You will be taken on an amazing tour through the most beautiful canals in the city. EXPLORE AMSTERDAM’S CANALS WITH ONE OF OUR KAYAKING TOURS! Kayaking dates from thousands of years ago; the first Kayaks were built and used by the people that today we call Eskimos. They used driftwood or the remaining skeleton of whales to construct the kayak, and seal skin to cover the body. The name translates literally to “hunter’s boat” and its main purpose was for hunting and fishing. Kayaking has developed into a popular sport. Today people kayak for doing sport, recreation or entertainment. Not all waters are suitable for this activity, as changes in water levels can make be tricky sometimes. The best places for this activity are canals, lakes and rivers. So Amsterdam is a perfect place for kayaking! WHY IS KAYAKING IN AMSTERDAM GOOD? Because it’s the perfect way to enjoy the canals! The city has over 100km of canals, known as Grachten, and the canal ring was named on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010. Not to mention that Amsterdam has over 1,500 bridges and over 90 islands, which creates a beautiful and peaceful setting for travelling the waterways. It is for this reason that Amsterdam is nicknamed the Venice of the North. Kayaking here is perfect because of the wide range of water routes. You can leave the city behind and take the route straight into nature.

I am excited to be a part of the GetMyBoat movement in making boats more accessible and affordable to others. I hope to get out on the water more and help boating grow.
