Friesland and Amsterdam

Enter a world of beauty by the sea in Friesland-Amsterdam

The water is a way of life in Holland, a nation born of the sea and the rivers that flow across its pastoral flat lands. On an Amsterdam canal, you will cruise leisurely past turning windmills, fields of colourful tulips, quaint villages, cosmopolitan cities and it will usher you into a realm unique in boating. It’s a place to explore at your own pace, inviting you to ease into an unhurried journey like no other.
Great for... 
  • City break in Amsterdam
  • Fishing, cycling & watersports
  • Festivals & events
  • Relaxed pavement café atmosphere

Reviews for Holland cruises

Our cruise visited Heeg, Stavoren, Workum, Bolsward, Ijlst and Sneek. Most memorable were the beautiful tall masted ships at Stavoren and views out over the Ijsselmeer, the historic town square and Huisman art museum at Workum, and many more sites. The wide open skies, beautifully tended villages, towns and gardens and outstanding wildlife/wildfowl.
Highly recommended Jopie Huisman art museum at Workum, the market and town centre at Bolsward, the 'De Rat' windmill tour and lunch at Ijlst and all the entertainment at Sneek along with the historic Waterspoort.
We had a wonderful trip and really enjoyed Holland. The people are friendly and wonderful in Friesland.
I recommend using the trip outline for the short break Circle tour. It was great.
Most memorable--watching the traditional wooden fishing boats parade into Spakenburg in the late afternoon. We enjoyed the area around Weesp and Muiden--so beautiful and picturesque.
We covered 400 km, north to Kampen, then south to Weesp. We also stopped in Elburg, Harderwijk, Spakenburg, and had lunch in Zeewolde on the last day. Unfortunately, nothing much was open in Elburg and Kampen on a Sunday, so that was disappointing. Weesp and Spakenburg were wonderful. It was easy to go into Amsterdam from Weesp.
its easy to travel on the chanels.
all the small towns.
