Would You Like to Experience the Netherlands LIVE and Up-Close Every Month? 

Then grab your suitcase and  join the Netherlands' #1 Livestream Virtual Travel Club for people everywhere who love The Dutch Way Of Life.

Do Any of These Sound Familiar To You?

You were born in the Netherlands, emigrated abroad when you were young, but for whatever reason, you aren't easily able to travel and visit to the country you love
You lived in the Netherlands once before, fell in love with the place and the culture, and would LOVE to relocate back to the country...but you don't know where to begin...
You travel to the Netherlands regularly and know the country fairly well, but you're having difficulties finding, new and interesting places "off the beaten track"..
You've got Dutch family or heritage but live outside the Netherlands, and want to bring your roots and your ancestry alive...(you'd love to have access to folk and friends in Holland)...
You're fascinated by Dutch Culture, History and "Everything Dutch" but you're missing a community of like-minded people and a platform where you can learn and discover more about your passion
You understand some Dutch, but not enough to be able to research or read the content on the internet that cover the topics of Dutch History and Culture that you REALLY want to know about...

"If any of them DO sound familiar, then you'll know how difficult it can be to find good advice, quality content and a 'gezellig' support community..."

That's The Reason We Started This Club

We were tired of hearing how good people weren't able travel to the the places they loved and missed in the Netherlands.

Expensive flights to the Netherlands and travel restrictions mean you never get to see the country you love (or at least not as often as you would like)...
Lack of good quality, in-depth English-language information & content on Dutch History, Culture and places around the Netherlnds off the beaten track...
Confusing online forums that share half-baked advice on relocating to, living and working in Nederland
Travel and tourist recommendation websites that focus only on Amsterdam and the "hotspots" and ignore the rest of this breathtaking country...
Trying to reconnect to, and find out more about your Dutch heritage is so hard without any contacts in the Netherlands...

Thankfully, that's all behind you.

What Do Current Club Members Say?

"As an Explorer, I discovered a whole world of like minded people who love the Netherlands as much as I do! More than just virtual tours, their unique interactive online activities create a true personalized  experience like no other. Every time  I participate in an online activity, or tour,  I am greeted as if I just walked through the front door of a friends house. I don't feel like I am a member of an online Club, I feel like I belong with friends."

What Makes Our Club Different?

Member-Led 

In our Club, our members have the reins. We are your eyes and ears in the Netherlands and its our aim to show you the places and tell the stories that you want to hear. You decide and direct the pathways we take!

Authentic Content

You can see highly-polished, tourist videos from Dutch tourist hotspots all over social media. We do it differently. Armed with our video camera, we create authentic, REAL experiences from places in most channels never go.

Personal Support

Whether you're planning to visit the Netherlands, relocate, or start a business here. Our little team is on hand to guide and help you. And we're always just a Private Message away for our Explorer Club Members 

We're in Nederland

We live in the Netherlands and spend much of our time connecting with local experts and travelling the 12 provinces to gather stories and capture 'Hidden Holland' on behalf of our community.

'Virtual' Travelling

Even though you might not be able to travel to the Netherlands, you can still experience the country and the landscape via our Virtual Travel Videos & Live Shows, which are chosen by you, our Club Members.

100% Commitment

We eat, sleep and breathe The Dutch Way of Life. The Explorers Club is 100% of our focus. We love helping our members explore their "Dutch Connection" and plan to be around for a long time.

Meet Your Guides - Bob & Adele

Hoi! - We're Bob Buckley & Adele Jackson, Creators of The Dutch Way Explorers Club - and we've spent the last 5 years helping thousands of people across the world, just like you, to reconnect to their Dutch Heritage and discover "off the beaten track" destinations in the Netherlands.

We have helped thousands of people further their passion for Dutch Culture, Lifestyle, History and Landscape, via the Videos, Livestreams and Articles published via our Facebook channel "The Dutch Way of Life"  started in 2015.

Amazingly, over the last 5 years we've attracted a global community of over 50,000 people who enjoy our Livestream Virtual Tours and Events.

After moving back to the country from the UK and starting our own travel media company here in August 2019, we're now based in an idyllic little village in the Dutch Province of North Brabant called Moerdijk and spend most of our time travelling to the four corners of the Netherlands  - at the request of our community members - to film and broadcast our Live Tours and personalised Dutch heritage Adventures via Facebook.

And we've made it our mission to explore and discover Hidden Holland beyond Amsterdam to the world and be your eyes and ears in the Netherlands!

