Our authentic tours in the Netherlands

Do you prefer a leisurely cyclingroute through the Rhine Valley and along its very beautiful tributary the IJssel River? During the Hanseatic tour you’ll visit fascinating cities and villages such as Amsterdam, Arnhem, Deventer and Kampen. The natural beauty is sure to impress.

Or will you rather enjoy the beauty of the Green Heart of Holland – a region steeped in history, idyllic nature and world-famous cities. On this quintessentially Dutch tour, you’ll cycle through the green district of South Holland, passing charming villages on the way to several  historical cities.

And during the tour between Amsterdam and Maastricht you’ll discover magical green landscapes formed by the rivers Vecht, Lower Rhine, Waal, Linge and Meuse. You visit historical towns, picturesque villages and magnificent castles, all the way into the welcoming province of Limburg.

Other authentic nature and heritage sites

After you’ve explored the wonders of the Netherlands, why not adventure further afield? Our trusted partners offer magnificent tours of the Mediterranean coast of Greece and Croatia by boat and bike. Go island-hopping as you sail the seas, cycle through awe-inspiring landscapes, visit heritage sites, and explore ancient towns guided by local experts. This will be an unforgettable experience.

Croatia

Welcome aboard our floating hotels

The tours along the Dutch waterways require a special type of ship: spacious enough to comfortably accommodate its guests, but narrow enough to fit through the locks and slim canals en route. Of course the cycling tours visiting the Mediterranean coasts, will be done aboard a different ship type. On each tour you will see what ship will be taking you to all the beautiful sites.
