De Weerribben

Discovery of Nature and cultural history in National Park De Weerribben

National Park “De Weerribben” is one of the most beautiful National Parks of The Netherlands. It’s current swampy presentation is the result of peat-moor excavations resulting in an assembly of small canals and strips of land. “De Weerribben” is one of the most important swamp area’s of Europe. Here you will find no cars.

Water village Giethoorn is, like National Park “de Weerribben”, the result of peat-moor excavations. Giethoorn however has developed more to a site of cultural heritage. Giethoorns characteristic canals and it’s typical farmhouses are completely different to the National Park. Here cars are not allowed.

In this tour we will make the comparison between natural heritage versus cultural heritage as the result of one and the same activity. You will be surprised to see the difference. And the similarity.

We will start at the National Park where we go into the swamp for about 2 hours with a small electric boat. Then we will repeat this exercise in Giethoorn with a private boat trip of about 1,5 hours. In Giethoorn you will have time to stretch your legs along the canals.

In this tour a lunch will be included…home prepared, including Dutch cheeses….to be appreciated in open air (if weather permits).

 Included: Guiding, Dutch home made lunch, Mileage and fuel, rental boats, Overhead and taxes
Excluded: Toilet stops, Personal expenses and Banking costs money transfer for your booking
