About the Netherlands
Renowned for its meandering canals, picturesque windmills, vast tulip fields and pancake flat landscape, the Netherlands houses a perfect balance between historical tradition and modern innovation.
One of the most common and most popular ways to take in the impressive landscape is with the wind in your hair along one of its 32,000km of cycle paths. Bike rental outlets here are like Starbucks in New York, found on every corner, and cycling is a way of life for more than a quarter of its inhabitants.
Dutch cuisine tends to be quite simple and straightforward, but don't confuse that with not being excellent. These days it's split into three regions with a tendency towards a variety of meats in the northeast, dairy in the west with vegetables and pastry the main contributors in the west.
Rainfall is consistent throughout the year with heavier showers in the summer and autumn. Cool winters and mild summers combine with a relatively high level of humidity and temperature fluctuations not just between the seasons but also between day and night tend to quite small.
A beautiful place to visit whether tasting its simple culinary varieties from one region to the next, or racing into the wind on the back a bicycle, its well worth a visit. Book your next trip now.
