Itineray

Day 1 Morning departure for the journey to Dover and the crossing to Calais and onto the hotel for a three night stay.

Day 2 Highlight of the tour – Floriade. Located in Almere, a modern ‘garden city’ near Amsterdam that was built on and reclaimed from the sea. The theme for 2022 is ‘Growing Greener Cities’ – an appropriate motto, given the site will become a new urban district named Hortus after the Floriade finishes in October 2022. There are four sub- themes, inspiring gardens, workshops and exhibitions will be mixed with impressive attractions, surprising tasting sessions, art and culture. The site will be full of energy and action with over 40 pavilions where countries show their culture, plants and flowers. Naturally, all in wonderful green surroundings. The event covers 60 hectares, offering hop on/hop off e-trains throughout the site for easy navigation. We have included a one way journey on the 850m long cableway travelling high above Floriade, giving you a fantastic view of the whole event. There will also be various cafes and restaurants throughout the location.

Day 3 Today you will travel to Hoorn and board the steam train for a single journey passing through villages across the Westfrisian to Medemblik, and whilst enjoying the views you will be treated to a coffee and pastry. On arrival in Medemblik you will have approx. one hour before boarding the museum ship, with a lovely saloon deck, for a cruise along the coast of Lake Ijsselmeer to Enkhuizen. On disembarkation you will return to the hotel by way of the Houtribdik Dam.

Day 4 After breakfast, depart the hotel and commence the homeward journey
