Know More about this tour

The elongated village Giethoorn is located in one of the largest areas of the Nature Association for, NP De Wieden . Along with the Weerribben it constitutes the largest continuous fenland NP areas in northern Europe.

Way back in time peat diggers took peat from the soil, leaving it to dry and later cut peat. In two large floods (1776 and 1825) this vulnerable drying banks were washed away and lakes arose around Giethoorn.

To transport the peat they dug ditches and canals that resulted in the typical village structure of Giethoorn. The traditional transportation for Giethoorn is the handmade wooden Gieterse Punter. (A small sailing barge) Today there is also the whisper boat. An easy to use, environment-friendly, noiseless electric version.

Furthermore Giethoorn is an excellent starting point for canoe trips through the area. Another possibility to appreciate Giethoorn from the water; a trip by (covered) boat. The village offers a number of special museums. And for a varying range of art, you are welcome in the various Giethoorn (art) galleries and see craftsmen at work.
