Canoe Rental The Hague provides you with a unique opportunity to enjoy the city and its beautiful surroundings from its many waters. Paddle through the historic center with its distinctive old and modern architecture and many bridges, or take a trip to one of the rural areas!
Along the extensive water network there are numerous places where you can moore your canoe and take a break. You can bring your own provisions and have a picnic on a beautiful shore! Alternatively The Hague offers a wide choice of cafes and restaurants for lunch, dinner or a good glass of wine.
It can be very exciting to find your own way trough the canals and to get surprised by what you encounter! But for those who prefer a more guided take to the waters, we have mapped out six routes of different length and duration below, each with its own distinct character. Because not everyone has the same speed, the times indicated are an approximation. The indicated distance is that of the total round trip.