Having relocated to the Netherlands twice in the last 10 years out of a deep love and passion for the country, the culture and the people, we also help our members and followers with advice and guidance on doing the same. 

Above all, it's our mission to use our combined 30 years of experience in languages, teaching, storytelling, community building,  video production and travelling through the Netherlands, in order to help you reconnect to the places and stories you love, from around the country.

If you're Dutch, or just 'Dutch at Heart', we look forward to having you in our community - stay safe and keep it gezellig - hope to see you on the inside.

Gezellig Social Community

Gezelligheid is at the heart of the Dutch Way Of Life. That typically Dutch feeling of cosiness, togetherness and friendly inclusion that is so hard to describe in English. Well, gezelligheid is at the heart of the Explorers Club too. That's why we offer our members a cosy Private 'Clubhouse' where you can ask questions, share your experiences and stay in daily contact with Bob & Adele in the Netherlands. The Clubhouse is also the place you'll be able to watch the member-only Livestreams, Videos and Podcasts and meet and chat with other Explorer Club Members from around the world!


Personalised Advice & Support

Whether you're planning to relocate to the Netherlands in the future and need some personal guidance. Or whether you'd like some 'insider-tips' on special locations, attractions and places to visit so you can organise an unforgettable holiday or trip to the Lowlands with exerts who can help you plan. You can use the online Advice Center inside the Club to get personal advice from Bob and Adele AND tap into the collective knowledge of other Explorer Club Members who have an amazing range of skills and experience!


Monthly Courses & Meetups - LIVE!

When you become a Club Member, you'll automatically receive a personal invitation every month to join our LIVE Online Members Meetup "The Explorers Circle." This is a chance for you and the rest of our members to connect, face-to-face, and get to know each other a little better! Each month, you'll be able to submit questions for Bob and Adele which will be answered during the call. We'll also discuss the locations you'd like us to visit for our LIVE Hidden Holland Roadtrip Shows AND you'll be able to make suggestions for future locations. The main thing is, you get a chance to enjoy a little "gezelligheid" and contribute to the direction of the Club.

Is The Explorers Club Right For You?

Who is it for?

People who enjoy exploring and discovering Dutch Culture, History, Lifestyle and Landscape, and want to delve deeper into their own specific interests and passion for the Netherlands, with a community of like-minded individuals from around the world.
Someone who enjoys being part of a community and who is motivated to contribute and get involved in the direction of our videos and the decisions that are made in the Club.  
People who  are happy to share their own experiences, stories and discoveries so others can learn too. Even better if you like encouraging others and celebrating their success and supporting them on their journey!
Someone who is open-minded, adventurous, curious eager to learn. If you class yourself as an Adventurer and enjoy meeting new people and discovering new things, AND combining it with your love for the Netherlands, then our Club could be a great place for you to find your tribe and explore The Dutch Way of Life.

Who is it NOT for?

People looking for highly-polished, blockbuster-style travel content from the hottest Dutch tourist spots. We create and publish simple, authentic, immersive videos and livestreams from the places and stories that are requested by our members from around the lesser-known places in what we call "Hidden Holland." 
Close-minded, 'ongezellig' individuals who are looking for a place to vent and moan about the Netherlands - we are a global community of positive, passionate people who want a safe place to explore experiences, questions and ideas without discrimination or disrespect from others.
People who want a bespoke "Done-For-You" Ancestry Research Service, Relocation Service or Travel Agency Service. We are not professional researchers, travel agents or relocation specialists - but we can offer you guidance and advice, based on our own extensive experiences and the expertise of our contacts here in the Netherlands.

"I came across the Explorers Club last winter when l found myself in a deep corona depression, not being able to travel any more at all due to the lockdown.  Joining the Club was one of my best decisions ever. The Explorers Club offers so much more: info in customs and history of the Netherlands, exchange with people who love the Netherlands as much as l do, the chance to make new friends and the option to plan upcoming trips and events together.  That's what l call gezelligheid!"

"Tracing my Dutch ancestors back through the centuries has been a passion of mine for many years. Becoming an Explorer Club member has added colour to those black & white facts. As Bob and Adele strolls down the streets of a Dutch village or city I can picture my ancestors walking, working, and living in this beautiful country and feel closer to the Netherlands as a result!"

"I'm Dutch, but I have a very busy but full life in Gouda, I lived abroad  for 10 years, (France and England and I'm married to a English man) so I do not know Holland very well. I also do not get a lot of time to travel these days, so as an Explorer Club Member I love to watch the live shows and it's nice to help other members with questions about the Dutch language and habits. I love what Bob and Adele do!"
