Full description
Discover the best of the countryside on the outskirts of Amsterdam on a leisurely bike tour. Be amazed by the breathtaking landscapes as you pedal past traditional farms and discover how the Dutch have managed flooding with their network of "polders" (land reclaimed from the water). One third of the Netherlands lies below sea level, and over the centuries the Dutch have built dikes and polders to push back the water of the Zuiderzee. 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.

    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!
