This full day tour will take us around the IJsselmeer, the former Zuiderzee(South Sea), which was a part of the North Sea until 1932 when the Dutch engineer Lely finished the 30 km (20 miles)dyke that connects North Holland and Friesland and closed this part of the sea.
It is the only man-made object visible from space!!!
We will cross this dyke into Friesland, this special part of The Netherlands, centre of water sports, with their typical farms and their own language.
In Franeker we will visit the oldest working PLANETARIUM in the world, built in his sitting room by Eise Eisinga in 1778.
We will continue to the small old fishing village of Hindeloopen with its museum of ice skating and full of painted furniture.
We'll have and have lunch here or in Balk on Slooten Lake.
Then on to Giethoorn, the "Venice of the North" with its thatched roof houses, where we will take a boat trip in an electric sloop.
Back to Amsterdam trough the polders of Flevoland, 250. 000 acres of new land, reclaimed in 1970.

A Recent Review of this tour

A knowledgeable guide who adapts tour to your requests. Great info on history and medicine in the 18th century but also great at picking lunch spots. I'd do another tour with Rene...oh, I just did...next time I'm in the neighborhood.
