Make your own way to the departure pier in central Amsterdam, and board your electric sightseeing boat.
Find a comfortable spot in either the heated open or semi-indoor seating areas, and if you wish, make use of the pillows and blankets. Then, enjoy the views of Amsterdam by night from the water as you set sail along the city's 16th-century canals. Your cruise follows the ‘Water Colors’ boat route of the Amsterdam Lights Festival, passing spectacular light sculptures that celebrate the city, and its history and culture.
Drink in the views of the illuminated installations and projections, all of them shining out from the canal sides, bridges, and monuments. Sip on warming hot chocolate or mulled wine (glühwein) from the bar, and take photos of the beautiful artworks as they pass.
While you sail, listen to the informative onboard commentary, learning about the creative thinking behind the artworks and the international contemporary artists who have created them. Your solar- and eco-powered electric boat runs at near-silent levels, so you can comfortably hear every word of the commentary.
After approximately 75 minutes on the water, moor back at the original departure pier, bringing your cruise experience to a close.
