The water is a way of life in Holland, a nation born of the sea and the rivers that flow across its pastoral flat lands. An Amsterdam canal cruise past slowly turning windmills, fields of colourful tulips, quaint villages and cosmopolitan cities ushers you into a realm unique in boating. It’s a place to explore at your leisure, inviting you to ease into an unhurried journey like no other.
Why to choose
The Dutch Wadden Sea Islands are the five perls in the north of the Netherlands. They are all worth a visit, because Schiermonnikoog, Ameland, Terschelling, Vlieland and Texel differ quite a bit from one another. It’s easy to ‘hop’ from one island to another without having to set a foot on mainland. This way one can experience the differences between the islands in one trip. And Amsterdam: here is where you can enjoy the wonders of a city by boat. Dubbed the “Venice of the North”, Amsterdam’s canals are not only attractive, but they’re also a great way to travel around the city, enjoying the sights of this free-thinking European metropolis.
