Explore the beauty of Amsterdam on a canal cruise to see the main highlights like the old buildings, markets, ports, and more before making a skip-the-line entrance to the ice-cold Xtracold Icebar.  You can take the tour in one go, or choose to enjoy each option on alternate days for maximum flexibility.

The ice bar was great, the cream vodka shot was very sweet and exactly what I wanted. The canal cruise was good, you could hear the audio well. it was a little difficult to see some of the views if you were on the wrong side but overall was good

The cruise was a really fun and informative cruise. The captain was a lot of fun and gave us lots of additional information on top of the recording. The Ice Bar was a really neat and fun experience. The atmosphere and the employees were great. We had fun and enjoyed the show.

You can book the cruise on the day you land but we were offered to take the ride that day we decided to book it for the original booking date. The cruise is an hour you can do Icebar first then the cruise or do it an hour or 2 before your Icebar experience.
