Bike and Barge: Green Heart of Holland

8 Days Easy-Moderate

During this eight day, seven night tour on board the charming barge MS Jelmar you can cycle individually and at your own pace as you discover the ‘Green Heart’ of Holland, a region steeped in history, natural attractions, world famous cities and beautiful scenery. Along the way you will visit historical cities such as Amsterdam, Haarlem, Rotterdam, Leiden and Gouda. You will discover many culturally historic attractions and, more importantly, you will be able to immerse yourself in the very heart of this fascinating and very Dutch part of Holland.
Also, if you are an art lover, you will enjoy the visits in Leiden, Haarlem and Delft where painters such as Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Vermeer lived and worked. But far from just being about big cities and Dutch history, this tour is also about the picturesque villages and beautiful scenery of the ‘green lung’ districts of central and South Holland. One thing is certain: by the end of the tour you will not only come away with a new-found appreciation for bike and barge cruising, but for everything that is Dutch.

With a maximum capacity of just 20 passengers, the MS Jelmar offers guests an intimate and relaxed atmosphere during the Green Heart of Holland tour. Allow yourself to be pampered with great service and delicious meals on your home away from home for the week. A bonus during this tour is the fact that the MS Jelmar docks in and around the city centre of the various cities and villages visited at the end of each day’s cycling, giving you the opportunity to visit and explore at your leisure at night.
