It's a change of scenery and a step back in time all in one!

Sick of the hustle and bustle of big cities? Join this day trip from central Amsterdam and head to Giethoorn in the Northeast of the Netherlands, sometimes known as the 'Little Venice'.

Here in this peaceful, picturesque corner of the Netherlands, you'll find boat-filled waterways, pretty footpaths, zero cars (they're banned here), and bicycle trails.
