A unique bike and boat holiday cruising and cycling the charming landscapes and waterways of Northern Holland. Cycle through the original polders of Leeghwater, cross the Marsdiep channel to Texel Island and explore the historic towns of Alkmaar, Hoorn and Enkhuizen. Easy cycling suitable for all.
This is a land of polders, windmills, long sandy beaches, rolling dunes and cosy fishing villages. Yes, you’ll get a taste of the big city in the Dutch capital, but you’ll also discover another side of Holland, visiting the famous cheese-making town of Alkmaar and the old harbour cities of Medemblik, Enkhuizen, Hoorn and Volendam.
The terrain in northern Holland is overwhelmingly flat, and this cycling tour is suitable for anyone. You’ll follow quiet back-roads as well as canal and riverside cycle paths. Most days offer shorter and longer routes so this is good choice for mixed ability groups. Also, as your floating hotel moves with you each day, it’s also possible to skip a day if the mood takes you and relax on board.
