Winters in Amsterdam are truly spectacular, with the annual Amsterdam Lights Festival transforming the city through its striking light shows. There’s no better way to see these epic light installations than from the water, aboard a canal cruise boat.
Take the Amsterdam Water Colors Cruise and experience the colourful and immersive light art, created by local as well as international artists. The 75-minute cruise gives you a ringside view of the various light sculptures, projections and installations scattered around the city. The artists have collaborated on this year’s theme ‘The Medium is the Message,’ the famous statement by the Canadian scientist Marshall McLuhan.
Keep yourself warm in the heated boats and enjoy onboard commentary as you see the radiant city pass you by.

It was a great expierece overall. But I was expecting to get into a boat where I can open windows and take some good photographs. But I guess that was luck based, so I got into...Asema Hassan, Germany, 08/Jan/2017
