Itinerary

01

Day 1: London to Amsterdam

Meet up with your Contiki team as we make our way to Amsterdam to start your Christmas, Dutch-style. We’ll head across Belgium before hitting the cool & relaxed city of Amsterdam, where the fun really starts. These canal lined streets are buzzing with little cafés, restaurants & filled with cyclists weaving their way along the cobbles. Enjoy an included dinner before heading out to explore Amsterdam by night. Known for its colourful Red Light District, you’ll take a walking tour of these famous streets to see what it’s all about, while learning about Amsterdam’s history. Later, why not keep it moving with a fun night out. There are heaps of pumping clubs & pubs so ask your Tour Manager for some tips on where to head.

Day 2: Amsterdam

Gelukkig Kerstfeest! Take it easy this morning & have a late start, before a delicious Christmas feast with all the trimmings. As Amsterdam is quite compact, it’s perfect for exploring on two wheels if you’re feeling like something different after lunch. Go local & maybe hire a bike with some friends & make your way through Vondel Park, or simply weave your way through the city’s quaint streets. Later, you could try some Dutch beer at a cute little café or restaurant before getting ready for your last night in Amsterdam. Tonight, get into the Christmas spirit with your travel buddies as we’ll give you the option to see the city from a different angle on a canal cruise.

Day 3: Amsterdam

Roll like a local as you head out & explore in your own time today. Maybe park up at a café & sink your teeth into some succulent Dutch pastries or pancakes. Shop on the busy Kalverstraat, get a culture fix at a gallery or try food from the world in the multi-cultural cafés & restaurants through the city or just people watch & soak up the pre-Christmas vibes in Dam Square. There are so many places to go, from the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum & the ‘I Amsterdam’ sign to the Heineken Brewery. Take off with a map, jump on a tram & explore the streets. Tonight, grab yourself a bite at one of the many local restaurants & then get the Christmas spirit going with a drink at our favourite local nightspot.
