Holland Geography

Prices from: £209

Holland offers some wonderful opportunities to study topics relevant to the new Geography curriculum, including a detailed study of water management and sustainability issues.

The Netherlands has a history of living and working with water and its unpredictable power. Approximately 30% of the Netherlands lies below sea level, so the Dutch have become real masters in knowing how to keep their feet dry! Many Dutch people live on land protected by dykes or even on floating houses or house boats.  Visit the Netherlands and learn more about the problems they face and the policies and schemes in place to counteract them. The Netherlands is a convenient and good value option for your next Geography trip.
