Day 1: Individual arrival in Utrecht
Your cycling holiday starts in Utrecht. The town was built around the cathedral, which rises up from the centre, looking down over the houses and buildings. It's nigh on impossible to get lost in Utrecht, as you never lose sight of the cathedral. The centre of the town is small enough to be explored on foot. All along the picturesque waterways, you'll find unusual boutiques and lovely markets.
Day 2: Utrecht – Amsterdam, approx. 65 km
After breakfast, you cycle along the Vecht and Amstel rivers to Amsterdam. The elegant country estates and magical tea pavilions shape the romantic flair of this region. The Netherland's unique capital bids you welcome. There's a lot to discover in Amsterdam. Cycle along the canals and admire the many house boats. Romantic places, time-honoured buildings, proud museums and the unusual atmosphere turn a visit to this city into a real adventure.
Day 3: Amsterdam – Zandvoort aan Zee, approx. 35 km
Leaving the canal city, the first half of today’s route leads you to Haarlem. Since the invention of the printing press, Haarlem has been known as a printing city. The oldest daily paper which is still in circulation is printed in Haarlem. The second half of today’s route leads you towards Zandvoort. The town with its extensive sandy beaches offers a refreshing end to today’s route.
Day 4: Zandvoort aan Zee – Scheveningen, approx. 45 km
Through the vast dune area you will be cycling to Scheveningen, a neighbourhood of Den Haag right on the North Sea coast. On your way there, you should definitely stop at the Keukenhof. The gardens are any flower enthusiasts’ paradise. Scheveningen itself is a seaside resort with a magnificent beach promenade, a pier with an observation point, and a fishing port.
Day 5: Scheveningen – Gouda, approx. 65 km
You should start off your day with a stroll through The Hague. Your destination of Gouda is most famous for the cheese of the same name which is produced in the surrounding countryside and which is marketed throughout the town. On the historical Waaghaus a relief shows visitors how the cheese was weighed in earlier times. The cheese market or a cheese shop are worth a visit.
Day 6: Gouda – Utrecht, approx. 60 km
The conclusion of your tour comes with the beautiful landscape of the route from Gouda to Utrecht. The tour passes atmospheric rivers, expansive polders, lakes and swampy moor regions. In Utrecht you should take the opportunity to take a last stroll through the city.
Day 7: Individual departure or extension of stay
After breakfast your cycling tour in Holland comes to an end and you will begin your return journey home. We would, however, also be more than happy to extend your stay in Utrecht.
