A tiptoe through the tulips.
Clan Chieftain Tour - Escorted Tours accompanied by Mr Harry Macpherson
Friday: Travel from Dover to Calais and on to the Utrecht/Amersfoot are of Holland for a 3 night stay at Kontakt der Knotinenten Hotel.
Saturday: Head north to Hoorn and board the famous tram for our adventure through the lovely Dutch countryside to Medemblik. During the journey, you will be served coffee and a local pastry. On arrival, you have free time to explore Medemblik before boarding the museum ship Friesland for our included cruise to Enkhuizen. From here we make our way across the Houtrbdijk, a 27km dike, built between 1963 and 1975, which crosses what used to be the Zuider See and is now the Ijsselmeer, the largest inland lake in Western Europe. Look out for the radio station half way, before joining a polder ‘Flevoland’ which is a reclaimed land from the former sea.
Sunday: After breakfast, it’s a full day excursion to and through the Dutch Bulbfields to the Keukenhof Gardens named ‘The Greatest Flower Show on Earth’, with over 70 acres of parkland and 10 miles of walkways. Admire a vast collection of hundreds of thousands of flowers displayed in beautifully landscaped gardens which adorn the estate.
Monday: We retrace our steps to Calais for the return ferry to Dover.
