Floortje is Holland’s best known travel show presenter. She’s been traveling the world extensively since 1999, and has visited a great many destinations since. Currently she hosts “3 op Reis” for what will be it’s eight season.
Trips Floortje has made include, to name just a few, one over land from Amsterdam to Bhutan, she’s traversed the Arctic Circle and she has visited numerous remote islands all across the world such as Amsterdam island and Pitcairn Island. Probably her most inspiring journey has been a trip to the isolated and remote North Korea. Being only the second travelshow ever to visit this remote country and thus making Floortje one of the few tv-presenters ever to present a show from within and about this county. Yes, the travelling spirit runs thick through Floortje’s veins and yet there are so many places she still wants to discover! Being at home for more than a week hardly ever happens for Floortje.
Dennis is the ‘tough guy’ among the presenters: On his trips he’s always on the lookout for adventure! For BNN, he has travelled to some of the most inhospitable and rugged places our planet has to offer, everywhere from the Brazilian jungle to the Australian Outback. Most recently he explored the European Union. By visiting all twenty-seven (!) EU-countries in a single season, he showed our viewers that further isn't always better when it comes to traveling!)
Furthermore Dennis really enjoys going on cross-country road trips, while being on the look out for the extreme and the unexpected along the way. After undertaking on such a demanding, strenuous trip Dennis really enjoys some relaxing in style!
Patrick is BNN’s chairman and has been hosting a great number of television shows for this network. His heart lies first and foremost with the history of the countries he visits.
Patrick genuinely wants to discover what happened in different countries and what made a country and its people into what it is today. In “3 op Reis” he grabs the opportunity to discover the different and intriguing stories the countries of this world have to offer. More than any other presenter Patrick looks at the social aspect of a country as well as its beauty! One of his latest trips was to Myanmar, a fascinating country that recently has implemented major reforms.
Nicolette is our youngest presenter, and yet she already has a lot of travel experience! She has traveled the world as a model and for different BNN television shows.
Nicolette enjoys travelling on a tight budget to a large variety of countries and cities. Because of this she has backpacked trough Europe on numerous occasions, either by train, plane or car. As of late she's been citytripping her way through Europe, visiting inspiring cities such as Istanbul, Edinburgh and Granada!
The newest addition to our team. This 23-year old has seen quite some countries at this early age, but is eager to see so many more. Starting out at 3 op Reis Summertime she went on to host our main program with trips to Curacao & Bonaire. For Summertime she already visited great places such as Bordeaux, Seville & the Portuguese Algarve. Coming season Geraldine will visit a couple of great destinations and check out some local festivals!

3 op Reis Profile
The Dutch travel show '3 op Reis' (translated as 'Channel 3 Travels') is a TV-series about travelling and tourism. It's broadcast every Sunday evening at prime time (8pm) on one of the best viewed networks in the Netherlands!
Our presenters travel the world in search of the most inspiring, beautiful and unique travel destinations, resulting in two travel reports per episode. Our travels vary from long journeys to remote and unknown areas to visits to exciting cities and accessible destinations in- and outside of Europe.
In our 30-minute episodes we want to inspire and inform our relatively young audience (or even more important: young at heart) with a mixture of our presenters' experiences and adventures, beautiful shots of the destinations, interaction with local people and the hidden gems no traveller wants to miss! Especially this last point is a major aspect within our show. We want to show the things you won’t normally see. Go off the beaten track basically!
'3 op Reis' is the leading travel program on Dutch television and is produced by a team of passionate travelers. We've just finished our sixth season, with good reviews and even better ratings (800.000 - 900.000 viewers weekly). Because of this success we've made a spin-off of our show as well: ‘3 op Reis Summertime.’ This show has a unique character and its own audience. ‘3 op Reis Summertime’ shows the viewer the best holiday spots which have not been ruined by mass tourism yet.
Sustainable travel is an important element for us and we hope to, not only entertain, but educate people as well. For more information and previous episodes, please browse our website.
