Details

Amsterdam, Haarlem, Leiden, Delft and Gouda are among our cyclists’ all-time favorite cities – each unique and all brimming with that typical Olde Holland character. We have decided to combine them into this one route for the ultimate cultural bike holiday. Cycling distances are relatively short allowing more time for sightseeing and museums. Although you will stay within the Randstad conurbation you will discover how rural and quiet the countryside can be, where polders, windmills, bulb flower fields (in spring!), lakes and rivers take the spotlight. In short, this route stands for seven days of enjoying cultural gems and idyllic countryside.

NEW TOUR 2017 

Your cycling tour in Holland:

Day 1: Arrival in Amsterdam

Your bicycle holiday starts in Amsterdam, famous for its gorgeous 400-year-old canal district; museums; street artists and performers on Dam, Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein; this city is brimming with things to see and do and you couldn’t wish for a more dynamic beginning to your holiday. Try to arrive early so you have time to admire the elegant tree-lined canals and tall narrow townhouses and warehouses dating from the 17th century (World Heritage Site).

Day 2: Amsterdam - Haarlem | 29 km

Say "tot ziens!” to amazing Amsterdam and mount your bike to journey through Kennemerland where a great variety of lovely countryside awaits: vast polders, wild gardens, country estates, woods and beautiful peatland.
You will stay the night in the elegant city of Haarlem. The attractive city center offers a wealth of possibilities for shopping, delving into art and culture, or relaxing in cafes and restaurants.

Day 3: Haarlem - Leiden | 38 km

Get set for a colorful bike trip through the Dune and Bulb Region. Try to time this holiday before mid-May to capture the bulb flower fields in their full splendor! Tulips, crocuses, daffodils and hyacinths are grown here commercially and temporarily transform the landscape into one of the country’s best-loved tourist attractions. Leiden is the oldest university town in Holland. It has a very busy cultural events calendar and a friendly city center with canals, monuments windmills and museums.

Day 4: Leiden - Delft | 24 km

After taking your leave of lively Leiden, peace and quiet will reign once more in today’s typically Dutch scenery. Note all the orderly rectangles in this man-made polder Landscape. Let shining lakes and green pastures, old windmills and farmhouses pass you by whilst pedaling on to the famous city of Delft. The melancholy charm of historical Delft is breathtaking. Most will associate Delft with its blue and white hand-painted pottery: Delftware.

Day 5: Delft - Gouda | 34 km

This stretch of the tour takes you through the Green Heart: a stronghold against urban sprawl in Randstad conurbation. Balancing atop polder dikes, delight in characteristic villages, far horizons and pleasingly strict rectangles cut by ditches in fields of vibrant green. As you wander around the city of Gouda at the end of the day, don’t miss the gothic town hall (1450); the Weighing House (1667); the romantic inner city canals and the stained glass windows in St. John’s Church. Gouda is also famous for making syrup waffles (try one hot!) and candles.

Day 6: Gouda – Amsterdam | 80 km

After a hearty breakfast at your hotel, get back on your bike and set off on the longest leg of this bike tour! You will be making a tour via the rual Green Heart. On the way, the scenery is punctuated by rivers, polders and lakes. In this Green Haert of Holland only small villages, lakes and meadows.
Thus fortified, continue on your way back to Amsterdam pursuing beautiful River Amstel.
Would the 80 km be to long for you then you can split this day by booking an extra overnight in Woerden. (30 km and 48 km)
