Full description

Make your way to the province of Overijssel, home to the Orchideeenhoeve and picturesque Giethoorn. Watch the landscape of the Netherlands’ newest province Flevoland pass by, which was built on reclaimed land, as your guide shares interesting information about the Netherlands. Upon arrival at the Orchid Farm, your guide will set up a meeting point and time for later. Explore the park at your own pace. Let yourself be enchanted by the exceptional flowers and plants, and surround yourself with more than 2,000 fuchsias, begonias, geraniums, and busy Lizzies in the fairytale SkyFlora Garden. Here, the flowers form an endless cloud above your head.

Search for butterflies, caterpillars, and chrysalises in Butterfly Valley with a wildlife guide. Hear all about their life span, life cycle, feeding habits, camouflage, and the most eye-catching butterflies. Meet with your guide for the transfer to Giethoorn, the village without roads. Enjoy a one-hour boat ride through the village canals to experience Giethoorn from the water. After all, it is the mode of transport in Giethoorn in this village with beautiful farmhouses along the canals.
