We recommend starting in Almere. During a short walk in this interesting new town, you will hear and see how this hypermodern city with 200.000 people was realized on the sea bottom in only a few decades.
The fishermen’s harbor, on the former island Urk has a rich history. Urk is also the best place to eat fish.
Abandoned Schokland is also a former island. Schokland is UNESCO World Heritage. This extraordinary place has no harbor anymore as the island is now surrounded by reclaimed land. The Schokland residents have left the island a long time ago.
DURATION: approx. 8 to 14 hrs, or as part of a multi-day program.
+ Preferably not on Sundays and Mondays. By car or minibus.
+ Adaption or extension of this program is possible (and recommended...) e.g a visit to one of the old and charming ‘Hanze-cities’ (Deventer, Zutphen, Zwolle) 'Venice of the north' Giethoorn, and/or a visit to the Afsluitdijk (the famous enclosure dike). Ask us for a proposal!
