DAY 1 - London to Amsterdam
Today we’ll meet in the heart of London, throwing high fives to each other in recognition of the epic decision we all made to kick off the new year in Amsterdam. Let’s do this!
Shortly before jumping on our ferry for France, we’ll be taking in the English coastline beauty of the White Cliffs of Dover, that owe their colour to a composition of chalk.
Off the ferry we arrive in the port town of Calais - French soil! We travel north via Belgium before reaching ... Amsterdam!
Time for a team squeal - we're here! Home of good times and cuteness galore. Fun fact: the city has 1539 bridges, 165 canals, and 2500 house boats. Yes, you read that right, and it's all here for you to explore. A tour of the city to get the facts on the city and all it's glory is up first, then it's dinner are on us. Later, the night is yours to start getting familiar with the scene that will ring in your best night of the year - we're calling it early!
DAY 2 - Amsterdam
First thing's first - sleep in. You're going to need some energy preserved to get you through the evening ahead. Second on your to do list is a whole lot of exploring. Today we can opt onto a canal bike ride, explore the endless museums of the city like the Rijks, taste the local Heineken drop in its true home, make a sobering stop at Anne Frank Museum, and that's just the tip of the iceberg of goodness to be found. For those that like the laid-back approach, do some shopping, or just kick back amongst their famed cafe culture.The Heineken Brewery, the Van Gogh Museum, a tram ride, whatever floats your final day of the year boat. Tonight we meet up, find a local spot for dinner (pancakes for dessert are a must in these parts we'll have you know) then hit the clubs complete with some free drinks and free entry. Here's to making this sort of VIP treatment a common theme of the New Year.
DAY 3 - Amsterdam including Edam
This morning we’ll head into the beautiful countryside for a taste of tradition.
You know the cheese, and now you’re going to know the place that pioneered it. This morning we’ll head into the countryside to get acquainted with all things Edam, visiting a local clog and cheese makers house.
Treating ourselves to drinks as we cruise through the canals, we’ll see the city illuminated by night, getting excited for the possibilities of tomorrow.
DAY 4 - Depart Amsterdam
Pack your bags and get ready for a nice long nap, or a lot of reminiscing with the squad and a chat about a reunion tour for next year on our ride back to London.
Amsterdam NYE friends, we salute you! You rang in the new year in ultimate wanderlusting spirit by kicking it in Amsterdam. Carry on adventuring your way through the next 12-months and you can’t go wrong.
