On your first day meet your trip leaders at the Goes train station, and transfer to the town of Veere. An authentically historic town, Veere makes you feel as if you took a trip back into history. Veere Meer Lake is a fun past time for locals and visitors alike, and if you are interested in getting some very unique views of Walcheren, you should go to the top of the Great Church, also referred to as Grote Kerk or the Campversee Tower.
You finish up your exciting day at the Katoen Hotel, in the heart of Goes.
Dinner is served at a local restaurant in the center of town.
Now you can settle into your suite as you unwind, get some rest, and begin preparing yourself for the fun-filled day that awaits ahead on Day 2.

Today is one that every visitor to this wonderful region looks forward to. This is the day that the entire group transfers to Kinderdijk’s UNESCO World Heritage site. It is at this location that tourists get to see the vast array of 19 powerful windmills over the landscape up close and in person. That being said, you may also take the time to penetrate one. Windmills also helped to drain the soil at one point in the country’s rich history, and some of them are still functioning today.
Next, you bike to Gouda. Gouda itself has a population of over 70,000, and is located in the Western part of the Netherlands in the South Holland Province.
Just after lunch on your own, the kids head to the Madurodam an outdoor miniature park where they get to discover Holland highlights in an interactive way. Meanwhile adults jump back on their bike for some more cycling through classical Dutch countryside before arriving back at the Hague and your hotel.

This is the day that you cycle through the “Beverly Hills” of Holland. In fact, Noordwijk has some of the most beautiful flower fields and is actually nicknamed the Dune and Bulb Region. Wassenaarders are what the residents of Wassenaar are referred to as a World War II bunker can be found on the route there
In the afternoon and depending on the time of the year you travel, you have the opportunity to take a walk thru the Keukenhof gardens, a 7-acre park where seven million flowers are on display for everyone to see. Remember that the park is only open from mid-march to mid-may.
In the afternoon, while the kids go tree climbing at an adventure Park, you bike next to plenty of lush farmland and coastal dunes. Netherlands itself actually means lowlands, and if it wasn’t for the well-crafted array of sea-walls, dunes, canals, levees and dikes, around 50% of the entire region would be flooded.
