Holiday Itinerary - Amsterdam & Dutch Crafts

Day 1: UK to Heemskerk

We cross to Calais and continue our journey to the NH Marquette. 

Days 2 to 3: Heemskerk

Watch traditional crafts such as clog and cheese making or visit the windmills and traditional buildings at Zaanse Schans. Local charges apply for some attractions. We will then continue to Volendam, a coastal town where the villagers still dress in their traditional dress in the shops, cafes and restaurants perched around a pretty harbour. On our return we will visit a cheese factory to watch a demonstration. On our trip to Amsterdam you will have chance to see famous sights, such as the Rijksmuseum or Anne Frank House. Wander the famous canals and explore all the different districts that make up this fabulous city. You will have the option of seeing Amsterdam from a different perspective on a guided canal cruise. (B,D)

Day 4: Heemskerk to Northern France

We leave our hotel behind and drive south through Holland. Before crossing into Belgium we will stop in Sluis, a traditional Dutch village on the Belgian border. Famous for being the last port for Bruges, Sluis is often thought of as the most Flemish town in the Netherlands, and its Flemish-style belfry certainly proves this. ( B,D )

Day 5: Northern France to UK

We make the short journey to Calais for our return crossing and continue our journey home. (B)
