On holiday in Giethoorn

A holiday in Giethoorn is the best way to enjoy peace, space and nature. Located on National Park Weerribben-Wieden, the village is a beautiful place for a weekend getaway with your family or friends. Discover the flora and fauna of the area via a boat trip and learn everything about the village, nature and the rich history of the region!

Sailing on an exploration

A holiday in Giethoorn of course includes a boat trip on the water. The sailing routes take you through the village through the canals, to National Park Weerribben-Wieden and back to the picturesque village with beautiful farms and bridges! 

You can choose from many different ways of sailing so there is always something fun for you! The small whisper boats are equipped with an electric motor, so you can enjoy the surroundings in complete silence. Need something a little more luxurious? Then go for a sloop. A sloop has a steering wheel and is equipped with cushions where fellow passengers can enjoy more space. Where Venice has the traditional gondola, the punter is that for Giethoorn. These boats are propelled by the Punterboom, a large wooden stick that is placed on the bottom to push the boat forward! With this way of sailing you will have a whole experience!

More than just sailing

Besides sailing, Giethoorn has much more to offer in terms of activities. See if you have an inner Robin Hood inside you at archery, win from your friends at miniature golf, or go to a higher level in the climbing forest!
