Floriade Expo | July 2022

05th May 2021
About the festival

You’ll be able to enjoy a range of innovative exhibitions from cities, countries and businesses and wander among unique collections of trees and flowers that support the motif.  Almere – the event’s host city – will share its vision and philosophy on the ‘green city’, a topic on everyone’s lips.

There will be four themes to discover at the event: food, energy, health and green. In addition, the 2022 Floriade Expo will see a ‘Green City Arboretum’ at the heart of the impressive 60-acre site.

Accomodation

We shall be staying in the modern Best Western Plus Plaza 4* Hotel in Almere, an international and modern design hotel with 222 luxurious rooms in various categories and sizes. The hotel is located next to the central station of Almere in the centre of the cozy City of Almere. Shops and restaurants are just a stone’s throw away from the hotel.

Our short break will include entry to the Expo, a trip to Amsterdam with canal boat ride; the Zaanse Schans historic windmill village, Delft, Volendam and Marken.

Located just north of Amsterdam, the Zaanse Schans offers a perfectly preserved glimpse into the Netherlands' industrial past with its traditional houses, windmills, warehouses and workshops. Many of the Zaanse Schans' characteristic village houses are now museums, gift shops or workshops while others are still used as private residences. Some of the Zaanse Schans' remaining windmills are also open to the public.

On our return journey we shall spend a few hours in the beautiful Belgian city of Bruges.

We will travel in comfort with complementary refreshments included on the journey. Channel crossing by Eurotunnel.

The price for members will be; £545 (twin or Double) + £150 Single Supplement, Non members; £595 on a Half Board - Dinner, Bed & Breakfast basis.
