What To Expect

Amsterdam Icebar Xtracold:

Easily the coolest attraction in town, Amsterdam Icebar Xtracold is made completely from ice — with frozen furniture, walls and even drinking glasses. On arrival at your pre-booked time slot 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, relax at leisure amid the cozy yet icy ambiance. Enjoy your choice of either two Smirnoff cocktails or two Heineken beers on the house. 

Amsterdam Canal Cruise

Before you make your way to the pier near Amsterdam Central Station for your cruise, make sure you book your timeslot at the local office located at Damrak 26. At the booked time, board the glass-topped sightseeing boat for your 1-hour sightseeing 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.

The booking did not tell...
Susan_H, May 2023
The booking did not tell you that the canal boat was to sail miles away from the ice bar, this needs to made more clear. We managed to turn up for our ice bar on time thinking the canal cruise was in the same area. To be fair the canal cruise was honoured the following day just needs more clarity
No canal tour!!! Bad combination and no help
Tracy_B, Apr 2023
The ice bar was fine, but the information on how to achieve the tickets and a time for the canal tour were super confusing and we didn't use the canal portion of our tickets because it was too late to go find the ticket office and secure a seat on the canal tour. The two events together were not a convenient or viable option together. We would like a refund.
Ice bar good....bad communication form tour operator and no help when requested
Louise_B, Mar 2023
Ice bar was great but absolutely no instructions on where to go for the canal boat tour. We were sent from pillar to post by other boat companies so gave up as couldn't find it. disappointing
Confusing directions & timeslot
Lauren_K, Feb 2023
The ice bar was very fun, but quick, around 40 minutes in all. However, I was told over the phone to do the canal cruise first and ended up almost missing the time slot for the icebar. The time slot given on the ticket is for the ice bar and to do the canal cruise you must book a time slot yourself. This was not made clear even after I had to call for directions because they weren't included. Sadly, we did not get to do the cruise because it was booked solid once we finished the ice bar! The bar experience alone was not worth the price.
The Information were not...
Leonor_P, Feb 2023
The Information were not correct, it was really difficult to find the Informations. It was not clear.
Great stag do activity
Kerry_H, Feb 2023
Lovely canal tour, loved the fact we could book the canal tour for any day or time as we did the ice bar in the evening and canal tour day after. Staff on both tours were great
Derek_R, Jan 2023
We had booked the ice bar and cruise and we had asked the staff on where to get the cruise and nobody could tell us, We would have thought that with this package there would have been someone to take us to wherever the cruise started from.
Great Experience
James_W, Dec 2022
Great time at the ice bar. It's cold but worth the experience. The boat tour was quiet and laid back.
Excellent experience
Kyra_D, Dec 2022
It was a great experience thd ice bar was great, great atmosphere and the cruise was great way to see Amsterdam.

crystal_m, Nov 2022

Disappointing compared to the London Ice Bar
afrawillmore, Sep 2022
Quite fun but nowhere as good as the London Ice bar before it closed. Gloves grabbed off people leaving and puffer jackets with no hoods which didn’t do up mean those unprepared got very cold. Bar cramped and ice dirty, floor sticky. Staff good and drinks nice but didn’t stay long.
ElizabethLynn_M, Sep 2022
The ice bar was okay, you were rushed in and out and not really sure what was going on. We wanted to get the photographer to take our picture for a keep safe but we’re told to get out the way as they were filling up so no pictures. Also it was torrential rain so we did not go on the canal tour
Deborah_S, Jul 2022
We were told to be at the Ice Bar for 16.20. The bar was so small and the free drinks were pitiful. The ice glasses had a big lump in the middle so the amount you got was minimal. The shots were ok but again cheap stuff. The ice bar itself was a tiny little room with a metal floor. We expected something bigger. We then were told we had to make our way to the train station which was an hours walk to catch the canal boat for the second part of our experience. We had already walked down!!! The email wasn’t at all clear and so we didn’t know that we had to book a time in the canal boat either so we were so tired we went on that the next day. The canal cruise was lovely though.
Amsterdam in a few hours
Sebastian_B, Jul 2022
The bar is such a Unique experience, they staff is very welcoming. The boat was clean and has different languages for the guide tour, the staff at the boat operator are friendly
We were disappointed that...
Ruth_D, Jul 2022
We were disappointed that the beer tap wasn’t working, limiting our choice of drinks. The bar was smaller than I expected.

