This cycling and barge holiday combines the countries of Holland and Belgium in a very surprising and attractive way. In eight days you will cycle from Amsterdam to Brussels. (Alternate weeks the direction is reversed and you cycle from Brussels to Amsterdam)
On your arrival day you will stay in Amsterdam and therefore have time to visit the city. The first days you cycle pass the beautifully restored stately homes along the river Vecht, the impressive Castle De Haar and cross the Betuwe, also known as Hollands fruit garden. You arrive in the old town of Hertogenbosch where the St. Jans cathedral is certainly worth a visit.
Leaving the fortified town of Willemstad you cross the Belgian border to arrive in the Flemish port town of Antwerp which is another highlight. Belgium is famous for its tasty beer, so a visit to one of the pubs is included.
Your holiday ends with a visit to Brussels, the capital of Belgium. Standing at the Market Square in Brussels the Dam Square in Amsterdam seems miles away!
