Holiday Information

A popular cycling holiday in Holland, a country synonymous with cycling. The classic artist's landscape, flat, fertile and open, with long canals, windmills and the historic towns and villages are best explored by boat and bicycle - spend the days exploring by bike and the evening relaxing on a comfortable barge on the canals and lakes.
 
This particular cycling holiday, in the south of Holland, combines the classic Dutch landscape with time near the coast. It is a varied holiday that guarantees a striking introduction to the heart of the Netherlands. This relaxed holiday takes you along rivers one day and roaming the centre of 16th century towns such as Delft, Leiden and Haarlem, the next.  
 
We cycle past the amazing eighteen windmills of Kinderdijk, built around 1750, discover the world's largest seaport, Rotterdam, and cycle along the beach of Scheveningen near The Hague. There’s even some time for exploring museums and for watching the world go by in the outdoor cafés of Amsterdam. These tours are run in conjunction with our partners in Holland and you will join their guests on the tour. Your accommodation for the week is on a specially designed boat, where you will be able to share experiences of the day with other cyclists over dinner. During the day route descriptions are provided and you are free to explore at your own pace if you wish.
