What to expect
Take part in this comprehensive experience in Amsterdam. Thanks to this option you'll combine two of the city's top attractions: a one-hour canal cruise and admission to XtraCold Icebar.
Visit one of Amsterdam's coolest bars, XtraCold Icebar that is comprised of more than 30 tons of ice from the walls to the counter to the furniture to the glasses, showcasing an ice sculpture display that rotates every six months. The bar maintains a temperature of -10°C, and you will be provided with appropriate thermal clothing upon arrival. Inside you will experience the thrill of the special 4D Ice Xperience: a movie projected in a room with a special floor and a wind chill effect.
Seeing Amsterdam by boat is practically mandatory during a visit and your one-hour canal cruise takes you through the city's charming UNESCO-protected canal district. Feast your eyes on the elegant Golden-Age-era merchants’ houses, fabulous gables, beautiful churches, the iconic Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) and many more highlights. Your audio guide on the newly branded boat is available in 18 languages.
