holland boating holidays
The Netherlands are a perfect destination for boating holidays. One sees the true nature of the country from its countless waterways. Towns, villages, mills or bridges built along the canal are mirrored in the water. You will cruise through landscapes which inspired numerous famous Dutch painters. You’ll enjoy the warmth and "joie de vivre" of the Dutch in the Cafés along the canals, and visit shops and cellars in the old houses of Utrecht or Amsterdam.
where to cruise?
North and South Holland, Amsterdam Aboard your self drive boat, you will cross the great “broad” of Loosdrecht, dotted with untouched islands, and then follow the course of the river Vecht. Sailing to the north, you will reach the great capital city of Amsterdam, its magnificent architecture and world class museums. Further north, near Edam, you cross the Zaan country, full of windmills and rich in wildlife. If your barging cruise leads you to the South, the great art city of Utrecht will be one of the must see of your boating holidays!
