Holland in spring

Visit the Netherlands in your car to discover the beauty of the country.

There are a number of tulip fields just a short distance from our Dutch port where you’ll find endless rows of stunning colour, most of which are in Noordoostpolder. There’s also the famed flower parade which tours from Noordwijk to Haarlem and Keukenhof Gardens, the world’s largest flower garden. You could even take a day trip to Texel Island where you’ll find all the springtime lambs just starting to find their feet.

If you’re planning a family break, Efteling, the fairytale forest and theme park offers endless fun and you can even stay there too.

The beauty of car travel means you can discover more of Holland’s picturesque countryside and coast or head into neighbouring Germany & Belgium for more adventures.
