Tour 6 Giethoorn “Venice of the North”

Please don't use the booking form. Just mail us with your wishes at

Tour number 6 departs every Wednesday and Sundays from March to October.

The Highlight of the day is undoubtedly – Giethoorn, described by the tourist operators as: “Venice of the North” it is of course – nothing like Venice. It is however a beautifully preserved village built in the middle of a swampy area. Each farmhouse is actually built on a small man-made island and the access to the village centre is traditionally done by boat. We will embark on a one hour guided cruise in the village centre, experiencing the idyllic beauty of this amazing place. In order to fully enjoy, take some time to wander the narrow walking paths on your own.
On the way to Giethoorn, we will visit some of the beautiful villages or little towns on the way. There are so many to choose from and each has its own unique charm. Places such as Enkhuizen, Urk, Elburg,Vollenhove, Blokzijl and many more, we each have our favorites and we would like to share them all with you. We will also drive through some of the most picturesque country-side this country has to offer.
We drive back to Amsterdam via the newly reclaimed province of Flevoland and the modern cities: Lelystad and Almere.
