    Canoeing in direction city centre or nature

    by Roggeveen Updated Mar 4, 2013

    On the eastside of Utrecht you can rent a canoe or rowing boat. It's only a half hour to the city centre (canoeing) or a small hour to the pancake restaurant. A perfect stop after burning your calories.
    For real sporty people; book a canoe day trip. A mini van will bring you to the start, in the city of Wijk bij Duurstede.
    Special: in the summer you can join the group tour; Canoe night in Utrecht

    Equipment: Wear clothes that may get wet. On a sunny day, don't forget your sunscreen.

    If Football's Your Thing....

    ...and you fancy some FC Utrecht souvenirs then there are a couple of Fanshops around the city and of course one out at the stadium. Probably the easiest one to find is that at the Hoog Katherine Mall as it is pretty much the first thing in front of you as you go in the main entrance.

    Website has details of opening times etc and also a link to the online shop.

    Now bowling centers are all the same to me, but if you like bowling then here's an address for you.
    There are various prices, depending on the time that you are reserving but the most expensive is € 27,50 per hour per bowling track (6 persons per track).
    You can also make reservations for a combination of dinner and bowling.

    Equipment: No equipment necessary. The price includes bowling shoes (obligatory)

    go cycling

    Cycling, yes it is a thing to do in the netherlands. We have no mountains, so even the person that hates cycling because of this , can do this here.
    It is a great way to see the city, but the surroundigs too.

    Equipment: You can take your own bike, but you can rent them for not much money, the hotel will tell you where, or in the trainstaion they can tell you too, there is a shop under the station who rents them, and you can buy cheap maps in the VVV.
