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

On our Countryside Bike tour, we will ride along the Amstel River heading southwards through Amsterdam, towards the polder landscape with its ditches and dikes that run in straight lines through the landscape.

Our tour takes you under the Rijksmuseum, through Amsterdam's famous Vondelpark, along the Amstel River beyond the edge of town and through the polder landscape with its rectilinear ditches and dikes. We cycle from the city centre into the countryside.

We’ll show you one of the few remaining authentic windmills and visit an eccentric Dutch farmer at his cheese farm/clog factory. At the farm, they will demonstrate the traditional art of making wooden shoes and famous Gouda cheese.

Afterwards, you’ll be able to have a look around in their little gift shop and taste some free samples of authentic Dutch cheese. On the way there, we’ll also pass by a cool community of houseboats and see how it has transformed from a hippie community to one that’s loved by the upper class. And we will go through the famous lowlands under sea level.
