Sunday Boat Ride to Katwijk Beach and Leiden City - FULLY BOOKED
We are welcoming the summer with a Sunday afternoon cruise to the beach. (this coming Sunday!)
The forecast is 25 degrees and dry, so we'll have a super day to spend on the water, cruising the old waterways from Voorhout to the old fishing village Katwijk aan Zee, spend some time at the beach, and then visit the historic city of Leiden by boat.
There are limited places Protected content so book your spot timely if you would like to join.
We will gather in front of the Protected content
We advise you to take the train half an hour earlier (11.34) and you can decide to have lunch at the meeting point. This way if the trains are delayed you will still be on time for boarding.
We will walk to the Leidsevaart (5 min) where we get on the boat and head directly towards the beach at Katwijk.
You can make photos and visit places that otherwise are not accessible from the main road. We'll travel like the Dutch did in the 17th century over the old Leidsevaart canal connecting Haarlem, Katwijk and Leiden.
At Katwijk we will stop for one hour and you can visit the old village and walk to the beach which is about 500m away. From there we sail to Leiden Center where we'll have a 30 min stop and you either stay or sail back with us to Voorhout.
Expect to see old typical Dutch landscapes that we pass by on the water. Van Gogh/Rembrandt paintings may come alive as we visit these remote areas. We will see windmills, traditional farm/fishing houses and houseboats along the way.
For nature lovers there are many opportunities to observe specific birds that love to raise their offsprings in the bulb area and several species of waterbirds.
