As you follow this floral-infused road trip, you'll find yourself driving along the west coast, past beautiful beaches, and through stunning parks and gardens that fill the country with colour.

The Flower Route - Tulips, hyacinths, narcissi, and daffodils of every color stretch to the horizon along this drive through western Holland. Starting in Haarlem, the northernmost point of the Bollenstreek Route (locally known as the Bloemen Route) and running approximately 25 miles south to Leiden, this drive takes in the densest concentration of flower fields, with alternating strips of flowers shooting in thick ribbons of primary colors to the flat Dutch horizon. The queen of this nonstop flower extravaganza is the tulip, bursting out in every candy color. Flower sellers set up stalls along the road and sell garlands to adorn your car. But it isn't just the beds of blooms that make this drive eye-popping. What you'll also pass along the route is the sturdy billion-dollar industry that those seemingly wispy flowers support: the auction houses that sell the flowers; the public gardens that showcase the flowers; the museums and private gardens that celebrate the horticultural tradition; a series of gabled, Vermeer-worthy villages that grew rich on the flower industry; and two elegant cities, Haarlem and Leiden, that offer as much history and canal-side beauty per square block as Amsterdam itself.

Keukenhof Gardens - No trip to the Dutch Bulbfields is complete without a visit to Keukenhof Gardens, which is known as 'The Greatest Flower Show on Earth'. Every year, almost a million people flock from all over the world to see the world's largest bulb garden come to life with displays of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils.

Loosdrecht is known for its beautiful lakes, the Loosdrechtse Plassen, which attract thousands of visitors every year. The lakes are a hotspot for the Dutch 'well-to-do', with several exclusive yachting clubs and restaurants lining the shores. During your stay in Loosdrecht you'll enjoy a half day cruise on the lakes and river Vecht.
