De Rijnstroom boat hiring company has been hiring out canoes and rowing boats in Utrecht for over 25 years.
Hire a canoe or rowing boat from De Rijnstroom and go for an excursion of the magnificent Amelisweerd scenic area. Moor at the Rhijnauwen tearoom for a cup of coffee or tea and cake or a delicious pancake. Next to it is the Rhijnauwen castle that currently functions as a youth hostel.
Another option – and a real must – is a cruise of the Utrecht canals, taking in splendid medieval canalside houses, numerous bridges and naturally the Dom Tower. Some of the characteristic wharves are used as outdoor cafés, and restaurants are established in many of the wharf cellars.
Canoeing by night:
Consider our option of canoeing by night and paddle trough the magnificently lit canals of the city of Utrecht while the sun is setting. Along the way, a pause is scheduled at one of the many Utrecht cafés, and the end of the trip is a wonderful experience when canoeing under dark and low bridges.
