Enjoyment starts in the minivan on the way to the province Overijssel, home to picturesque Giethoorn and Weerribben Wieden National Park, when you leave the busy city behind you with you own group (or family) of 7. Watch the landscape of the province of Flevoland, built on reclaimed land, pass by. Upon arrival at the nature reserve, the kayaks are ready. After getting comfortable, your tour guide leads the ‘way’: a route of 2.5 - 3.5 hours through the nature reserve. With over 24,000 acres, it’s the largest contiguous low peat bog area in North-West Europe. A labyrinth of ponds, lakes, ditches, mysterious-looking swamp forests, vast reed plots and flowery meadows; a nursing room for special plant and animal species. After the kayak trip, your guide drives you in 20 min to Giethoorn, where you have free time to explore the town by foot, take a break, or use your free pass for a 1hr boat ride through the village canals.
