Alumni Travel: Dutch Landscapes

  • April 6, 2018–April 19, 2018
  • $4,234 per person from Grand Rapids, based on double occupancy

Sept. 22: Due to a cancellation, two spaces may be available on this trip. Call Witte at (616) 942-5112 to inquire.

Explore the rich landscape and geological diversity of the Netherlands! This educational tour includes topics such as the historical development of Amsterdam, the drained peat landscapes of the low western Netherlands, and early and modern flood protection programs and structures.

Our home base will be a hotel in a suburb of Amsterdam, a location which provides excellent public and private transportation links with Amsterdam and the rest of the country. For our daily excursions, we will use both public transportation (tram, metro, bus and train) and a mini-coach. Excursions will include some walking (up to several miles at a time), especially on those excursions using public transportation (see Randstad by Train and Amsterdam by Tram in itinerary).
