I have been to the Netherlands several times, each time I have taken tours to get to know this beautiful part of the world. I have loved each tour, but this tour was by far the best one I have ever taken in the Netherlands.

Full itinerary

Within 15 minutes, we have left the hustle and bustle of the city behind us.

Driving through the beautiful Beemster Polder (UNESCO World Heritage) meadows, cows, ditches, windmills, dikes, idyllic landscapes, and many colorful tulip fields take us to the world famous Afsluitdijk. This dike connects the two northern provinces, and protects half of the country against the force of the North Sea. It’s also the gateway to the Amsterdam Lake District.

Time to explore this dam! Find out why it’s so important for the Lake District, walk across to see the North sea, climb the monument (a watch tower looking out across both the IJsselmeer and the North Sea), or take a picture with its founder, Mr. Lelie.

Next up is picturesque open air museum village “Allingawier”. Make sure your camera’s ready to capture the sights! Meet the villagers, and travel back in time with a craftsman as your local guide. Explore the interior of an old Dutch farmhouse, walk across the grasslands, and find out what happened to the lake… A typical Dutch Farmers Lunch will await you at the restaurant (included in the tour).

After lunch, it’s time to visit the biggest Steam Pumping Station in thw world which is still in operation! One of the local operators will give you an exclusive tour while you learn everything about Dutch watermanagement.

Now it’s time for a unique moment: taking a walk through the tulip fields. The tulips only bloom for a couple of weeks each spring, so strike a pose, say cheese, and take plenty of pictures.

Once the afternoon draws to a close, it’s time to head back to Amsterdam to enjoy your evening in the city.
