Tour Details

Experience Holland in the best possible way: a gorgeous spring short break dominated by flowers. This 5 day mini-cruise plows through the most beautiful season of the year and will take you to gorgeous areas such in “the Garden of Amsterdam”. Enjoy some unforgettable days on board of a premium passenger barge with excellent service and an alternating itinerary.

Amsterdam is also called, by some, the smallest metropolis of Europe. There are many unique museums, enticing shopping and, recently added to the UNESCO Cultural World Heritage list, the canals in the heart of Amsterdam certainly make a visit to Amsterdam a highlight. Visit the famous flower market in the center of the capital and discover the „Zaanse Schans“ open air museum including windmills, a traditional cheese maker, a clog maker and an authentic traditional Dutch village. Other highlights of this trip are the historic city of Haarlem, the world famous flower park „Keukenhof“ near Lisse and the largest flower auction in the world in Aalsmeer.

What to Expect

  • Total Length: 85 km
  • Total vertical up: 20 m
  • Terrain: 95% tarmac, 5% unpaved

This cycling tour is largely along the flats plains, and the daily stages vary from 10 to 45 km – mostly on tarmac cycle paths along rivers and canals, or quiet country roads. The boat is moored at night and typically sets sail after breakfast, meeting up with the bikes in the afternoon. Some parts of the itinerary are undertaken by boat, to allow easier access onto cycling paths or simply to enjoy the cruise.  

Easy cycling in mostly flat areas, with only few short climbs and descents. Little effort required, suitable for most people.
