Holland

Holland Cycling 7 Days
In a country where everyone (even the queen) rides a bicycle, it is no wonder the cycling paths and signage are the envy of cyclists the world over. Our trip starts just west of Amsterdam in the charming village of Haarlem which borders the National Park Zuid-Kennemarland and the Atlantic. From here, cycle south along the coast, through the famous gardens at Keukenhof to Leiden with its ancient university and numerous museums and art galleries. Continuing south, reach Delft, where Johannes Vermeer lived and worked his entire life and the famous Delft pottery is still made by hand. From Delft continue to Gouda, the cheese capital of Holland with its lovely architecture and thriving markets. Along the way, enjoy cycling along canals and dedicated cycling paths - our route has been designed to provide an easy-going tour to allow time to take in the rich culture and art that the Netherlands has on offer.

Note: although we admire locals able to ride traditional heavy Dutch bikes, our tours feature light-weight performance hybrid and racing bikes, comparable with what we offer elsewhere in Europe. Despite the terrain being flat, we think a light-weight performance bike can make a big difference in how much you enjoy the cycling.

 

 



Stempels, Haarlem
Once a printing foundry, this historic brick hotel exudes an atmosphere from the past but in a modern, stylish and comfortable setting. The restaurant occupies the courtyard and adjoining rooms, with an open kitchen where you can witness the passion in the food prepared here.

 

Boutique Hotel Huys van Leyden, Leiden

This 4-star hotel, built in 1611 overlooks one of the city’s most beautiful canals, as well as the city theatre. There are just 5 guest rooms, pretty breakfast room and a spa & wellness area to enjoy as well as a roof terrace.

 

Hotel de Emauspoort, Delft

In the middle of historic Delft, behind the impressive new Church and directly on a narrow canal, this property combines hotel rooms, a historic house, and the Vermeer room and 2 Gypsy Caravans - it’s quirky and unique! This is the #1 rated hotel in Delft and has a great location and warm welcome.

Best Western Gouda, Gouda

Set in a former redbrick factory building, this hotel overlooks the canal with modern interior and large airy rooms, chic bar and restaurant.


Amrâth Grand Hotel Frans Hals, Haarlem
This 4-star hotel is located in the historic center, a stroll from Teyers Museum and St. Bove Cathedral. This is the top luxury hotel in Haarlem.

 

Boutique Hotel Huys van Leyden, Leiden -Classic

This 4-star hotel, built in 1611 overlooks one of the city’s most beautiful canals, as well as the city theatre. There are just 5 guest rooms, pretty breakfast room and a spa & wellness area to enjoy as well as a roof terrace.

 

Hotel Pincoffs, Rotterdam
Consistently rated the #1 hotel in Rotterdam, this 4-star luxurious hotel was formerly the Customs House and is located at the trendy left bank with views of the Erasmus Bridge, and near Luxor Theatre, National Photo museum and Museum Quarter as well as the top restaurants in the city. Straight Talk: Rotterdam is a fabulous city, but has some traffic of course, alleviated by the well-planned bike lanes.

Stadshotel, Woerden

This boutique 4-star hotel combines a historic building (once the armory building) with thoughtful renovation into a lovely hotel and gathering place - the restaurant and bar are lively spots and add to the conviviality.
