Netherlands

Netherlands River CruiseThe Rhine travels through much of the Netherlands and Belgium along the Dutch and Belgian Waterways before it empties into the North Sea. This extensive waterway system winds its way across the northern parts of these two countries, passing by ancient settlements, vibrant tulip fields, and flat agricultural land. The country, located on the Rhine, Maas, and Scheldt river deltas, owes its existence to the remarkable achievements of hydraulic engineering that have made it possible to control the flow of water. Half of the Netherlands is still below sea level, but the country's rich, pancake-flat polders are divided by a system of canals and ditches that regulate the water table under vast, cloudless skies. Meanwhile, miles of dunes defend the country's lengthy coastline to the west and north. Included in this category is the beautiful canal ring that surrounds the historic heart of Amsterdam, the fabled city of the Netherlands.
