Amazing! 4.7/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 5 Expedia Verified Reviews

As you move away from the busy center of Amsterdam, a gentler pace of life prevails. Emblematic windmills stand on the riverside, and fishing villages retain their traditions. Cheese is freshly produced at organic farms, and shoe makers manufacture clogs, the famous Dutch wooden footwear.

Leaving the city behind, you head north to Zaanse Schans, home to the famous windmills—some of which were erected hundreds of years ago. Refreshed by the country air, you arrive in Volendam, a fishing community whose residents proudly preserve the village charm—some still wear the colorful Dutch costume. On the summer tour, you travel by boat to see the characteristic wooden houses of Marken (in the winter you get there by coach).

Visit a farm to watch how cheese varieties are produced, and then enjoy samples of these artisanal creations. No country tour could be complete without a visit to a clog maker. The clog is a shoe made of wood and is iconic to the Netherlands. Learn about different styles and occasions they’re still worn at. You might even be tempted to try on a pair yourself.
