Almere in Holland will be the stage for the Floriade Expo 2022 International horticultural exposition. Held once every 10 years, Floriade is the park to enjoy the scent and colour of flowers, plants, vegetables, and fruit. The Expo offers 40 inspiring country presentations, a spectacular greenhouse complex, a cable car over the Floriade Park, pavilions with sustainable innovations and a vibrant arts and culture programme. Much more than a garden festival and flower show, Floriade is a state-of-the-art showcase for the latest trends in gardening, horticulture, and the environment. Our break also includes a guided tour of the Royal Delft Museum & Factory, an interesting visit to the flower auction at Aalsmeer, the famous cheese town of Edam and free time in Volendam.
