Cycling The Netherlands

Self-Guided Trip



days from


This tour of The Netherlands shows you the country away from the tourist brochures. While you may come across the odd windmill and tulip, this self-guided cycling holiday through the heart of The Netherlands excites even a Dutchman like Adventure Coordinators' Tom Gehrels. Visit forgotten fishing villages, historic Hanseatic towns, indulge in the wide-open spaces and lakes of Friesland, the farmer's fields of Holland and the National Heritage Landscapes of Gelderland.
