Water Routes through Utrecht

The Most Beautiful Routes in Utrecht!

A beautiful route over the Oude Gracht, Nieuwe Gracht, the Singel, Minstroom or Kromme Rijn. We think the waters of Utrecht are the most beautiful in the Netherlands.

We have done our best to set out a route for everyone. A short round through the city center or a long round of almost 10 km through nature.

The routes can be viewed on Google Maps. This way you can check during your activity whether you are still on course.

The average paddle time for the canoe and sup is given per route.

Route Old Canal Right through the old city center!

One of the most beautiful routes through Utrecht. Paddling along the old wharf cellars and nice terraces on the canal. The first part of the route leads you under Hoog Catharijne via the canal to the entrance of the Oude Gracht. This can be recognized by the characteristic stone arch. The route is a perfect way to explore the old city center of Utrecht.

Round Singel Historic tour of Utrecht!

Since September 2020, the urban outer canal or singel has been flowing again around the center of Utrecht. The route is characterized by the wide and calm water where there is enough space for everyone. A perfect place to practice but also a nice round to enjoy Utrecht. The tour continues under Hoog Catharijne, where remains of Vredenburg Castle can still be admired. Furthermore, the route takes you past Lepelenburg park where you can eat something along the way. You will also pass museums and the old prison Wolvenplein. A fantastic historical route!
