This wonderful bike and boat tour showcases authentic Holland and takes you through the central and Hanseatic region of the Netherlands. It cuts through the Rhine valley and its very beautiful tributary the IJssel, and across the "border lakes." The east central mainland province, Gelderland is the least populated and the largest of the Dutch regions.
Gelderland has several large national parks. The IJssel forks from the Rhine near Arnhem and the 125 km winding river valley offers the cyclist a fantastic area in which to cycle without the inconvenience of any difficult climbs.
This Dutch bike tour visits various old Hanseatic towns that flourished in the 12th and 13th centuries, picturesque fishing harbors, and the new Flevoland, created as a result of land reclamation.
During the whole tour you travel through wood and moorland sections of the Achterhoek, Veluwe, and Gooi nature reserves, very suitable for bike tours and a favorite of Dutch cyclists!
