Exploring the North Netherlands

A magical tour what allows you to visit two fairy-tale villages in only one day, the authentic village Giethoorn and Hasselt. Giethoorn, also named The Venice of the North, and only accessible by boat or by walking. Hasselt also named “Little Amsterdam “,a long forgotten Hanseatic city were time stood still and absolutely not known by tourist. On this journey, we drive through typically Dutch polder landscape, reclaimed land and almost all day you’ll find yourself below sea-level!

What to expect

Your private guide will drive directly to the picturesque village of Giethoorn  in about 90 minutes. The centre is car-free and the only way to get around is by boat or on foot. Your guide will change himself into a captain and invites you for a private one hour boat tour through Giethoorn, in a typical “punter”, a small Dutch flat bottomed boat designed to sail in shallow waters. After this experience your guide invites you for a short walking tour, what allows you to see the village from a different way as from the waterside.  After visiting Giethoorn, you will drive through the countryside to Hasselt, a storybook village and not known by tourism. In Hasselt you will wander with your guide through the old town’s cobblestone streets and learn about its history and why its named “Little Amsterdam”
