Adventure holidays in Amsterdam

Adventure Holidays in Amsterdam

If you are looking for adventure holidays in Amsterdam, you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to attractions. Amsterdam is just a one hour flight from London and attracts visitors from all over the world who come to enjoy the unique atmosphere of this capital city. The challenge is deciding what to do! However, if you are looking for a more exciting time, take at look at these top adventures in Amsterdam:

Cycle through the Countryside

Cycling is one of the best outdoor activity in the Netherlands. Although most of the locals use their bikes to get around the city, there are many that cycle as a sport. The cobbled streets of Amsterdam are a struggle for cyclists used to more serene rides. For a scenic ride, head off south to bike through the colourful blooms in the famous Flower Strip, which are probably best enjoyed in the spring. Perhaps you may want to head off north from Amsterdam and explore the historic harbour towns such as Marken or Volendam.

Kayak Journey

A wonderful top adventures in Amsterdam activity is the guided Kayak tour. There are plenty of guided kayak tours available in the city but you can also rent a kayak yourself and create your own exploration. The canals are quite often very busy; however, if you are looking for a quieter kayaking experience then head off south to the urban oasis at Amsterdamse Bos.

This amazing forest is accessible from the city centre by bus or on a Sunday the museum tram offers you tree-lined waterways and a vast pond for a long but leisurely ride. Ultimately, this will make a perfect addition to your adventure holidays in Amsterdam.

Roller skate around Amsterdam

Skate through Amsterdam with all the famous sights as you rush past. Serious roller skaters can capture this great feeling with Friday Night Skate; where a group of skaters get together to embark on a 20km stunning adventure through the city. The group skate normally takes place each Friday night depending on the weather. It starts at the Vondelpark (which has its own daily roller-skating sessions). This is just the perfect way to get around the city and make some friends. There are also special nights such as Halloween.

Paintball Arena

Do you think you have got what it takes to survive? Well here you can find out at the Amsterdam West’s indoor and outdoor laser tag arena at Lasertag Amsterdam. Groups of 2 to 24, including children aged 8 and upwards can join in on a half-hour laser tag session. If you really want to get enthusiastic (but maybe get bruised slightly) then partner up and play some paintball at Paintball Spaarnwoude, an attack zone that is hidden deep in the woods but only 15 minutes from Amsterdam’s centre.

Monkey around at Fun Forest

The Fun Forest is located at the north end of Amsterdamse Bos and offers a family-friendly place to climb up the trees of one of Amsterdam’s best known nature spots. Children and adults can enjoy the adventure together. There is a choice of nine very demanding and challenging rope courses and also zip lines to romp around. Afterwards, leave the forest and begin a new adventure on the water. The Fun Forest offers the stand-up paddle-boarding experience on their nearby lake.
