Beauty of the Netherlands Tour

About This Trip

Hallo! (Hello)! We’re excited to invite you to our Beauty of the Netherlands Tour. You’ll be exploring the Netherlands with our Editor-in-Chief, Annette for 7 days from April 18-24, 2024. This private tour was created and curated by the Fat Girls Traveling team.

With a handful of visits to the Netherlands under her belt, Annette regrets never visiting during tulip season, so that’s what we’re doing! We’ll also be exploring places outside the city like Haarlem and getting spoiled during our spa day.

This spring Netherlands Tour will begin in Amsterdam and end in Rotterdam. Not only will our group do the Amsterdam classics like a walk through the Red Light District, canal cruises, and visiting the museums in Museumsplien. We’ll also learn about the history of Haarlem and get to see the amazing Gothic buildings in Rotterdam.

Our Beauty of the Netherlands Tour is just one of five stops on our Fat Girls World Tour 2024.
