Northern Route

8 Days Easy

This tour begins and ends in Amsterdam but takes you north to the distinctly rural Island of Texel after visits to the architectural jewels of Edam, Hoorn, Enkhuizen and Alkmaar as well as the fascinating outdoor museum, Zaanse Schans. In the 17th century this extensive area was recovered from the sea with the use of hundreds of windmills – many still in working order today. One gets a strong feeling for 17th century Dutch prosperity in Enkhuizen, Hoorn and Volendam.
Later you’ll sail to Texel, an island with thousands of sheep and a magnificent nature preserve that is a bird lover’s paradise. Back on the main land the route takes you over small dikes and quiet country roads through vast polders and along beautiful sand dunes stretching from Schoorl to Bergen. Alkmaar is the capital of cheese making and has its own cheese market and historic Waag (weigh house). In the tulip months of April and May you’ll cycle through colorful fields stretching for miles.
