Boat trip part 1 - Havenwater/Het IJ
The boat sails a beautiful route along the many architectural sights that the IJ is rich in, such as the Eye film museum, Overhoeks and the Bimhuis. The banks of the IJ tell a centuries-old story.
We sail to the Amstel via the Oosterdok and the new Herengracht.
Boat trip part 2 - the Amstel
We set course for Ouderkerk aan de Amstel. During the cruise we sail past the beautiful country houses that the wealthy of yesteryear kept. We make a stopover at restaurant Klein Kalfje to pick up a tasty snack (on boats without a toilet there is an opportunity for a sanitary stop). We then descend further down the Amstel to Ouderkerk aan de Amstel where the cruise ends at Loetje aan de Amstel for a delicious lunch or dinner.
