The Netherlands has had a love-hate relationship with water for centuries. This is not surprising since a quarter of this country is sitting below sea level; the lowest point is at almost 7 meters! This means that the Dutch have raised a large part of their country from the sea and lakes. From the air, from the skies, there is an intricate patchwork of meadows and ditches visible. The water in our country also makes the Dutch skies special and has inspired many famous dutch painters over the centuries. The Netherlands has much more to offer such as beautiful fortified cities like Naarden Vesting, the metropolis of Rotterdam, the authentic Amsterdam, beautiful forests and heaths, an extensive coastline and the Wadden Islands. Typically Dutch are the traditional Dutch fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, the cheese markets in Alkmaar and Gouda, the Tulip fields and the windmills of Zaanse Schans and Kinderdijk. Add this 'small' intriguing country to the bucket list.
Fly with us over historic defence bastions such as Naarden Vesting, Muiderslot and Pampus. Enjoy wonderful views of the canal network and the historic city centre of Amsterdam. Combined with Amsterdam Central station, where old meets new, the IJ river with its superb modern architecture and Amsterdam Noord which is currently undergoing development. We then fly on to the rugged countryside of the Oostvaardersplassen lakes and Lelystad, where we also circle above the Batavia VOC ship, a fantastic reconstruction of this piece of iconic Dutch history. The airspace above the city of Amsterdam is controlled by Schiphol Air Traffic Control. The result may be that air traffic control adjusts our route and that Amsterdam is at a greater distance than initially expected.
Texel International Airport
Texel became an island in 1170 when it was separated from the mainland by the All Saints' Flood. The landscape on Texel is very different from that of the other Wadden islands. The other Wadden islands mainly consist of sand and dune areas. After the Ice Age, a thick boulder clay layer remained on Texel, making the soil much more fertile and allowing the land to develop differently. Fly with us and discover this beautiful island!
Rotterdam The Hague Airport
Come with us on a romantic and beautiful trip to the gorgeous Windmills of Kinderdijk. Kinderdijk is a unique phenomenon and a UNESCO World Heritage area. There is no other place in the world as complete as this one where you can find the complete history of water management, a Dutch speciality, at a single location! Enjoy the shimmering water and lovely green pastures of the ‘polder’, topped off with the stunning view of the city of Rotterdam.
Midden Zeeland Airport
Seals are not that hard to find around Zeeland. The beautiful nature, the clean water, the environment and the peace and quiet have a positive influence on the seals and therefore large seal colonies live off the coast. They laze a lot on the beach and on the sandbanks where they enjoy the sun. And with a bit of luck, porpoises can be spotted from the air (The smallest type of whale that has about the size of a dolphin). A good way to spot these animals is by plane!
Rotterdam The Hague Airport
A trip to Rotterdam isn't complete without viewing the biggest port of Europe from up in the air! See and experience the heart of this area and enjoy a flight over the city centre afterwards. This region is one of the most important engines driving the Dutch economy and defines the character of the city on the Maas river. Anyone who wants to truly experience Rotterdam has to embrace the port as well- and a good way to do this is by plane!
Midden Zeeland Airport
More than half of the Netherlands lies below sea level. The Delta Works were built to keep everyone safe and to prevent a recurrence of the 1953 flood disaster. 3 locks, 6 dams and 5 storm surge barriers form the Delta Works. They are the largest defence system against floods in the Netherlands. Anyone who wants to truly experience the Netherlands has to embrace the Delta Works as well- and a good way to do this is by plane!
