The Dutch Coast is an excellent destination for primary schools, reward and enrichment trips. It's a cheaper alternative to most French destinations, but with the proximity of Amsterdam, lovely beaches, Europe's first permanent space exhibition and millions of colourful tulips colouring the landscape in the spring, it is certainly an ideal destination for a school trip abroad.
Our groups are usually based in the safe and lovely seaside resort of Noordwijk. A day trip to Amsterdam is a must; other recommended visits include Zaanse Schans Windmill Village, Efteling Theme Park, Nemo Science Centre and Noordwijk Space expo among others.
