Experience this amazing event as part of our 2022 river cruising programme

In 2022, the Netherlands will host the spectacular once-in-a-decade phenomena, Floriade Expo, an incredible celebration of all things green.


Floriade takes place only once every 10 years and will be held in Almere, a garden city near Amsterdam from May to October 2022. The theme of the expo will be “Growing Green Cities”.

Explore the many exhibits showcasing green solutions designed to make cities more fun, liveable and sustainable. It promises to be a multi-sensory experience like no other. An encyclopedia of exotic plants, innovative architecture, panoramic cable car rides and intriguing infrastructure created entirely from waste flows, there is much to look forward to at Floriade Expo 2022. Scenic is inviting guests to book now for this unique experience.

Not only do you see a different side to Amsterdam in the summer and autumn, the once-in-a-decade Floriade Expo 2022 runs from May to October too.


Although the spring is a wonderful time to visit Amsterdam and its surrounds, it’s certainly the most popular too, so with Floriade Expo running from May until October of 2022, why not avoid the crowds and plan in a visit with Scenic in the summer or autumn instead on our Windmills, Tulips and Belgian Delights itinerary? During summer, the city comes alive. Bask in the sun along the canal banks as you watch the locals go about their day or whizz through the cycle-friendly streets on an e-bike and explore the lush green countryside at your leisure.

Alternatively, autumn brings out a different side to Amsterdam, the hustle and bustle fade and cosy canal side cafes fill up with locals enjoying Dutch delights like pancakes and cold brew coffee. You can enjoy a more peaceful side to the city, wandering the cobblestone streets on foot and breathing in the history of the Dutch capital. 2022 is the perfect time to visit to take advantage of the once-in-a-decade Floriade on an enchanting Scenic river cruise. You could even add a visit as a pre or post cruise stay on select Europe itineraries.
