The Tour

Beach and City Tour

On this beach and city tour you’ll experience cities such as Utrecht, Amsterdam, The Hague and Gouda. You’ll cycle along North Sea beaches, that are many miles long and spend two nights in seaside resorts.  En route you’ll see cows peacefully grazing on lush meadows, plenty of water and of course windmills. This tour is especially stunning in April. That’s when the plants at the 32 hectare Keukenhof Botanical Gardens are in full bloom - a  true flower paradise. This bike tour is also suitable for less-experienced cyclists and can be booked in two categories.
