Amsterdam round trip to Northern Holland Bike & Barge Tour

Flat countryside up to the horizon, windmills, canals (Grachten) and cycling, this is the Netherlands. And there is so much more. Discover the Netherlands in a unique way on an 8-day journey by bike and boat. Well-built cycle paths as well as wide and extensive waterways guarantee an unforgettable holiday. Throughout the day you are cycling on your own through the beautiful landscapes in Rembrandt’s and Van Gogh’s country and in the late afternoon your floating hotel will be at your disposal. And if you don’t like to cycle every day, you can stay on board and enjoy the passing countryside. The Dutch province of the North Netherlands is situated on a peninsula between the North Sea and the IJsselmeer (IJssel Sea). The Northern Netherlands were founded due to the separation of the north and south of the Netherlands in 1840. Its capital is Haarlem, the biggest city is Amsterdam. Discover the folklore and tradition in the flat Polderland, on the North Sea and in romantic ports. You are travelling through a former lake and marsh region that has been drained by the help of windmills since the 17th century.
