About The Water Colors Canal Cruise:

The Dutch capital is set to flourish once again during this winter's Amsterdam Light Festival. Join in the celebrations with a 75-minute cruise through Amsterdam’s iconic canals and savour beautiful works of light-art by contemporary artists from around the world.

During the darkest days of the year the city is brightly illuminated with sculptures, projections and installations using light as the universal medium. The festival is best experienced from the water, and Lovers' Water Colors Canal Cruise will provide front row seats.

The cruise departs 17 times every day between November 28th, 2019 and January 19th, 2020. Pick the date and time slot that suits you best and enjoy a dazzling journey through the illuminated heart of Amsterdam.
