Team events outdoor

Verita’s Visit Holland creates team events outdoor. These include team building activities, social & side events at conferences or meetings, company outings, family gatherings, bachelor parties, birthdays, anniversaries.

The idea is to make you experience the authentic Dutch way of life, outside Amsterdam. Most – cycle- tours, activities and events in the Netherlands take place in the Dutch countryside. Focus is on outdoor events, but a combination with indoor visits is always possible!

It will be my pleasure to help you organise outdoor events in the Netherlands like:

This is a small selection of all the team events outdoor and indoor Verita’s Visit Holland can help you organise. I already have had the opportunity to work for European, Asian and American families, companies, tour operators and travel agents and am looking forward to creating the best day trip, excursion or activity for you.

The Gouda food tour is a mouthwatering city walk that makes you taste the best of the Gouda, city of cheese and stroopwafels – syrup waffles- We start on the main square for a visit to the weighing house where you find out how farmers’ cheese is made and traded for over centuries. When you have seen enough, it’s time to test your Gouda cheese knowledge with a small cheese tasting. Are you able to differentiate the ages and farmers’cheese from factory cheese?

While your food guide tells you about the city and its food, you can smell the sweet scent of stroopwafels. Your next stop is a stroopwafel bakery. Now it’s time to get your hands dirty! Bake that fresh, warm & yummie syrup waffle and listen to the tasty stories of the syrup waffle baker.
