Explore the Dutch countryside by boat as you leave Amsterdam behind on a half-day tour. See the picturesque villages of Broek in Waterland, Zuiderwoude, Holysloot, and Uitdam, and explore the oldest Dutch peatlands as well.
What to Expect
A visit to Amsterdam and the Netherlands would not be complete without venturing into the lovely Dutch countryside. Head out from Amsterdam on an informative half-day tour of this picturesque region.
See old farms and typical green-timbered houses in one of the most beautiful and well-preserved areas outside of Amsterdam. This is a region well known for its old villages, local foods and cheeses, and centuries-old traditions.
The program begins with a short 20-minute ride to the countryside. When you arrive at the harbor you’ll board a boat for a 2-hour trip through the beautiful landscapes of Waterland.
Admire the moorland meadows, peatlands, old Dutch farms, marshlands, and the picturesque villages for which the area is known.
