COUNTRYSIDE & LITTLE VENICE TOUR

Countryside Zaanse Schans & Volendam

Our Dutch Countryside Tour will take you to some of the most picturesque villages in the Netherlands. On the Zaanse Schans you can see from a distance the wicks are already running slowly with vast meadows in the background. Every mill is still working has its own story.

Volendam is one of the most famous fishing villages in the Netherlands. Besides the fishery there is also a real cheese factory, which we will visit. In Volendam there is time for lunch, the ultimate moment to eat a herring in the traditional way or to enjoy other Dutch dishes. From Volendam the tour continues to Giethoorn.

Little Venice

Giethoorn is a peaceful village that is often referred to as the “Little Venice” of the Netherlands, due to its numerous waterways and absence of roads and cars. Its beautiful canals, picturesque wooden bridges, and farmhouses with centuries-old thatched roofs give it a unique fairy-tale vibe. In Giethoorn you will cruise the canals by boat and have some time to explore the town on your own.
