Did you know that Giethoorn has no roads? Its inhabitants travel by boat through the canals, which is why this Dutch town is also known as the “Green Venice”.
Departing from Amsterdam, we will cross the province of Flevoland and the Weerriben - Wieden National Park until we reach Giethoorn. There we will enjoy a 1-hour boat ride to contemplate the beauty and magic of the place, the old farmhouses with thatched roofs and the wooden bridges. We'll also have free time to take pictures, stroll around and fill our stomachs in one of its excellent restaurants (lunch is not included).
On the way to Enkhuizen we will stop at the port of Lelystad to contemplate the replica of the “Batavia” (17th century galleon of the Dutch East India Company) and the famous statue “Exposure”, by Antony Gormley
We will cross from Flevoland to North Holland through the “Houribdijk”, a dam that connects both provinces and divides the Ijsselmeer and Markermeer lakes.
Finally, we will visit Enkhuizen, a key city in the Dutch Golden Age and where time seems to have stopped. Its canals, bridges, historic buildings and the port make it one of the most beautiful towns in the Netherlands
