Delft and Gouda 

All three cycling holiday options take you past the historic cities of Delft and Gouda. Cycle through the meadows and along the banks of the Meuse, the Hollandsche IJssel and the Schie to these beautiful cities. Stop for lunch at one of Delft's canals and climb the Nieuwe Kerk for a fantastic view of the city. 

Visit Gouda’s cozy city center. Enjoy the view while having lunch on the Markt. Take a moment to admire the old town hall and walk along the historic canals. The ride back again takes you through scenic nature. 

The windmills of Kinderdijk 

As part of the 5 and 6 day cycling holiday you also cycle to Kinderdijk and Dordrecht. Take the water bus heading for Dordrecht. Your bike goes aboard with you and after a trip through Rotterdam, you’ll be dropped off in Krimpen aan den IJssel to continue cycling through the meadows to the picturesque windmills of Kinderdijk. Visit Dordrecht, a real water city, right afterwards. You can then cycle or sail back by water taxi or water-bus. 

Hoek van Holland beach 

If you’ve opted for the 6-day cycling holiday, you still have a wonderful bike ride ahead of you. During the last round trip, you cycle west to Hoek van Holland where you can take in the fresh air during a beach walk. Finally, take the Fast Ferry to the Maasvlakte to see impressive ocean-going ships heading for the port of Rotterdam.
