The intricate system of Dutch and Belgian rivers and waterways, while covering a relatively small ‘surface area’, are staggering in their complexity and incredible to explore. That’s why, on a Fred. Olsen river cruise, you can experience the best of them over ten days, for an unforgettable taste of their beauty and remarkable history.
From the picturesque, artificially formed Ijsselmeer Lake and the beautiful Ijssel River – which flows into the Ijsselmeer and by charming, historic cities such as Kampen and Deventer – to the pretty Lek River and the canal linking the Netherlands and Belgium, you’ll sail stunning scenic routes on board Brabant.
Along the way, you have a chance to see and explore the Netherlands’ most famous waterways: Amsterdam’s network of iconic canals. Plus, there’s an opportunity to visit the sprawling, colourful and fragrant Keukenhof tulip garden, a pilgrimage for many on a springtime visit to the 'Kingdom of the Low Countries'. Elsewhere, legendary Kinderdijk presents a postcard-worthy photo op, with its 19 UNESCO-listed windmills and glorious polder lands, while there is a contrasting mix of small gabled communities on cobbled streets such as Hoorn and Kampen; metropoles such as Rotterdam and Arnhem; and sparkling Antwerp to enchant you too.
