The Heart of Holland

7 Days Easy-Moderate 193 Km

Amsterdam, Haarlem, Leiden, Delft and Gouda, cities built for cycling, are home to the cultural gems of Holland and brimming with typical Olde Holland character. Cycle through flower filled fields, visit the World famous Keukenhof flower exhibition, explore charming towns and discover the cultural heart of Holland.

With relatively short cycling distances this trip gives plenty time for sight-seeing, allowing you to immerse yourself in Dutch culture; you can discover Haarlem’s hidden “hofjes”, visit at the Anne Frank and Van Gogh museums, shop at Gouda’s cheese market, sip a canal side coffee in Amsterdam and visit countless art galleries and museums.

In spring Holland is covered in a carpet of brightly coloured tulips, daffodils and hyacinths and your route takes you through the heart of this riot of colour. Keukenhof, the world’s largest flower garden, made up of over 7 million bulbs is open from late March to late May and a highlight on day two.

Holland boats the world’s best cycling infrastructure and this cycling holiday is particularly well suited to families as the routes are predominantly traffic free.

Your holiday begins in Amsterdam before heading west to the elegant city of Haarlem and then south through flower filled fields to Keukenhof and on to the university town of Leiden. Delft, famous for its blue and white Delftware, is next on the itinerary before you head on to Gouda. Gouda’s cheese market and hot syrup waffles are a must! Finally your route takes you back to Amsterdam via Utrecht, which boasts the fine Dom Cathedral.
