The Netherlands consists of 12 provinces, including the famous North Holland and South Holland. The region of Gelderland where our Nicols base at Kerkdriel is located is undoubtedly lesser known, but as the immediate neighbour to the two major provinces of Holland, it offers remarkable opportunities when it comes to exploring via a boating holiday. On offer are flat landscapes composed of channels and drawbridges, fields of colourful tulips, pretty windmills and so many cycle tracks!

Please note: in Netherlands, the conditions and specificities of navigation require a very complete instruction to navigation, which takes about 1-1.5 hours. Therefore, a supplement of 50€ has to be paid directly at the spot.
