Amsterdam's Light Festival

Amsterdam's Light Festival

The Netherlands shine bright in the build up to Christmas!

Enjoy a short break to vibrant and cosmopolitan Amsterdam as it hosts its famous Light Festival, as artists from around the world light up the architecture of the city’s historic centre with illuminated buildings, bridges and stunning light sculptures. We feature an included evening canal cruise allowing you the opportunity to view the spectacular light show from the perspective of Amsterdam’s famous waterways.


Tour highlights:

• Light Festival cruise

• Free time in Amsterdam

• Antwerp



Day 1

We collect you from home for the journey to Folkestone and the morning Eurotunnel to Calais before continuing the journey through Belgium into Holland and on to the Ramada Apollo Hotel in Amsterdam. This evening it’s time to commence exploring the city and enjoy a meal in one of the numerous restaurants or bars and sample the vibrant Amsterdam nightlife.

Day 2

A full day at leisure to discover the city’s endless attractions. Perhaps visit a Diamond Centre, Anne Frank’s House, the Van Gogh Museum or the famous Rijksmuseum. In the evening enjoy an included Light Festival cruise for spectacular views of the enchantingly illuminated city, beautifully magnified by the water’s reflection.


Day 3

Another day at leisure to explore this vibrant city. Maybe hop on a sightseeing tour bus or take a seat in the many canal side cafes and restaurants to sample Dutch delights. As night falls the city will once again be illuminated by breath taking artworks of light, transforming the buildings and bridges alongside the Amstel River into captivating light sculptures.


Day 4

We leave Amsterdam this morning and travel to Calais, via Antwerp, for our afternoon Eurotunnel journey back to Folkestone and to East Anglia, arriving by mid evening.
