What You Can Expect

Amsterdam's Icebar Xtracold with Optional Canal Cruise

Amsterdam's Canals

Easily the coolest attraction in town, Amsterdam Icebar Xtracold is made completely from ice — with frozen furniture, walls and even drinking glasses. On arrival in the lounge, you’re greeted with a complimentary cocktail and provided a thermal poncho and mittens before you step into the frosty bar with a temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 10 degrees Celsius)!

Once inside, spend 30 minutes relaxing at leisure amid the cozy yet icy ambiance. Enjoy your choice of either two Smirnoff cocktails or two Heineken beers on the house. Take part in a 3D experience riding over icebergs and along steep cliffs in a frozen landscape that emulates that of 16th-century Dutch navigator and Arctic explorer Willem Barentsz.

If you wish, upgrade your experience with an optional canal cruise (see below). You can choose to do both activities on the same day or on alternate days. Simply let the local operator know your preference when redeeming your voucher at the ticket kiosk in central Amsterdam.

Optional Amsterdam Canal Cruise
Make your way to the pier near Amsterdam Central Station and board the glass-topped sightseeing boat for your 1-hour luxury cruise. As you glide effortlessly through the city, you’ll see countless top Amsterdam attractions like the affluent Golden Bend (Gouden Bocht) neighborhood, the Anne Frank House and the Seven Bridges of Reguliersgracht. Pass the pretty gabled houses that Amsterdam is so well known for, and cruise underneath the Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) while your audio guide informs you of interesting facts and stories. Cruises depart every 15 or 30 minutes, depending on the season.
