Top 4 group activities in Amsterdam

Planning to visit Amsterdam for a stag do, hen do, family reunion, or some other large event? Below are four of the most popular group activities in Amsterdam for inspiration!

1. Take a canal boat cruise

Amsterdam group activitiesFor those who’ve never visited Amsterdam, a boat trip through its pretty canals is simply not to be missed. If your group consists of 10 or more people, then why not make your Amsterdam canal cruise one to remember, by upgrading to a so-called ‘Borrelboot package’. The Borrelboot cruise includes unlimited use of the boat’s on-board Dutch bar, which serves a selection of typical Dutch drinks, in addition to a mouth-watering range of traditional Dutch bar snacks.

2. Hire a pedalo

If the people in your group are reasonably fit and healthy, then you might consider hiring one or more pedalos instead. Each pedalo offers ample space for up to 4 people, and allows your group to admire the famous Amsterdam canals at their leisure.

3. Enjoy a ‘bierfiets’ excursion

If your family or friends prefer to stay on dry land, another option is to explore Amsterdam by ‘bierfiets’ (‘beer bike’). Most Amsterdam bierfiets can accommodate groups of up to 12 people, and are particularly ideal for lovers of authentic Dutch beer – indeed, every Amsterdam bierfiets benefits from its very own beer tap, which can be operated whilst simultaneously soaking up the sights!

4. Book a cycling trip

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do” – and nothing is more quintessentially Dutch than hopping on your bike! You can choose from a mind-boggling assortment of Dutch bicycles for hire in Amsterdam, including children’s bikes, tandems and even cargo bikes. If you’re worried that your group might get lost in the network of bustling streets, then book a tour guide who knows the quickest route to those must-see Amsterdam attractions.
