions. Your agile boat will allow you to get up close to many of these magical installations. Your guide has been following this festival closely for the last 5 years and knows all of its ins and outs. With your guide, you can discuss the artist’s inspiration, including what moves them and what they wanted to express through their works. You can share ideas, insights, and opinions, and can hopefully walk away from this experience more inspired, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about art and what it offers.


3 different typical Dutch sweets (caramel Dutch waffels, Dutch cookies, and a surprise delicacy) Gluwein (mulled wine) to warm you from the inside out A selection of winter teas to keep you warm Heated seats, blankets, and warm gluhwein
