Kukenhof Gardens in Spring Time

Kukenhof Gardens

Holland Tulip Cruises

Tulip Time in Holland - it sells out quick.

Between late March and mid May, the countryside of Holland is covered with blooms in every color of the rainbow. The flowers stretch on for as far as the eye can see - tulips, daffodils, iris, crocus and hyacinth.

Cruising on a barge through the waterways of Holland, you are able to see how vast these bulb fields are. Take one of the provided bicycles on the barge and cycle among the glorious fields of color.

We offer three barge vessels cruising in Holland during the tulip season - Panache, La Nouvelle Etoile and Savoir Faire. They each offer a slightly different itinerary from the others. Each barge will feature a visit to the famous Kukenhof Gardens during Spring time.

River cruises are another way to see the countryside of Holland and Belgium. These bigger vessels cover more of the countryside and usually include Belgium. Belgium features some charming towns such as Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent.

In addition to the famous Kukenhof Gardens, Holland and Belgium have some marvelous public and private stately homes with gardens.

Check out our list below on other gardens worth visiting in Holland and Belgium.
