Overview

Experience historic maritime cities, where innovation meets the traditions of the past, and take in the authenticity of iconic windmills and the floral masterpiece of the colourful Dutch bulb fields. The stunning bulbfields really are an amazing sight. In Keukenhof Park there are a staggering 7 million blooms covering 80 acres in a riot of colour whilst imaginative landscaping shows off mother-nature at her outstanding best with shimmering lakes, water-gardens and flowering shrubs of every hue.

You will also explore the Ijsselmeer, the inland lagoon created by the damming of the Zuider Zee in the 1930’s and discover the series of beautiful villages along its shore which have made their living from the sea for centuries. It was from here during the 16th century Golden Age, that the Dutch roamed the world in search of the spices, silks and luxury goods which Europe’s aristocracy craved and today they are little changed since this time. Blend this with Amsterdam, one of Europe’s most vibrant and fascinating cities and a wonderful few days are in store. This river cruise is the perfect way the see the wonders of the Netherlands for travellers who love horticulture, history and old harbour towns. 

We disembark our first-class vessel to spend our last 3 nights in Amsterdam. During our stay, we discover the historic town of Haarlem in the heart of the Netherlands' tulip-growing region and sample one of the country's most famous export, beer. Explore the highlights of Amsterdam and visit the Rijksmuseum - an art lover's paradise with an extensive collection from the Dutch Golden Age. There'll also be plenty of free time to explore as you wish - or relax in the local bars and cafes.
