An awe-inspiring journey

When we think of Holland, we may envision tulips, wooden shoes and windmills, but the Netherlands is also a modern, progressive country. We’ll explore the fascinating legacy of Holland’s Golden Age and 21st century Holland as we navigate its scenic waterways—a labyrinth of canals and locks that’s a marvel of hydro-engineering.

It being the height of the spring blooming season, we’ll view brilliantly hued fields of Holland’s iconic tulips that exemplify the cutting edge of sustainable agriculture and biogenetics. We’ll travel through the idyllic countryside that inspired a genre and a generation of Dutch and Flemish masters whose works we’ll view at the region’s world-class art museums.
