What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Canal Cruise Including Amsterdam's Xtracold Icebar

Amsterdam's Canals

Redeem your voucher at the ticket kiosk in central Amsterdam, and then follow the directions provided to the start point of your first activity. 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.

For your cruise by luxury glass-topped sightseeing boat, make your way to the canal stop near Amsterdam's Central Station. 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, a beautiful bridge commonly known as the Skinny Bridge, while your audio guide will tell you interesting facts and stories.

The second part of your combination ticket is Amsterdam's Xtracold Icebar. Easily the coolest attraction in town, the bar is made completely from ice – with frozen furniture, walls and even glasses! You’ll be given special thermal clothing and gloves to wear before you step into the frosty bar with a temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit (negative 10 degrees Celsius)! Once inside, spend 30 minutes relaxing at leisure, enjoying either a Smirnoff cocktail or Heineken beer; or take part in a 3D ride experience over icebergs and along steep cliffs in a frozen landscape.

Was a great way to see everything and then go back to visit the areas you liked most.

Canal cruise was very good. Recommend going in the evening as you can experience all the beautiful buildings lit up as well as the bridges. Icebar was a great experience, a must do just remember to grab gloves on your way in as we forgot! not so good when your holding a drink made of ice......... but overall well worth the money and a must.

Probably not the best place to go in sandals, lol

It was great, my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The drinks in actual ice glasses were really nice especially the vodka!

The bar outside the ice bar was also very nice and relaxed, we stayed for a few drinks after.

This was so much fun, the coats however were not what was pictured and we didn't get any type of hat to cover up with. iI had been 88 outside and we came in shorts, this cut our stay in the icebar down. The staff was excellent.

Great afternoon on a hen weekend. Just remember to dress for the occasion it is cold. Flip flops are not such a good idea. Hazelnut vodka shots are amazing

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Absolutely recommend this, the canal cruise was amazing helped by the beautiful sunshine we had, ice bar was brilliant, we didnt stay in too long as it really is soooo cold but u can stay as long as u want then go in to the other bar for your cocktail to warm up, we also stayed for a couple of beers.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Really good value for money. We did the canal trip in the day so that we could pick out areas to visit afterwards. There was a choice to sit inside or out.
The ice bar was fantastic. Get there for the time on your ticket however if you are a little Late that is ok. You get 2 drinks while inside in the ice and another when you return to the main bar. The viator voucher was really easy to exchange for the tickets and great value for money. A great weekend in Amsterdam was had by all.
