NORTH HOLLAND SURROUNDED BY WATER

 A short cycle break

    North-Holland is truly a waterside region: there are numerous ponds, creeks and canals. Not only the many idyllic landscapes, but also the indescribable silence of this part of Holland will seduce you. It is almost unbelievable that this quiet place is situated only 15 minutes from Amsterdam. There is of course not only silence, but also a nice mix of traditions and culture in the typical cities and villages, with the beautiful farms, windmills and museums. North-Holland is an attractive region, where you can stay near a metropolis, but where nature and silence is never far away.

 

 

 

Programme

For this holiday, we selected carefully an excellent hotel. It is peacefully located, next to a golf course, in Purmerend. Near the hotel, you can take a bus to Amsterdam. But, we can also go by bike to the capital of Holland. Even in such a big city, there are safe cycle paths.

We will certainly not only cycle to Amsterdam, but also to some of the nicest villages in North-Holland: Hoorn and Edam. Edam, situated next to the former ‘Zuiderzee’ (South Sea), is also called the ‘Cheese city’. Another tour brings us to the ‘Zaanse schans’, with the picturesque wind mills, and to Volendam. There is no better example for a hollandic village than Volendam. An interesting experience is the peninsula Marken! This island has perfectly taken care of its cultural heritage. That’s why you can admire such beautiful wooden houses.

This cycle holiday is really a special experience! Every tour passes beautiful places, alongside reed land, drawbridges and the coasts of the IJsselmeer.

The ring tours:

  1. To Edam and Hoorn (60 km / 37 miles)

  2. Cycling through the Beemster (47 km / 29 miles), the first Dutch polder reclaimed from a lake (1609-1612). It has preserved intact its well-ordered landscape of fields, roads, canals, dykes and settlements, laid out in accordance with classical and Renaissance planning principles.

  3. Cycling to Volendam and Amsterdam (60 km / 37 miles)

  4. Visiting the windmills of ‘Zaanse Schans’ (46 km / 28,5 miles)
