On this seven-day river cruise, we will see the best of Dutch springtime, with vibrant displays from Amsterdam to Kampen. The focal point of the cruise will be the fabulous Floriade Expo. Held in Almere, on the outskirts of Amsterdam, the theme will be ‘growing green cities’, and here we’ll be treated to a cornucopia of trees, shrubs, perennials, creepers and flower bulbs. Our included excursions to Het Loo Palace and De Kruidhof Botanical Garden as well as workshops with Jane Greenoff and an exclusive viewing of a selection of high-quality antique needlework samplers, make this the ultimate spring escape!
