Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam for the day and discover the Dutch countryside on bike. Departing from the city center, take the ferry over the beautiful IJ-lake. Ride your bike over dams and dikes, past picturesue villages and through scenic landscapes. Your guide will tell you about the history of this country and the villages you will be seeing. You will learn about watermanegement while cycling over the embankments that keep the Dutch feet dry. Halfway through the tour, stop for coffee in a lovely little restaurant in Holysloot, a tiny village in the farmlands of Holland. Ask your guide all your questions and enjoy a relaxing break in this peaceful place. The homemade apple pie that's served here is world-famous and the perfect fuel to keep you going. After the refreshment break, continue to Ransdorp. Witness the beauty of this former capital of the Waterland region with its iconic flat church tower and fascinating history. Later, begin the journey back to the city. Before getting back, stop to see Holland's last chalk windmill for another iconic photo opportunity. Learn about the functioning of windmills and the mill industry of Holland in the 17th and 18th centuries. Soon after leaving the windmill behind you will arrive back in Amsterdam.

The route was absolutely stunning. A more beautiful ride I have never experienced. The equipment was good, the size of the group was appropriate, and our guide Pierce gave us most interesting explanations of everything we were seeing. He covered a range of topics including agriculture, water management, history, and more.

Loved this morning bike trip through North Amsterdam! We were gone for about 4 hours with lots of stops to listen and learn as well as a stop for coffee and food! We had a lot of fun and our guide Pierce (not sure how to spell, Irish guy!) was so nice! Thank you!

Lovely trip to the Dutch countryside, which - it turns out - is just a short ride outside of the buzzing Amsterdam city streets. Thijs shared great insights on the area we cycled through and I now have some villages & cafes to return to and more on the list to explore! Thanks for the nice ride!
