School trips to Dutch Coast
Looking for a seaside destination, bursting with culture and cross-curricular activities? A school trip to the Dutch Coast may just be what you’re looking for. Noordwijk Aan Zee is a delightful resort on the Dutch coast, which boasts a beautiful golden sandy beach and safe, shallow stretches of water. Noordwijk Aan Zee is a superb location to stay at, as the resort is ideally located in the heart of the Dutch bulbfields countryside, and within 45 minutes of both Amsterdam and The Hague.
Valkenburg in southern Holland is another great choice for school groups of all ages. The city has a vast choice of educationally rich excursions – from a space centre and model coal-mine to a circus training school and open air theatre. This historic city has a safe pedestrianised centre that was originally mined by the Romans and there is a labyrinth of caves to explore. Experience seeing 4 countries at once from Valkenburg’s ruined castle and Wilhelmina Tower.
In addition, this area of Holland is a great option for sports groups, with professional grade facilities for sports including football, hockey and basketball.
