Go on a tour to remarkable Giethoorn! This village, also known as the little Venice of the Netherlands, is a fantastic option for a day trip from Amsterdam. A comfortable bus takes you from Amsterdam to Giethoorn and back again at the end of the day. The tiny village of Giethoorn is most well known for the fact that it has no roads, only canals. Its beautiful canals, picturesque wooden bridges, and farmhouses with centuries-old thatched roofs give it a unique fairy-tale vibe.
Because the village has no roads, you will explore it by boat. The Giethoorn canal cruise is included in the tour. But you’ll also have enough free time to go exploring on your own. On the way back to Amsterdam the bus will make a stop at the Afsluitdijk (Enclosing dike). This 32-kilometer long dike separates the North Sea and the Ijssel lake. From the viewing point on the dike, you’ll get a wondrous view of both the sea and the lake, there is water as far as you can look. Don’t forget your camera, because you’re going to want to capture this.
