Monday 20th - Friday 24th June 2022
Every 10 years an international garden and exhibition festival that takes place in the Netherlands, Floriade is a horticultural highlight that is not to be missed.
Day 1: Following your home pickup we make our way to Dover to catch the mid morning ferry to Calais. We continue our journey through France and Belgium to the Netherlands and the Golden Tulip Hotel hotel in Nijkerk for 4 nights dinner, bed and breakfast.
Day 2: We depart the hotel after breakfast, we head to Hoorn to board the famous steam tram for a journey through the lovely Dutch countryside to Medemblik, during the journey we are served coffee and a locally produced pastry. On arrival, we have time to explore Medemblik before boarding the MS Friesland for a cruise to Enkhuizen. On our return to the hotel, we cross the Houtribdilk a 27km (17Miles) long dyke which now forms the largest inland lake in Western Europe.
Day 3: Today we will take you to Almere for the Floriade 2022 exhibition. The theme for the 2022 iteration of the Floriade Expo will be ‘Green City of the Future’. You’ll be able to enjoy a range of innovative exhibitions from cities, countries and businesses alike, and wander among unique collections of trees and flowers that support the motif. During the 2022 Expo, Almere – the event’s host city – will share its vision and philosophy on the ‘green city’, a topic on everyone’s lips. At this six-month exhibition, expect innovative plantings from around the world along with awe-inspiring events and rare trees. There will be workshops and conventions to attend and explore, and there will be four themes to discover at the event: food, energy, health and green. In addition, the 2022 Floriade Expo will see a ‘Green City Arboretum’ at the heart of the impressive 60-acre site.
Day 4: We depart the hotel for the picturesque town of Volendam. Traditional style houses, drawbridges and quaint canals create the image of one of Holland’s most picturesque towns. We continue to Amsterdam a city with something for everyone, from romantic canal cruises, fantastic gastronomic experiences, art, diamonds, shopping, culture, history and much, much more. Why not enjoy a canal cruise through the city and sail past many of the famous sights of the capital.
Day 5: Today we retrace our steps through Belgium to France and Calais for the return ferry crossing to Dover. We then continue our journey back to Norfolk, where our door to door service will be waiting to take you home.
