Excursions & Visits
An excursion into Amsterdam is recommended, and we can book a guided stadium tour of the impressive Johan Cruijff Arena if requested in advance. Tours of the Heineken brewery in Amsterdam can be organised midweek. The Walibi theme park is a popular day out, and there are loads of on site activities if you stay at recommended Center Parcs accommodation.
Flight and coach packages are both available. The coach journey is approximately 4 hours from Calais, although crossings are also possible into Rotterdam, Amsterdam and the Hook of Holland from Hull, Newcastle and Harwich respectively. The short flight to Schiphol airport is well served from most regional airports.
Where to stay
Noordwijk aan zee
A popular beach resort on the Dutch coast and just 40 minutes from Amsterdam, Noordwijk is a great base for school and club hockey teams to tour to Holland. With dozens of top teams to play against in the region, you will be well placed for tournament and match arrangements with guest coaching with international players also available to add an extra dimension to your programme.
Amsterdam has much to offer the discerning tourist of course including museums and canals galore, but let's face it, most groups choose Amsterdam for its multitude of bars, clubs and the famous red light district. We use a number of budget hotels and hostels in the heart of the city on bed and breakfast basis, ideal for rugby groups, with 2-8 sharing a room. Hotel upgrades are available on request to suit your budget. Youth groups and school teams may prefer the option of our family run hotels on the coast at Noordwijk aan zee instead.
Center Parcs resorts
There are several Center Parcs resorts in Holland which are an ideal base for a rugby tour. Each has an indoor Aqua Mundo tropical pool and numerous other on site activities.
Cottage accommodations are typically available for between 2 - 12 persons depending on the resort.
