The meeting point is Metro station NOORD or in front of the Frisse NeusToer Dorpsstraat 21, Watergang. You will meet the guide holding the well-known Wetlands Safari sign. Here you leave with public transport to Waterland. We start at the guide's house, where we enter the canoes. You will first receive some instruction. NB: It is important that you are fit to participate as you will be paddling in your own Canadian canoe.

Along the way, the guide will tell you about the area and after this canoe trip, you will understand better why the houses in Amsterdam are on stilts. We see polder mills and with good weather you can swim in a peat lake. The nature reserve through which we pass focuses entirely on the meadow birds such as black-tailed godwit and lapwing. These can be heard everywhere, especially in the spring. In the month of July, the area changes to a purple glow from various blooming flowers. If you are lucky you can see the farmers at work moving cows and machines by boat.
