Description

On this holiday we explore the rich traditions of the flat 'polder-land' along the northern shores of Holland. Since the 17th century, this area has been reclaimed from the sea, in ancient times by pumping the land dry with windmills. We'll cycle to the open air museum at Zaanse Schans with its wooden houses and windmills. On the island of Texel we'll stop at beautiful beaches, picturesque villages and visit the seal sanctuary. Holland has an excellent network of cycle paths, which link the historical town Hoorn, Edam, famous for its cheeses and the harbour at Volendam, known for its smoked and salted herrings.
