A unique country in many ways: A vast amount of the land lies below sea-level having been reclaimed from the sea by sheer hard work and of course the resulting land is incredibly flat with numerous lakes and canals for the enjoyment of all.
The Dutch love the water and boating in particular so you will meet plenty of locals during your cruise. Despite the winds, you will find cycling a real pleasure here whether simply for the pleasure of cycling alongside your boat, or whether to explore the local villages and towns.
The national parks, fields of tulips, shimmering lakes and sandy beaches invite relaxation, while the vibrant, historic cities of Amsterdam, Haarlem, Rotterdam, and Maastricht provide plenty of cultural activities, clubs, cafes and coffee shops...
Holland is a truely a unique destination.
