We will visit the distribution areas for flowers and plants.

Royal Flora Holland flower auction carts with cut flowers

Wholesale center for florists

Apart from the auction, where wholesale exporters buy larger quantities of flowers and plants, there is also a commercial wholesale center for florists that need small quantities of flowers and plants.
We can visit it if your are interested in this part of the flower business.
After the flower auction, we will start driving to the eastern part of Holland, to Giethoorn

Boat trip on canals at Giethoorn Holland


After approx. 75 minutes by car, we will reach Giethoorn.
We will do a guided canal cruise (not private) of 1 hour on the canals in Giethoorn and on the nearby lake.
Then it is time for lunch and we can choose from a range of restaurants, all along the canals.
When a cosy lunch has finished, we can walk along the 'usually' busy canals with lots of private boats.
