    Rent a boat or a canoe

    by nighthawk Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The main attraction of Giethoorn of course is the water and there are several places where one can rent a boat or a canoe.
    We did not rent our boat here, that is because we wanted a so called 'whisper' boat, a boat that s powered by a motor that makes little noise.

    Equipment: Not needed to bring anything, if you are a sensible boater, little will happen.
    At that time our youngest still had a trachea tube, and despite the fact that most people do not go on the water with such a child, it can be done if one is sensible.
