Attractions in Holland
Holland is well known for its flat landscape, vibrant tulip fields and quaint windmills but it has so much more to offer. Amsterdam is just a short hop from Newcastle on the ferry and is a wonderfully colourful city in which to start your journey. See paintings from some of the great Dutch artists such as Rembrandt and Van Gogh or hire a bike and take in the sights using the famous cycle paths that cover over 400km around the city.
From our port in IJmuiden near Amsterdam you can explore the rest of Holland easily by car and see some of its lesser known gems, including the long coastline to the west and north that's marked by mile upon mile of sand dunes and sandy beaches. You will also discover towns and villages with fairy-tale townhouses, pretty canals and picturesque church spires. If travelling from Dover, Holland is a 2 ½ to 3-hour drive from our French ports in Dunkirk and Calais.
