All a leisurely drive away from Keukenhof Gardens also known as the Garden of Europe and ‘the Bulb Fields Route’.

Dutch Bulbfields & Amsterdam

 

Day-by-Day Highlights

 

Day 1 

We start off our flower-filled SwanTour by travelling towards the Netherlands.

Sit back and relax on our luxurious SwanTourer as we draw closer to the

impressive gardens that the Netherlands has to offer.

 Beds of vibrant oranges, pinks and yellows will soon be amongst

some of the plant life set before you at

Keukenhof Gardens and ‘the Bulb Fields Route’.

 

 

Day 2 

The day has arrived when we visit Keukenhof Gardens, the Garden of Europe.

At Keukenhof Gardens, they will give you over 700 million reasons for smiling.

That’s because the gardens are planted with 700 million bulbs,

featuring 800 different types of tulips.

 It’s the largest flower park in Europe, leading to a highway

of flowers, or the Bulb Fields Route, featuring fields of hyacinths, narcissi, daffodils

and the nation’s favourite bloom. There will be plenty of time to peruse the flower beds taking in the fragrant smells, vibrant colours and tranquil settings,

which is medically proven to have a longterm

positive effect on moods and increase our sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction.

 

 

Plants help people connect with nature, and with each other.

Once we’ve spent time admiring Keukenhof Gardens we will return to our hotel,

the Art Hotel*** Spaander for a much needed rest.

Guests of the hotel can expect elegant rooms which offer TVs and free Wi-Fi.

 

Day 3

 Awaken on day three to a visit to Amsterdam with free time.

Enjoy exploring Dam Square located in the heart of the city before

wandering down one of its many pathways leading across bridges and through alleys -

-Who knows what treasures you will find!

 

 

This journey continues to port Volendam, where the masters,

Picasso and Renoir, spent time capturing beautiful light and landscapes.

Before returning back to our hotel for some refreshments in their wood-paneled tavern

which features vivid paintings, a restaurant with lakeviews and a cosy bar.

in your minds and the smells adding to the memories, begin our travels back home to the
