Cycling holidays in the Netherlands
Tulips, cheese, clogs: that's Holland. At least these three things usually come to mind. But Holland, as part of the Netherlands, is much more, namely a true paradise for cyclists. A well-developed network of cycle paths throughout the country offers you the best basis for exciting cycling holidays through Holland. Be it the numerous old Hanseatic cities, hundreds of kilometers of North Sea beach, or a visit to a museum of Dutch art - there is something for everyone. Thanks to a well-developed network of waterways, it makes sense to explore the country by bike & boat at the same time. Working on the principle: you cycle and your hotel room is always just ahead. A perfect combination of motion and comfort. It couldn't be more convenient.Show more Show less
All cycle tours through Holland are characterized by flat paths, a mild climate, and seemingly endless expanses, which makes cycling a pleasure. Cycling tours through Holland are therefore ideal for families, beginners, and culture enthusiasts. Cycling sometimes makes you hungry. In culinary terms, Dutch cuisine offers you a colorful potpourri of different influences. While French fries with various sauces are among the undisputed favorites, Goudse Kaas, matjes and stroopwafels are also an integral part of the menu. It may come as a surprise that Indonesian cuisine has also found its way into the Kingdom's pots and pans. Try it out!
To get to know Holland better, we recommend our bestseller, the cycle tour around the IJsselmeer. Beautiful and quiet cycle paths take you around the former Zuiderzee, to small fishing villages and old trading towns. Discover their special atmosphere and liveliness. If you want to explore the IJsselmeer not only on land but also on water, the riverboat MS Serena is the perfect choice. Discover North Holland, its dykes, dunes, windmills, and flower fields as well as the island of Texel, the sunniest island in Holland. Or is South Holland, known as the "Green Heart", with its unspoiled nature, numerous waterways, and picturesque towns more to your taste? Start in Amsterdam by bike and boat and cycle to vibrant Utrecht, historic Delft, and dynamic Rotterdam.
Our most impressive cycle tours through Holland are probably those that combine cycling with sailing. With the Elizabeth and the Mare fan Fryslân, it is possible to get to know the country in a different way. On the three-masted clipper Elizabeth, your tour starts and ends in Amsterdam and takes you in eight days via the medieval-looking Enkhuizen, to Stavoren, which is over 1000 years old, and on to Lemmer, the town with the only still-functioning steam pumping station in the world. If you're drawn further north, you can embark on a sailing tour across the IJsselmeer to the North Sea islands of Texel, Vlieland, and Terschelling on the Mare fan Fryslân. We recommend our cycling and sailing trips to anyone who likes to feel the wind in their hair and is not afraid to lend a hand. Will you be joining us?Show more Show less
