Luxurious canal cruise Amsterdam Light Festival

A canal cruise is the best way to discover the artworks of the Amsterdam Light Festival. The theme of this 8th edition of the ALF is “Disrupt!”. Our captain and hostess will guide you past the beautiful light artworks while enjoying a drink and a snack. They tell you fun facts about the festival, the artworks and the artists in Dutch and English in a casual way.

As our guest, you will lack nothing. With a glühwein or hot chocolate in hand, you can enjoy all the beauty that the canals, bridges and lights have to offer. If the weather is really bad, the boat can be completely or partially covered, but we try to keep the boat uncovered as much as possible. This way you can see the artworks clearly. We have e-heated blankets, so you can comfortably enjoy an unforgettable canal cruise through the illuminated canals of Amsterdam.

What can I expect from the tour?

  • The tour takes approximately 75 to 90 minutes
  • Make sure that you are present at the time stated on your ticket. You may have to wait 15 to 30 minutes. This is because our host will ensure that everyone gets a nice spot on one of our boats. We apologize in advance.
  • Departure and arrival of the tour are at the same location. Hopping on or off during the tour is only possible in exceptional cases.
  • Along the way you’ll see the works of art, about which our captain and/or host(ess) will tell you facts in an informal way.
