Super Tulip Tour

Cycling through fields of spring flowers

8 Days Easy 40 Km

In April and May we offer special tulip tours. The program of this Bike & Barge Super Tulip Tour is totally dedicated to this beautiful flower. You will cycle through hectares of spring flowers and tulips, learn all about growing tulips and of course you visit the “Keukenhof

The tulip originated in Turkey. The tulip bulb reached The Netherlands at the end of the 16th century. The plant became very popular (the “ Tulip Mania”): In 1634 there was one single bulb that was so expensive, a whole canal side house in Amsterdam did cost the equivalent. Of course you also will visit the world-famous, 32-hectares’ park The Keukenhof, where you can admire the wonderfully colorful fields with flowering bulbs in peace and quiet.
On Tuesday morning you will have to wake up early to visit the impressive flower auction at Aalsmeer. Aalsmeer controls a market share of 44% for the turnover of bulbs and tulip flowers. At midday you will cycle from Amsterdam to the Zaanse Schans. The Zaanse Schans is a unique hamlet where people live and work, with original houses and windmills from the river Zaan area.
Around Alkmaar you will find the most beautiful dunes in the country. From Alkmaar to Purmerend the route leads you through the 17th century polders. When time permits you will visit a water mill. The last part of the week the green “ Waterland” surrounds you, while you’re cycling through the Beemster Polder.
