It’s hot and we know it!

The weather is exceptionally hot and we know it. Although the Netherlands is generally known to have a cold climate, a few times per year we still have to endure exceptionally hot periods. As short as they stay, we give you our personal tips and tricks to get the most out of it!

Nearby beaches

As a country that’s half build under sea-water-level, there is plenty of water to find to find refreshment.

Within 1 hours it’s possible to reach most of our beaches on the coast-side. Beaches are usually the first things that comes to peoples mind, therefore relatively easy to result in busy and overcrowded places. Visit this page for the 10 best beaches in the Netherlands here.

Looking for alternatives? Who would we be if we didn’t come up with a least some cool alternatives?

Outdoor water activities

Rent-a-boat
It’s a small effort to get on one of the electric boats. Cruise the canals in a environment-friendly way going full electric. Be your own catpain, decide your direction, bring your own drinks and bites and you got a plan!
SUP (stand-up-Paddling)
Supping is a nice way to explore the waters of Amsterdam in an active way. Although it might get really hot due to the weather, with water around it’s still one of the most popular activities of the moment
Rent a canalbike
Fancy biking, but too hot or crowded on the street? Then a canalbike is the perfect alternative.
Explore the canals peddling on your own canalbike (up to 4 persons), leaving from right around the corner. This is fun for young and old!
