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.

Not the easiest of laces to fine, more so when your way at the other of the end of town, but hey its worth the long walk.. very well run with all the extra bits to make it orthentic,what i liked best was that once you were in the ice room even though people were waiting to come in they put no pressure on you to leave... would be great if someone else was doing the photos for you...all in all would recommend this on anyone's trip.. great valu also...

We loved the icebar! You receive a welcome drink but they are very light on the alcohol- definitely hit a pub on the way! Very fun especially for college kids!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

canal cruise was a chance to get away from the hassle n bustle of Amsterdam.
Icebar you can go into before your allocated time n have a drink with your token. Jacket n gloves provided. It's easy to find..look out for it on the cruise, it's situated on the right side opposite the ballet theatre. You can't miss the polar bears outside!

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.
