Book a unique vacation with Avalon Waterways Tulips in Holland excursion this Spring
The New Year will be here before you know it, and you may already be considering unique cruise destinations for a springtime excursion. Did you know one of the most distinctive and popular Spring destinations is a river cruise that offers the best view of the tulips in Holland? Tulips and the glorious colors of the season offer travelers a truly beautiful sight in this area of the country. In fact, Avalon river cruises transports guests to the picturesque Keukenhof Gardens during their river cruise itinerary. Also known as the world’s largest floral park, here you can witness extensive fields that are home to more than 7 million tulips and an abundance of hyacinths, daffodils, croci and more! Between the scenery, gardens, architecture and vibrant atmosphere found in this region of Europe, Spring really is the best time to see the tulips in Amsterdam and the surrounding areas!
Often nicknamed the “Tulip & Windmills” or “Tulip Time” cruise, Avalon Waterways offers 5 day and up river cruise to Holland offers you a unique experience sailing on both major rivers and inland canals and seas. It is on these smaller rivers and canals that you can witness the mesmerizing beauty of historical towns and cities such as Antwerp, Ghent, Kinderdijk, Arnhem, Hoorn, Amsterdam and more.
While the magical colors and flowers begin to appear during Spring, the best time to see tulips in Amsterdam is typically late April through May. Winter weather in this region plays an important role of when exactly the tulips will be in full bloom. For example, if winter ends quickly, tulips will typically bloom earlier. Because the weather plays such an integral part in the tulip bloom cycle, it is usually recommended to aim for a mid-Spring river cruise in order to see the flowers.
When embarking on Avalon river cruises, prepare to also see some of the most intriguing sites in this area of Europe. For instance, if Amsterdam is on your itinerary, you might want to explore the Van Gogh Museum or take a canal tour via a glass topped boat to take in views of the majestic architecture from the Golden Age. If the 18-century community of Kinderdijk is on your “ports of call” list, prepare to learn all about windmills. Here you can witness working windmills and their pumping mechanisms at a UNESCO World Heritage site. While in The Netherlands on your Avalon River Cruise, be sure to enjoy a bike ride through the area’s historic towns, and take part in the lively nightlife of the region.
