What to expect

See the Amsterdam Light Festival aboard an open boat tour and admire the light sculptures produced by artists as you cruise along the canals for 75-minutes with a live guide. Board the boat and wrap yourself up in a warm blanket and enjoy a delicious hot drink for a heart-warming evening out as your small and cozy boat glides through the canals allowing you to get really close to the specially designed light sculptures.

The skipper will double as your personal tour guide for the evening, hear all about the Amsterdam Light Festival, the art pieces and Amsterdam. Don’t mind asking him or her for more information, because they’re a treasure chest full of magical tales about the city and festival.

Take the best pictures of the one of a kind pieces, of course, ask your captain to go a bit slower to get the perfect photo.
