Holland-Cycling.com is an internet guide to cycling in Holland. We do not organise cycling holidays ourselves. To help you on your way, we made a selection of the most popular cycling holidays offered by Dutch tour operators. The information on this page is provided by the tour operator.

For real waterscapes as well as painted waterscapes, journey to South-Holland province! If you are drawn to water; if being by the water has a calming effect on you; what could be more relaxing than a leisurely bike ride down the coast or along a river, perhaps followed by a lakeside break?

For painted waterscapes, you are bound to strike lucky in fine art museums such as Mauritshuis, Panorama Mesdag, Prinsenhof Delft, Museum De Lakenhal, or in one of Gouda’s many art galleries.

This tour strikes a great balance between fresh air in open countryside and a culture quest in towns full of Old Dutch character such as Leiden and Delft. In Gouda, you can attend the re-enacted cheese market of-old with its quaint rituals and costumes. In beautiful Delft, find out all about the town’s blue and white pottery. In the old university town of Leiden, rent a boat and join the students cruising the picturesque canals.

Hear the wind rustle through the reed beds on the banks of small lakes; and listen out for bird song in the Green Heart region.

Below sea level, traverse great, flat polders, criss-crossed with grids of irrigation ditches glistening in the sunshine. Along the coast, the smell of the sea in the air, test your fitness: Race up the dune tops and then enjoy the 360° view.

In short, book this tour for three full and fabulous days of cycling and sight-seeing; and plunge into century-upon-century of dynamic Dutch culture.
