Netherlands Bike + Barge Tours

4.8/5 (323 ratings)

Our Bike & Boat Tours in Holland showcase what Holland is famous for, bicycles, flowers, and water! We offer lovely bike and boat tours during Tulip Season where if the weather cooperates, you cycle through fields ablaze with Tulips. Boating is as much a part of the Dutch culture as biking and a bike and barge tour any time of the year is a special experience.  We even offer a sailing adventure on Lake IJsselmeer and the Wadden Sea.  Amsterdam to Bruges and reverse is our most popular bike and boat tour and you will discover why. We also have bike and boat adventures that begin in Amsterdam and end in Germany and reverse! 

Does cycling below sea level (at least 1/2 the time) scare you?  If so, check out our full list of bike and boat tours, or our full list of bike trips.
