Historic cities like Amsterdam and Haarlem, authentic fishing villages along IJsselmeer (Lake IJssel) and beautiful nature areas: this bicycle tour around Amsterdam will take you past fascinating landscapes.
Have a fish in Volendam
When you arrive, you’ll have the day to enjoy all that beautiful Amsterdam has to offer. After a good night’s sleep, you’ll then leave for Edam and cycle through gorgeous water-rich areas and historic towns like Monnickendam and Volendam, where residents sometimes still wear traditional clothing.
Discover Zaanse Schans and Keukenhof
From Edam, you’ll cycle through beautiful natural areas such as “het Twiske” on the way to Zaanse Schans, where you’ll pass the historic windmills. Next is Haarlem, famous for painters like Frans Hals and Jacob van Ruisdael.
During spring, you’ll be able to enjoy the flowers and literally cycle through the flower bulb fields. Take a moment to dismount and visit Keukenhof (open from the middle of March to the middle of May) before moving on to the oldest water sports region in Holland and cycling past the lakes to the Green Heart of Holland.
Along the way, you’ll be staying in places like Mijdrecht and Huizen, and finally return to the place where you started: Amsterdam. The final leg is short, meaning that you’ll have enough time left for, for example, a museum visit or a canal cruise.
