Tulip fields helicopter flight
Did you know that the area of Keukenhof doesn’t have the largest amount of flower fields of the Netherlands? There are several areas where the fields are much larger and more frequent. One of these areas is the NO polder and the tulip festival STEPNOP. They have a 80 KM car route along all the fields, there is a tulip information center where you can find hundreds of different tulips and it has the largest Mondriaan tulip field of the Netherlands. Next to this tulip field there will be a helicopter flight platform. Last year the Tulip fields helicopter flight was one of my bucket list experiences and I wanted to make sure you could experience this too.
It will be a personal experience in a small helicopter for two persons and a helicopter pilot. And you will have a perfect view over the fields, see the modern windmills, the water and the Mondriaan tulip field.
Make sure you have a (rental) car with you, there is no public transportation to this tulip festival.
Make sure you book your tickets in advance because there is a limited space, only when the fields are in bloom. See more information about the helicopter tickets here.

Where is the NO polder ? FLEEVOLAND and Emmerlord ?
Yes in the vicinity of the town Creil.
I recommend getting away from the traditional tulip area and going to the other places, which are not too far. The fields are much, much larger and there are few to no other tourists! As far as helicopters go I’m afraid to fly in one. I’ll stick with my bicycle
Riding a bicycle along the flower fields is a wonderful thing to do.
we would be in the Netherlands from April 11 to April 15. Do you think we would have a chance to see some field of tulips in bloom?
Have a look therefor more information about the blooming of the tulips and keep an eye to our weekly newsletter. http://tulipsinholland.com/2016/11/when-are-the-tulips-in-bloom-in-2017/
what will be the status of tulip fields on around May 4th to May 6th?Is there any chance to see tulips this year in the fields?
During a regular year the tulip fields will be headed during the first week of May. We have an early springtime so these fields might be headed. It all depends on the weather and temperature in the upcoming weeks
