Water Colors Cruise - Amsterdam Light Festival Cruise

November 28th 2014 - January 17th 2015

After such a successful 2013 edition, there was no question whether there would be another Amsterdam Light Festival this year! Join us on a cruise along the best routes to watch the spectacular light sculptures above and beside the canals. With even more artworks than last year, this is the perfect opportunity to take some stunning photographs of the watery reflections. The boat gives you the chance to get up close and personal and see everything from the best angle possible.

We guarantee a seat on the booked date and time with no extra costs!


During this 90-minute cruise our guide will tell you the story behind each artwork, including "Intrepid", which we proudly sponsor. You ll be able to relax and order drinks and snacks from a waiter on board and let the art come to you.
