Holland / The Netherlands Cruising Area
HOLLAND / NETHERLANDS

HOLLAND is famous, of course, for its tulips, but as a land with a rich artistic and cultural history, it has a lot more besides. The western provinces of the land of water are populated by windmills which sit above the polders and along the very river that gave its name to Amsterdam. Our hotel barge cruises some of Holland's hidden gems and are the perfect way to experience the best the country has to offer.

From the colours of the bulb fields to the magnificence of the formal gardens such as the world-renowned Keukenhof Gardens, tourists are entranced by the unique horticultural expertise of the Dutch. And those who stop off at cities along the way, marvel at the architecture and engineering feats of the innovative people of Holland.

Lovers of culture come from far and wide to tour the renowned Dutch museums. Amsterdam, Leiden and Haarlem will charm you, just as they did the great artists, while other attractions such as the Royal Delft potteries and Aalsmeer flower market are equally memorable.

The 12 passenger Panache and the 8 passenger La Nouvelle Etoile offer Holland barge cruises in the spring, when the flowers are in full bloom. This is without a doubt the best time to visit this country, and our Holland river cruises are carefully planned to allow you to experience all that the country has to offer.
