  • Day 1

    Arrival in Utrecht

    Settle into your hotel

  • Day 2

    Utrecht - Gouda 66 km

    Today you’ll see stately homes, castles, woods and parks before reaching "cheese town” Gouda. Try to plan your trip so that you will be able to see the traditional Thursday morning cheese market at the start of Day 3. The town is also known for its syrup waffles (try one hot!) and candles

  • Day 3

    Gouda - Papendrecht 52 km

    From Gouda you'll cycle via the "Green heart of Holland" to the village of Kinderdijk, explore the site where 19 windmills have been standing majestically in rows since 1740. They were used to drain excess water out of the low-lying polder up into the River Lek. One of the mills is open to the public. Your destination, Papendrecht, is just a ferry crossing away from of one of Holland’s oldest towns

  • Day 4

    Dordrecht. Dordrecht is completely surrounded by rivers. Beautiful bridges take you across the water into the heart of town. Around the harbour you will see many monumental buildings

  • Day 5

    Papendrecht - Gorinchem 57 km

    Today you cycle through a part of Biesbosch National Park, one of the few remaining freshwater tidal areas in Europe. The countless islands of marshy willow woods, reed-lands and grasslands are surrounded by creeks and rivers. The place is a resting, foraging and breeding site for water birds. Nature lovers should visit Biesbosch Centre Dordrecht for information on this fascinating area. Before you arrive in Gorinchem you can, if you wish, take a boat trip to visit the interesting Loevesteijn castle. The town of Woudrichem is definitely worth a visit.

  • Day 6

    Gorinchem - Utrecht 54 km

    Gorinchems walled town centre has a long, turbulent history and over two hundred monuments to remember it by. It used to be big in fishery, markets and trade, but was often plagued by floods and conquerors (the town was the gateway to Holland). In the heart of the city of Utrecht lies the peaceful Oude Gracht (= Old Canal). Its characteristic wharves are unique to Utrecht. Nowadays they are the pleasant setting for waterside cafes and restaurants. Explore the Museum Quarter and do some (window) shopping on one of the quieter shopping streets.
