Explore the well-known sites of Holland, plus some off the beaten path, for a unique and fascinating river cruise vacation! In Northern Holland, you may opt to see the colorful fields of tulips which make this part of the country so beautiful. Alternatively, in Enkhuizen, a picturesque town with one of the largest marinas in the country, you may prefer to visit the Zuiderzee Museum to experience the local culture and history. Also, there's an opportunity to meet some of the locals before continuing your river cruise through the area of Friesland, best known internationally for its black and white Friesian cattle and black Friesian horses. Here, you'll visit the Royal Planetarium, nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Lelystad, visit the Batavia shipyard and board an exact replica of the Batavia ship itself—originally constructed in 1628 and wrecked on its maiden voyage. Get a true taste of the culture with an introduction to local cheese and Genever! Cruise through the modern harbor of Rotterdam and go on a guided excursion to Gouda, famous for its cheese of the same name, as well as syrup waffles, clay pipes, and the 15th-century City Hall. For garden enthusiasts, you may, instead, choose to see the breathtaking colors of Keukenhof, also known as the “Garden of Europe." With over 70 acres of parkland and lakes, it's one of the world's largest flower gardens.

A river cruise through Holland would not be complete without some time in Holland's popular, modern capital of Amsterdam. The city combines its historical 17th-century buildings, sculptures, and museums with a modern feel. See the most fascinating areas of the city on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city's “Golden Age."
