Explore the Amsterdam canals and its beautiful 17th-century architecture during a one-hour canal cruise, before or after enjoying fast-track entry to the Amsterdam Xtracold Icebar.

This combination ticket can be enjoyed in one-go, or you can choose to visit on separate days. The Xtracold Icebar is a unique experience in the city centre of Amsterdam. Spend as much time as you would like, while sipping from your glasses made of ice. Then, cruise through the city’s UNESCO World Heritage listed waterways and enjoy the scenic views of Amsterdam from the water.

Get stranded on Nova Zembla

A visit to the Amsterdam Xtracold Icebar includes three free drinks. Upon arrival, you will enter the heated bar. Here, you can enjoy your first free drink. Then, you will be introduced to Willem Barentsz, a Dutch Explorer, as you join him on his journey to Nova Zembla. Before stepping into the Xtracold Icebar, warm clothing will be offered to survive the -10 degrees Celsius. The bar is surrounded by ice, from the walls to the ice sculptures to your very own glass, where you can enjoy two ice-cold free drinks.

Enjoy the scenic views of Amsterdam from the water

Hop onboard while you meander through the canals of Amsterdam. During this 1-hour canal cruise, you will discover the best sights of the city and understand why Amsterdam is also known for ‘Venice of the North’.  There are more than 100 kilometres of waterways crossing well-known districts and famous canals, such as, the Keizersgracht, Prinsengracht, and the Herengracht. Here, you will find the historic bridges and grand gable houses that give the city its charming and iconic character.
