Amsterdam – Bruges Tour

This magnificent eight-day cycling holiday takes you along unique places in the Netherlands and ends in neighboring Belgium. The route offers a unique package of impressive historic towns, picturesque villages and an unforgettable natural and cultural landscape. The route is varied and offers something for everyone. You will learn about unique historical cities such as Amsterdam, Gouda, Dordrecht and Middelburg, where the charm of a bygone era is felt in every corner. Nature knows the route in abundance. You will also cycle through the Green Heart. This green area is uniquely situated in the largest metropolitan area of the Netherlands and guarantees an endless feeling of peace and freedom. Nature, characterized by rivers, streams, lakes and islands in the Biesbosch National Park is very different from the Green Heart, but is just as impressive. The water and rich dune landscape of Zeeland is impressive. You will cycle along the famous mill complex called the Kinderdijk. These nineteen typical Dutch windmills annually attract millions of tourists. The characteristics of the Zeeland towns and villages are just as beautiful. The tour ends in the Belgian town of Bruges, a beautiful city that is also known as “The Pearl of Flanders”.
You can start in Amsterdam or in Bruges. Both tours have the same prices and features.

Day 1: Arrival in Amsterdam

Your cycling holiday begins in Amsterdam, according to many the jewel of Europe. With so much entertainment and attractions, a more vibrant start of your cycling is almost inconceivable. If you arrive on time in Amsterdam, make a stroll through the quaint town center. Just watch the characteristic mansions and magnificent seventeenth-century canals (UNESCO status). Do you have time and energy? Then walk on through the renowned "red light” district that attracts millions of tourists annually, or admire the Rembrandt Square.

Day 2: Amsterdam - Gouda

Make a early evening stroll along the beautiful canals and impressive old buildings.

Day 3: Gouda - Dordrecht

52 km

Today you can admire one of “Hollands” most popular tourist attractions: mill complex Kinderdijk. These nineteen typical Dutch windmills built in the 16th century adorn into an equally typical Dutch landscape and are a true Dutch icon. Did you always wanted to know how to become a miller? You can learn it here. Also discover how an authentic windmill works, visit the mill shop and look at how a mill is built. You spend the night in Dordrecht, one of the oldest Dutch cities. Place a vist to the port district with its many historic buildings!

Day 5: Willemstad - Schuddebeurs

50 km

Today you will enjoy a mosaic landscape of polders, rolling dunes and golden sand plates. Via the bridge over the Grevelingenmeer, the largest salt water lake in Western Europe, you reach the island of Schouwen-Duiveland. Schouwen-Duiveland is also called the jewel of Zeeland.

Day 6: Schuddebeurs – Flushing

53 km

Your day starts with an interesting piece of architecture: the Zeeland Bridge. This bridge was once the longest bridge in Europe and is adorned with no less than fifty arches.

You continue your route through the charming town of Veere to Middelburg. Middelburg, the capital of Zeeland, is one of the oldest Dutch cities.
