Country houses, tea domes and lush green shores from a private canal boat: can you imagine a better way to learn about the Vecht and its inhabitants? An onboard guide will take you back in time as you sail past remnants of the Vecht’s history.
This cultural package allows you and your guests to dive into the rich history of the villages and country estates that lay along the Vecht River. Our guide and art historian, Juliette Jonker-Duynstee, can tell you and your guests all about the amazing history of the river as well as which famous people occupy these country houses today.
On this special cruise, you will view villages and houses not only from the water. In the quaint town of Loenen, your captain will dock so your historic sailing trip can move ashore. Here you will walk the idyllic streets of Loenen while your guide brings the history of the village back to life.
Loenen is nicknamed “the Pearl of the Vecht”- an epithet which is entirely justified. As such, a stop off to this picturesque village should not be missed during your Historic Cruise on the Vecht. The walk through Loenen will take you past windmills, beautiful gardens, extraordinary homes and the Gothic church to the old Kronenburg Castle.
This price includes coffee and pastries, drinks, finger foods, ship rental and taxes. Would you like to tailor your programme or end your cruise with a visit to a restaurant? Contact us and we can provide you with a customised quote.
