Holland's finest: Top 5 incentive ideas for spring
February 22, 2016
When spring and summer are in the air sitting in a meeting or business event all day can feel a bit frustrating for delegates. Therefore it is a great idea to get everybody out and about during breaks and get some fresh air. Here are our top incentive ideas for your spring or summer event in Holland.
- Discover the Dutch icons
- Enjoy the outdoors
- Get active
Visit Keukenhof… by foot
A spring meeting or business event in Holland just isn’t complete without a visit to the world renowned Keukenhof. Impress your delegates with a beautiful abundance of Holland’s most famous icon, the tulip. The 7 million bulbs and 800 varieties of tulips will get the creative juices flowing (again) in no time. Keukenhof is open 8 weeks from mid March to mid May each year.
Car rally along the dunes and tulip fields… in old-timers
No need to worry, we’re not talking Formula 1 race cars. This unique rally will enhance the team spirit while cruising through the Dutch dunes and along the tulip fields in colourful old-timer VW Beetles and Citroen Ducks! The car rally is a puzzle that requires various GPS methods and team skills to be solved. The route (and assignments) can be put together according to your wishes. But don’t forget to stop along the way to enjoy the beauty of this unique Dutch landscape!
Discover your meeting destination the Dutch way… by bike
Do like the locals do and discover your event destination by bike. Taking a cycling tour will get you up close and personal with one of the most treasured Dutch icons: the bicycle! All Dutch cities are very bike friendly, but beware the traffic! Each city offers guided bike tours that will let you explore your destination (and beyond) from a different perspective. And that change of perspective might just be what you need to finish your meeting with a bang!
Race through the Port of Rotterdam… by boat
Water is part of the Dutch DNA, so why not add a thrilling water activity to your business event? Take a high-speed boat tour through Rotterdam’s harbour and discover in one hour what would take three hours on a regular harbour tour. The so-called RIB boats have engines with up to 600-horsepower and will take you along Rotterdam harbour’s sights at 70-105 km per hour (40-60 miles per hour). A thrilling experience!
Play a round of golf… at the beach
If you would like to add an extra challenge to your incentive a round of beach golf might be just what you are looking for. Bunkers are a challenge for experienced and beginning golfers alike, so take that golf game up a notch and do a whole course in the sand. You can even do a beach golf tournament. Challenge accepted!
