Netherlands Bike Tour
The Netherlands is more than just red tulips, wooden clogs, and gorgeous canal streets! It’s got one heck of an interesting history, for example. Did you know that half of the Netherlands was once underwater? Or that it’s one of the most densely populated and most urbanized nations on the planet? And yet, its gentle canals and church spires, alongside pretty houses crammed together on the street, all make the Netherlands one of the most charming, highly sought travel destinations in Europe. It’s also a notoriously bike-friendly country.
There’s truly no better way to immerse yourself in the local culture than by taking a Netherlands bike tour. In fact, there are more bicycles than people in the entire country! And nearly every city has incredibly efficient, dedicated cycling routes, making the whole thing safe and easy. Amsterdam is especially a great spot to tour. With a local guide, you’ll navigate the backstreets like a pro, all while learning about the city’s history. You’ll explore hidden courtyards and churches before biking the green oasis of Vondelpark. You can also bike through the ports and locks of Ijmuiden, to the North Pier for a different glimpse of the city, from its more industrial side. You can also explore the countryside around Amsterdam, amongst a landscape of brooks, villages, and windmills. It’s the idyllic Netherlands you’ve always imagined. Stop for lunch at a local café, or at an old village schoolhouse.
In Amsterdam, you can also opt for a completely different kind of Netherlands bike tour by climbing aboard the safest beer-bike in the city. It’s no secret that Amsterdam has quite a fun party scene! You’ll meander the canals while enjoying a local beer, while a BOB (Bewust Onbeschonken Bestuurder), a sober driver, guarantees you won’t end up in any unfortunate accidents. You’ll get a fun history lesson as you travel along, and with 15 other beer drinkers onboard, you’ll be sure to make a few friends in the process.Read More ...
