The best of two countries

By day you’ll enjoy an active cycling holiday along the predominantly flat bike lanes of the Dutch provinces Holland and Zeeland — and later the Belgian region of West Flanders — at the same time as your boat hotel sails along rivers and canals to meet you at the next port of call each evening. Visit Dutch delights like the 19 windmills of Kinderdijk or an authentic cheese farm, pedal through the confluence of the Rhine, Meuse, and Scheldt rivers, work up an appetite for superb Belgian cuisine and stumble across countless picturesque villages in the countryside.

World-class cities

Of course, a bike and barge tour through the Netherlands and Belgium also features world-class cities like the king of canals, Amsterdam; cathedral city Utrecht; Antwerp, the world’s diamond capital; the gorgeous medieval city of Ghent; and the UNESCO-listed historical splendor of Bruges. City tours and alternate bike tours on some trips ensure variety on your Netherlands to Belgium cycling holiday.
