Dutch Green Heart Tour

The Green Heart is a polder(typically Dutch farm fields with its windmills and cows) landscape between the cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. The existence of the polder was caused by the peat extraction which occurred several hundreds years ago.
This is a place where Holland is really Holland. Low-lying peat meadows with grazing cows, extensive polders under beautiful skies, areas where you can swim and enjoy the sun and nature. This tour also offers a unique experience of Dutch cultural heritage in the old historic centers of the villages and cities which you will visit and/or will stay in during the night. Next to the typical Dutch windmills and other sightseeings, this tour will offer you characteristic old towns, monumental farms, ancient fortifications and typically Dutch canals and rivers.
