Unique experience! Walk off the beaten path. Quaint villages, draw bridges, islands, castles & more!


Hike the amazing lush green Dutch country side. Go off the beaten path. Enjoy: dikes, canals, cows and windmills. Visit quaint little villages. Drink coffee with the locals. On route you'll see old fortresses, houseboats, draw bridges, seasonal flowers & more!

We start at your accommodation in Amsterdam. We drive by car to Weesp, the start of the hike.

First we explore this lovely town with draw bridges, canals, and a fort. We continue walking along the river Vecht with stunning house boats into the flat lush green country side.

After 1, 5 hour of walking you arrive at the borough of Muiden. First it is time for a delicious lunch, before we explore the medieval castle Muiderslot. Learn about the interesting history and enjoy the views from the castle over the water.

While you explore the castle I pick-up the car from Weesp. Together we drive from Muiden to your hotel in Amsterdam.

A Recent Review of this tour

Stefka was a great tour guide, very informative and personable. Although the weather was not ideal, the tour and walk was pleasant and comforting. I visit Amsterdam often for work, and will definitely contact her when in town again for more adventures!
