Dutch Bulbfields Mini Cruise
A mini cruise to Holland is a wonderful way to welcome the spring! At this time of year, the Dutch bulbfields are ablaze with flowering tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and a host of other spring flowers. Unsurprisingly, this trip is a firm favourite with Greatdays’ clients. This is a wonderful, leisurely way to travel to Holland.
Visit the world famous Keukenhof gardens, one of the world’s finest bulbfields and flower parks. Each year the Dutch bulb growing industry stage their annual petal spectacular. Keukenhof Flower Gardens was once a modest kitchen and herb garden for the Dutch Royal House. Today, however, each year between March and May, seven million bulbs planted across the park’s 70 acres burst into bloom. Visitors enjoy a spectacular rainbow carpet of flowers. For over 50 years, Keukenhof has been displaying its floral art with a different theme each year and a fresh look every day. The park has easy walking with flat paths and several restaurants.
Departing from the port of Hull embark on a relaxing overnight cruise to Rotterdam with P&O Ferries. On board, why not enjoy an extensive buffet dinner and breakfast? Furthermore, the journey across is complete with evening entertainment with a great atmosphere in the café and bar.
The following day, transfer from the port in Rotterdam to Keukenhof Gardens. Here you will have until mid afternoon to explore the charming gardens and flower displays. What’s more, you can upgrade your bulbfields package and add a €5.00 voucher per person is included for use at one of the many cafés in the park for you to enjoy a cup of coffee or cake. In the evening, board the return overnight sailing back to Hull.
Treat yourself to a splash of colour and embrace nature’s beauty. Whether you are a novice or green-fingered gardening God, this is a wonderful trip. The vibrant gardens are a delight to behold. A visit is a lovely way to celebrate nature and welcome the coming summer.
