  • Hi there hope things are well. Although it is a bit early, I thought to check if Hotelboat Iris may potentially be available October 2021 (pending COVID situation) - if that does or doesn't happen, what are generally the rates? Thanks for any information.

    Sorry for the late reply, We are currently closed and I wasn't expecting any questions. We open again in the last week of October because in the summer we organize bike tours. I think it will be aroung the 25th of October.
