It’s just six months to go until Holland’s once-in-a-decade horticultural display begins – Floriade Expo 2022. There’s something irrepressibly joyful about nature springing to life, and nowhere more so than in the Netherlands.
Taking place just once a decade, Floriade Expo offers nature-loving and sustainability enthusiasts the perfect once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the incredible horticulture and garden displays that the country is so famous for, outside of springtime.
Featuring an encyclopaedic array of exotic plants, innovative architecture and intriguing infrastructure from across the globe – guests can choose to experience the latest circular infrastructure essential for tomorrow’s green cities as they stroll the expansive arboretum, sample health-promoting foods and take in the stunning bird’s-eye view as they soar over the exhibition in an 850-metre cable car.
The luxury all-inclusive river cruise line, Scenic, is offering guests the opportunity to visit the iconic event on its eight-day Dutch sights and Belgian delights itinerary. Sailing a return journey from Amsterdam, guests will also enjoy a guided tour through the architectural capital of the Netherlands, Rotterdam, before visiting a local oyster farm for a tour and tasting and an exploration of the diamond-filled streets of Antwerp. Set within the 17th-century Dutch reformed church of Oosterkerk, guests will be treated to a special choir performance – an exclusive experience for guests travelling with Scenic.
Prices for the eight-day river cruise, including Floriade Expo, start from £2,195 per person based on 11 May 2022 departure on board Scenic Ruby. Alternatively, guests can add a visit to the expo to the beginning or end of selected European river cruises, including the 15-day Jewels of Europe itinerary.
Guests booking before 15 October 2021 will save up to £1,600 per couple, while also benefiting from complimentary private chauffeur-driven transfers. An additional 10 per cent Early Payment Discount applies when paying in full before 30 November 2021.
Scenic’s luxury river cruises are truly all-inclusive, with return flights (or Eurostar travel for those who prefer not to fly), transfers, spacious suites, a personal on board butler, exceptional wining and dining experiences, all shore excursions and gratuities all included.
Guests can book with confidence knowing their booking is covered by Scenic’s Deposit Protection Plan and Flexible Booking Policy which allows for changes up to 60 days prior to departure without any fees*.
