BOAT TRIPS THROUGH GIETHOORN

Punterwerf Wildeboer organizes various boat trips with a traditional Gieters vessel (‘Vlot’). The cruise takes you through one of the most beautiful parts of Giethoorn and the nature reserve called “DeWieden”.

In the new season of 2022, our boat is equipped with a new combi truster 3500 hp electric motor.

The Boat Trips:

Early Bird Tour

Anyone who wants to see birds knows that you have the best chance early in the morning! Spotting the birds in this beautiful water-rich nature area with swamp forests and reedbeds is an experience you never forget. Bird spotters will be pleased to see and hear a wide variety of meadow and marsh birds. Every morning, the birds whistle their own morning tune. So early, we certainly encounter some deers. The tour guide can tell you a lot about birds, but also about the plants and insects we come across. You will also learn a bit more about the history of the village of Giethoorn, about the first inhabitants who settled here 800 years ago up to and including the younger generations who formed this area.

In short, a very diverse experience tour within 2.5 hours!

Do not forget to bring your binoculars.

There are comfortable chairs and fleece blankets on board.

Price: € 34,50 per person.

Along the way, there is coffee, tea or hot chocolate with a delicious cake from the Amoureus confectionery.

The tour is for min. 8 and max.10 persons. Are you interested, but not a complete group of 8 people yet? Then sign up: We will keep you informed if we can gather enough participants in total (minimum to start to the tour: 8 persons).

Nature trip

Our skipper will take you through the village canal of Giethoorn North, where he will tell you a bit more about the history of Giethoorn. Between the reed collars, he continues his way to the nature reserve of the Noorderstouwe. This area is unique due to the numerous meadow birds and marsh birds that you will find here. It is a place of beneficial rest and is often only accessible by boat. You might hear the blue-breasted whistle and see a kingfisher shoot away. Other birds you might spot are: the sparrow, brown chick thief, purple heron and skylarks. Moreover, the skipper will also tell you more about the other inhabitants of the area. The fox, the otter but also about butterflies and insects – not to forget the countless flowers like the cuckoo flower, marsh marigold, pimpernel and rattlesnake. Do not forget to bring your binoculars.
