Cycle through the countryside
Cycling tops the list of must-do things in Amsterdam. Cycling through the picturesque and calm countryside of Amsterdam will be a wonderful and relaxing experience. Enjoy the serenity and glorious view that villages of Amsterdam have to offer.
If you are visiting in the spring season, don’t forget to visit the flower strip where you can get a quite spectacular view of flower blooms which will be a real treat for your eyes. You can also explore the historic harbor towns such as Marken or Volendam where you can admire the beauty of ancient structures.
Go on a kayak journey
Canal tours are an unavoidable part of Amsterdam private tours. It is among the most popular activities for tourists. The history and culture of Amsterdam is closely linked to its waters. The city will look even more beautiful from the waters. Even though there are some guided kayak tours, it is better to rent a kayak and explore the canals on your own to get a unique Amsterdam experience. The Amsterdam canals are often busy, so those who want a quieter place can head to south to the urban oasis at Amsterdamse Bos. Here you can enjoy a ride through water which is covered with trees.
Roller skate around Amsterdam
For those who love roller skating, this is a great way to explore the city. The sights rushing past you along with the soft wind that whips you is a truly fascinating experience. You can get this exciting experience at the Friday Night Skate, where a large number of skaters gather together to embark on a 20km adventure trip through the city. This is the perfect way to enjoy the city while mingling with fellow skaters.
Laser tag or paintball
This activity will help you to forget your stress and indulge in some fun. You can enjoy laser tag at ‘Lasertag Amsterdam’ where there is a both indoor and outdoor laser tag arena. Anyone including children from the age of eight can participate in this activity. So let loose and have some fun.
