Giethoorn: Venice of the North

Approximately an hours’ drive from the city of Groningen is the world famous town of Giethoorn. It is often referred to as the “Venice of the North”. Many homes are built on islands, and are only accessible by crossing a bridge.

Navigating in Giethoorn is only possible in so called “whisper boats” (small or large, electrically driven) or with punt boats, which you navigate yourself with a “punt pole”, or in a tourist vessel.

You only have to select a “whisper” boat, a punt boat, or a tourist vessel. The Netherlands is well known because of its relationship to water. In Giethoorn you will be able to experience the effects of abounding in water, and the usage of wetlands, over the centuries.

You will be driven to Giethoorn by luxury touring car, and upon arrival you will be greeted with a “welcome beverage”. Shortly after, you will navigate in your vessel of choice. After your amazing boating experience, there will be a delicious barbecue at one of the prime locations in these exceptional surroundings.
