Romantic Night Canal Cruise in Amsterdam

Would you like to do something special in Amsterdam with your lover? In wintertime days are short and night comes early. When the sun has set thousands of lights are turned on, the gorgeous merchant houses twinkle in darkness, the lights glitter on the world-famous canals, and the city comes alive with nocturnal activity. This gives way to a moment of wonder and romance making it a truly magical place. 

On this Amsterdam night canal tour, we will take you on a little adventure through this intimate landscape. Picture yourself in Amsterdam when the night has fallen. All the bridges light up and you and your loved one sit closely together with a warm glass of mulled wine in your hand and a warmly heated boat.

Our small, comfortable and quiet electric boat will make it feel you are the only ones cruising the Amsterdam canals. Nestle under warm blankets and drift past the impressive 17th-century canal houses, underneath the famous Amsterdam bridges and see how the locals live in their houseboats

While you listen to the sound of the rippling water, your captain and guide shares heartwarming stories. Think of Amsterdam legends and tales of love, and sharing fascinating details about the streets and architecture of this unique city. Often accompanied by a selected song that makes the experience complete. We promise, after your evening canal cruise, we will leave you and your partner set for a cosy night together. And yes, cruising the Amsterdam canals at night is as romantic as it sounds.

My husband and I loved this experience

My husband and I loved this experience. We went after dark (recommended), as the lights on the canals and buildings after dark were very comfy and romantic. Rocco has some pretty cool stories to tell. Super glad we did it.

My husband and I had a lovely evening on Rocco’s boat tour

My husband and I had a lovely evening on Rocco’s boat tour. It was intimate and we really enjoyed the stories and music along the journey. I’m so happy we did this tour over a large boat tour that was cheaper. Rocco crafted a wonderful night and presented Amsterdam to us in a beautiful light. Thank you, Rocco!
