BEYOND THE BUSTLE…
Our main focus lies with Kampen and the east of the Netherlands. This part of the country is still relatively unknown to most tourists, but offers an intimate glimpse into Dutch history and culture. Here, beyond the bustle of the big city, you will enjoy the relaxed pace of life offered by well-preserved medieval towns and picturesque villages along the IJssellake.
We have a few suggestions to help you get started planning your tours. Itineraries can be combined or itemized.
