The Amsterdam Light Festival seen from an open boat!

Sadly the Amsterdam Light Festival has ended. Want to see Amsterdam from the water? Click here. The next edition takes place in December 2020 – January 2021.

With the Amsterdam Light Festival Open Boat Tour, you experience the Amsterdam Light Festival in a unique way! The artworks will absolutely assure a top-notch view. On the open boat, you can experience the art from up close. You will navigate so closely past the light art that you can almost touch it! Bring your best camera, because this boat tour screams pictures!

The shipper of the Amsterdam Light Festival Open Boat is also your guide and is full of tales about the festival and about the city. The boat’s size makes it cozy as well as highly maneuverable. You will share the boat and the special experience with a small group of festival visitors. There’s no need to worry about the cold either, as we’ll have you wrapped up in a warm blanket. Enjoy this heart-warming canal cruise!
