Highlights

A bike and boat tour in the Dutch hinterland. Experience a full immersion in an area of forested reserves, lakes and small traditional villages, on a bike tour also popular with Dutch cyclists. The cities of the Hanseatic League welcome you with their traditional architecture and their history, rooted in the Middle Ages and ancient histories of navigation and trade.

 

  • The charm of ancient Hanseatic cities
  • Veluwe, the largest forested area in the Netherlands
  • Amsterdam, the capital of bicycles

What awaits you

A week-long bike and barge tour in Holland: the land of bicycles! Its terrain is completely flat, and the bike paths, almost all of which are paved, are always well marked. Some stages include a choice between a short and a longer ride, and if one day you don't feel like cycling, you have the option of relaxing on board the boat. The only variable to keep an eye on is the weather: a little wind or rain could make your ride more adventurous.

The itinerary and schedule of some days vary according to the comfort level chosen.

Accommodation

There are seven overnight stays on board a riverboat, a real floating hotel ready to follow you during the biking stages and welcome you on board in the evening. The atmosphere is comfortable and is designed down to the smallest detail to ensure that you have an unforgettable stay. During dinner, the chefs and crew treat you to a feast of flavors and aromas. The cabins have private bathrooms and air conditioning.

Ottimo giro per scoprire che l’Olanda non è tutta piatta e può essere anche selvaggia, oltre che ricca di storia.
Per la sistemazione in barca può essere necessario un po’ di spirito di adattamento, ma si mangia bene.
