Holland is famous, of course, for its tulips, but as a land with a rich artistic and cultural history, it has a lot more to offer. 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 fully crewed Holland river cruises reveal this country’s hidden gems to the spellbound guests who visit the Netherlands in this unique way.
Visitors who join one of our Holland barge cruises will glide past flowering wildflower meadows. From the colours of the bulb fields to the magnificence of the formal gardens such as the world-renowned Keukenhof Gardens tourists appreciate 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. River cruises are an ideal opportunity to experience the best of this nation.
Lovers of culture come from far and wide to tour the renowned Dutch museums. Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Haarlem will charm you, just as they did the great artists, while other attractions such as the Delft Blue potteries and Gouda cheese market are equally memorable.
This map represents one of the itineraries we offer in this region.
The 12 passenger Panache, 12 passenger Savoir Faire and 8 passenger La Nouvelle Etoile offer Holland barge cruises in the spring, when the flowers are in full bloom.
