The Trip



  • Day 1: Arrival Amsterdam

    Arrive in Amsterdam and stroll along the canals and stop for coffees in the squares of the Old Town or hop on your bike and do one of the shorter cycle rides.

    There are four fantastic cycle tours to choose from. Here is a suggested itinerary or you can choose your own from the routes provided.

  • Day 2: Amsterdam - Volendam or Haarlem – Amsterdam 47 miles (76 km) or 29 miles (47 km)

    Head north and cycle through picture-postcard scenery and along the coast of the former Zuiderzee sea to the old fishing villages of Marken and Volendam with their traditional wooden houses.  Continue on to Edam, famous for its round cheeses and many draw-bridges.


    Alternatively, choose a shorter loop and cycle to historical Haarlem and explore its courtyards, known as ‘hofjes’, and the impressive Grote Markt square.

  • Day 3: Amsterdam – Muiden - Amsterdam 39 miles (63 km)

    Head east and visit the small town of Naarden, one of the best preserved fortified towns of Europe, with its stone walls and two elaborate star-shaped moats. Ride to the picturesque village of Muiden at the mouth of the River Vecht and be sure to visit its castle built in 1280 before heading back to Amsterdam.

  • Day 4: Amsterdam - Zaandam – Amsterdam 29 miles (47 km)

    Cycle to the perfectly preserved museum village of Zaanse Schans and visit traditional houses, workshops and see working windmills in motion. Make your way back to Amsterdam where you can enjoy your last night in the canal district.

    We chose to be based in Amsterdam for the duration of the tour. It turned out to be a good decision as the weather wasn't at its best. We still went out, but we could choose which route to take to suit the conditions and our enthusiasm. On the days we that we chose not to go too far, we still use the bikes to get around Amsterdam (like everyone else) which proved to be great fun. The hotel was ideal and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.

    An excellent short break based in Amsterdam. The hotel was lovely, and well placed for easy access to cycle routes leading out of the city. The cycling in Holland is fantastic with easily marked, well maintained designated cycle paths and no hills! Daily distances were fine, with the opportunity for short ferry rides - so easy to take bikes on and off the boats, unlike some countries. Cycling in Amsterdam city centre is an experience, maybe not for the faint hearted but confidence grows with practice. This trip would be great for people new to self guided cycling, or for someone like me returning to cycling from serious injury.
