… of our Nordic walking instructor, we will enjoy daily walks along canals and rivers, mostly on bicycle trails, void of car traffic. An exhilarating walk on the North Sea beaches will be for many people the highlight of this adventure. Spring is the most peaceful time of the year to explore Holland: watch the farmers prepare the land, wave at the boaters, listen to the birds, and enjoy the tranquility all around you. We will explore some wonderful old villages where you see homes dating to the 1600s. We’ll introduce you to Dutch pastries and hot chocolate with real whipped cream and of course, we visit Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands and home to Heineken brewery, the van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum where you’ll find many old masters including Rembrandt’s Night Watch. Amsterdam also has the Anne Frank House and many terraces where you can relax and watch the locals go about their business.
