You can rent boats in the Netherlands without a skipper if you would rather take charge of your sailing experience. You must have the appropriate boating license in the Netherlands or there are also boats that do not require a license. Of course, the most fun is to be the captain of the boat yourself.

What to do in the Netherlands?

Wooden clogs, cheese and lots of canals! Are you planning your next trip to the Netherlands? You won’t regret it! With a mix of intriguing colours, scents and folklore, this destination is an ideal vacation destination for those seeking relaxation, culture, tradition and contact with nature. Boating holidays in Holland are a great way to enjoy the dutch waterways. Whether you want to stay on dutch boats going through the canals or fancy a sailing yacht in the lake, there is always something for everyone.

The Netherlands is known for its fantastic sailing areas and extensive water network, the most popular of which are located in Friesland and North Holland. Chartering a boat in Holland can start from Friesland. Sail across the Friesian lakes and explore the province’s numerous rivers and canals from a different perspective.

One possible destination could be the city of Sneek, where every Saturday in August, the so-called “Sneekweek” starts. This week everything revolves around sailing competitions in various categories that take place on the Sneekermeet.

If not, why not explore IJssel River and Markermeer Lake and their beautiful harbour towns with a rented boat. Then head for Enkhuizen, Hoorn and Lemmer with your boat and enjoy delicious Dutch crabs or an excellent fish sandwich directly in the harbour. Since there are no significant currents on the IJsselmeer and there is enough space, a boat hire in Holland is always a good choice, especially in the summer months!

Moving to the southwest of the Netherlands, the province of Zeeland is a great option for you! Holland houseboat rentals in Zeeland mean you can go on adventurous sailing trips. There you can expect tides, currents (especially on the Oosterschelde) and generally more sailing traffic. You prefer it a little more quiet? Sail towards the estuaries and with a little luck you will find seals and porpoises.

In the south of Holland, there is the Green Heart. A natural landscape surrounded by the Randstad (The Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Amsterdam) and is great for water sports and recreational activities like cycling and hiking. The area holds numerous beautiful landscapes, waters and cities for you to enjoy. The Green Heart can be divided into several areas. Each of those areas has its own unique character and charm such as De Hollandse Waarden.

In short, when you rent a boat in South Holland, you can combine the colourful big city flair with the tranquillity of the Green Heart.
