An active nature excursion close to Amsterdam.
During a Wetlands Safari , in business since 1995, will guide you through a 17th century landscape, through villages that still are built on land and water. In this unique watery landscape dominated by dense reed lands, you will watch numerous water fowl and singing birds. Enjoy the wonderful, spicy smelling waterplants with their fascinating flowers.
In canoes you will explore far into the moorland-meadows. Where possible, we will get out of the canoe for a small walk in the reed lands. An expert guide, English speaking, will inform you about plants as sundew ( carnivorous plant) and wildlife such as the black-tailed godwit and the origins as well as the origins of this special landscape. A landscape that inspired Holland’s most famous painters back in the Golden Age, painters like Rembrandt and Ruysdael.
So turn your back to Amsterdam and face the wetlands of Waterland. Take your casual clothing from your suitcase and book a Wetlands Safari. For environmental reasons the group size is limited.
