Traditional Tulip Farms
Behind the Scenes




Small public tour from Amsterdam


The Netherlands is internationally known for its flowers. Not a surprise, given that our small country controls sixty percent of the global flower trade. This tour, available only from January until April, shows you where the flower industry in Holland starts; at the tulip farms. Here you are shown how farmers in Holland grow and process tulips the traditional way.

Tour Description

This small public tour for maximum four travelers departs from Amsterdam. You can enjoy the comfort of hotel pick-up and drop-off in Amsterdam to start the tour to Heemskerk, where farmers grow and cultivate tulips on large fields and in greenhouses. Professionals in the flower industry from all over the world visit these particular farms for their quality tulips. As more tulip factories that grow tulips on crates emerge, the farms that grow tulips the traditional way are slowly dying out. And you have the opportunity to have a look behind the scenes of two of such farms.

Enjoy a private guided tour in English and visit two traditional tulip nurseries. A minivan is used to transfer between the two farms. Discover how tulips are grown and cultivated using traditional methods in order to get tulips of the best quality. A brief movie about the process of tulip growing process gives you more insight about the industry. Finally, a visit to the sand fields where the tulips are grown makes the tour complete. Then it's time for the transfer back to Amsterdam, where you are dropped off at the same place as where you started the tour.

CoasTulip is a collaboration between several authentic tulip farms. They have only recently started accommodating visitors. Go off the beaten tracks and become one of the first international visitors!
