The Hilversum Rugby Festival takes place on Easter Sunday and is one of the best rugby festivals in Europe. The event attracts teams aged from U7s through to U19s with many clubs returning on a yearly basis. You can choose from several holiday resorts such as Center Parcs or Walibi World or you can stay in Amsterdam.
You will arrive at your accommodation and settle in. Feel free to enjoy the facilities at the holiday park as the evening is yours to do as you wish.
As a free day we can arrange a friendly fixture for your team, or alternatively we can arrange an excursion to Walibi Theme Park or Amsterdam City Centre.
You will attend the Hilversum Rugby Festival and play against teams from all over Europe. Following your matches, a presentation will take place before you return to your accommodation to enjoy your final night on tour.
Time to pack up and head home, we hope you have a good time!
