Cycling trips in The Netherlands

Cycling Holidays in The Netherlands

It is logical that a country such as the Netherlands, known for its flat terrain should also be renowned as a cyclers' paradise. This beautiful land of sea walls, windmills and tulip fields is perfect for easy biking through its low lying landscapes. Of course, a cycling break in any of the spectacular Dutch cities is a great way to explore and experience the city like a local: urban centres, such as vibrant Amsterdam, are ideal for a biking excursion with plenty of dedicated cycle paths and a well-ingrained bike culture.

The great opportunities for cyclists are diverse, from city cycle day tours to a holiday pedalling through the north of the Netherlands along the shores of the Zuiderzee or countryside biking past beaches, windmills and picturesque green fields. For those seeking a spectacular cycling trip at a leisurely pace, the Netherlands is sure to fulfil your dreams of holiday bliss.
