Amsterdam: Windmills, Cheese & Clogs Countryside E-Bike Tour

1. Amsterdam: Windmills, Cheese & Clogs Countryside E-Bike Tour

Leave behind the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam by taking a ferry to the countryside and embarking on an e-bike tour just outside the city. Cycle through Broek in Waterland past canals, bridges, and historical farms with a guide. Then, visit an authentic cheese farm to see how cheese and clogs are made. Start your bike tour by taking the ferry to the north side of Amsterdam. See the Amsterdam Tower and the Eye Film Museum, a unique introduction to Amsterdam's Old Holland area. Afterward, cycle through the natural area of Waterland. This flat landscape offers views of moments that feel lost in time, as you encounter expansive fields and traditional Dutch farmers going about their daily lives. Cycle through the ancient villages of Broek, where time seems to have completely stopped. The land is protected by kilometers of dikes and pumping stations, allowing picturesque villages to blossom, and the region to become a hot spot for outdoor activities on land and on water. Finally, visit a windmill, and a local farm that produces cheese that is exported around the world.

Great tour. Loads of biking but we had e-bikes which was helpful. Wish we could have had time to do the clog tour but Broek Im Waterland and the Cheese factory were wonderful. Great to see the Dutch countryside too. We had a lovely guide who is originally from the UK and we were thankful for her tour. Highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip to the country. Ebike is tricky starting as bike is heavier than normal bike and made for city riding. Not a problem for a 5 foot person. Recommend bringing bike gloves. Our tour guide Emily was awesome.

Really nice to get into the countryside, I wouldn't have ridden around the city! Bikes were great, 2 ferry crossings, and a visit to a quaint town, before sampling so many different cheeses! Would recommend

Bas was a great tour guide , took us on a beautiful route and the cheese tasting factory was a brilliant highlight to the trip. we'll worth the money would recommend

Aldo was the most interesting and wonderful guide. This was a highlight of my trip.
