Boats and canals are a way of life in Holland, and boating on Dutch waterways lets you see the real Holland. The Friesland region in northern Holland glistens with hundreds of lakes, great for water sports. Locks are left open throughout the summer and lift bridges become a great meeting point for fellow cruisers. Cruise to the cosmopolitan capital of Amsterdam and tour art galleries and museums, visit diamond polishing factories, or simply enjoy a drink at a waterfront bar. Visitors in spring will be treated to gorgeous fields of tulips in the famous Keukenhof Gardens west of Amsterdam, near Haarlem. Traditional windmills border your cruising route and you can moor up in smart new marinas where modern facilities are plentiful.

- All locks and lifting bridges are manned by lock keepers with breaks for lunch and tea, usually 12.00 to 13.00 and 16.15 to 17.15. You need to pay a small charge(1.50 to 2.50 Euros) to pass through locks. So keep loose change handy.