Mark_F, Jun 2022
Great hour of fun 😄 must do if visiting Amsterdam ! Wrap up and definitely wear the gloves as glasses are also ice !
The Icebar staff really...
Joanne_P, Jun 2022
The Icebar staff really make the experience! It’s the most fun you can have in sub-zero temperatures…similarly the commentator on the canal cruise was both informative and funny with personal anecdotes that made everyone laugh out loud.
The system allowed me to...
Lewis_J, May 2022
The system allowed me to book onto a booat trip which didnt exist, we turned up to the dock after our booking at the Ice Bar and the gentlemen said there were no more boats
It was nice experience but not worth the money
xsrsrp8r9z, May 2022
Boat ride was good and icebar experience was okayish but definitely not worth the price. Would rather just do the canal ride. If you like to drink then the ice bar might be worth.

Good for the money
steve_y, Sep 2021
Boat was interesting, ice bar is basic but 3 drinks you get with it is good, ps don’t wear shorts like us lol
Viator stole our money
Aidan_R, Mar 2020
We spent over a hundred dollars on this trip and were not allowed to even go on the canal tour. Viator stole our money and refused to issue us a refund. This is a scam. DO NOT BOOK THIS TRIP!
Response from Host, Mar 2020
Dear Aidan, We are not VIATOR! we would appreciate it if your complaint was made to the correct company. What was the issue? Can you elaborate please on what went wrong? please email us at kind regards, Sam
Ice bar
Ian_B, Mar 2020
Not enough information about the cruise so we nearly missed the last boat but luckily we got the last one
Response from Host, Mar 2020
Dear Ian, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed it and were able to catch the last boat. We hope to see you again in the future. kind regards, Guest relations
Ice bar experience
Paula_H, Feb 2020
Was good craic and something a bit different, didn't last very long but wasn't too expensive. Get the large ice glass as you get more free drink!
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Dear Tony, We are thrilled to read you had a lovely experience during your Icebar visit you have done with us. Hopefully we have made your holiday even more special!
Not too great
Rita3235, Dec 2019
The IceBar needed attention and was not well maintained. It was definitely for a younger group although we had gone to IceBars in other countries that were fabulous. The cruise was underwhelming and a disappointment although it did give us an overview of the City of Amsterdam.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Dear Rita, Thank you for your feedback, this is really important to improve our services and activities. Comments and observations of our clients are really precious for a business like ours. We are sorry to hear that the Amsterdam Super Saver: Xtracold Icebar and Canal Cruise did not meet your expectations and we would like to discuss it further through the email if you like. Please contact us at: Have a good day!
Not really what I was expecting...
Brittany_E, Nov 2019
So I thought that the people checking tickets at the front at Icebar would have some idea that people have purchased tickets for both the Icebar and another activity (in my case, the canal cruise). So I was very confused how to transition from the Icebar to the cruise. My ticket was for 9:20pm so there weren't any canal rides at that time, but the tickets were still valid for another day, fair enough (although, this was my last full night in Amsterdam so I ended up not making the cruise). When you enter the Icebar, you are given 1 gold token and 2 silver tokens. The 1st gold one is for the main bar area and you have limited drinks to choose from. Then you go into the actual Icebar (both spaces are pretty small) where you can use the 2 silver tokens on shots, again limited choices. I would still recommend just for the experience, just look up the canal cruise times.
Cold....but Fun!
KELLY_W, Nov 2019
What a fun date night activity. We loved drinking out of the ice glasses and taking pictures. The coats were a bit sticky and the gloves were too but we loved it!

Great saver deal
clairelironside85, Oct 2019
Great saver deal on 2 fab attractions. Staff on cruise and at ice bar were so friendly and welcoming.
Cool attraction
Peter_R, Jun 2019
The ice bar was smaller than expected but very cool (quite literally) to be in. Drinks were tasty. The canal cruise departs from a location that is a 20 minute walk from the ice bar. Would’ve been helpful knowing times of the canal cruise as we missed the last one of the night, which leaves at 10pm.
While The Ice Bar Was Fun...
RobertM_G, Jun 2019
This was booked because of the appearance that one might go directly from the Ice House experience (which was definitely a fun time) onto a canal boat for the second part of the deal. BUT, we were directed to take a metro train to then try to find the dock where the canal boat tour departed. We were a group of 10 and this was a huge hassle. Definitely NOT worth the money!!!
