Green Heart of Holland

Hotel & Bike 4 nights

VISITING: Holland

Why we love this tour

"Beautiful scenery as you pedal through a wonderful rural landscape. This is an easy to moderate tour, however you can add an extra night in Woerden to split the longer day 3 into two shorter more leisurely days, giving you more time to explore Amsterdam and Gouda."

Ride around the heart of Holland and discover the charming cities, iconic canals and beautiful landscapes of this cycling haven. Your tour will start with a ride to Amsterdam, cycling along river-bank paths lined with grand houses built in the 17/18th centuries. Arriving in Amsterdam, you’ll have time to explore the art galleries, museums and historic canals.

You’ll pedal out of the Dutch capital, along the river Vecht which is lined by grand stately homes and well-kept gardens. From here you'll ride into a  beautifully green and rural landscape with charming little towns surrounded by meadows, rivers and woodland. Staying in cities including Gouda and Utrecht, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy typical Dutch markets, museums and churches.
