To discover the Amsterdamse Bos from the waterside is a unique experience. Paddling through the waterways of the Bos makes the forest feel a little bit like the Amazone. The canoe and water bike rental is situated at the edge of the the Grote Speelweide (The Big Playground) along the Grote Vijver (The Big Pond). On the water a special canoe route is marked with purple poles.

Renting and tickets

You can rent a canoe from 9 euro per hour and a water bike from 15 euro per hour. There are several combo options for groups, bachelor- or team-building parties. You can also combine canoeing with a brunch, picnic or barbecue on the water terrace.


The canoe and pedal boat rental is open from mid-March to mid-October, seven days a week from 10:30 am to 7:00 pm (unless otherwise agreed).


Visitors coming by car can use the parking facilities on De Duizendmeterweg. Public transport brings you to the main entrance of the Amsterdamse Bos, near de Boswinkel (buses 170, 172 or 174 from Amsterdam Central Station). From De Boswinkel the canoe- and water bike rental can be reached by bike, or on foot (a 30 minute walk).
