Full description
Discover the best of the countryside on the outskirts of Amsterdam on a leisurely 2.5.hour bike tour. Depart from Central Station, where you will be fitted with your bike, and pedal through the lowlands that surround the city.

Be amazed by the breathtaking landscapes as you pedal past traditional farms and discover how the Dutch have managed flooding with their network of polders (land reclaimed from the water). One third of the Netherlands lies below sea level, and over the centuries the Dutch have built dikes and polders to push back the water of the Zuiderzee.

Explore some of the traditional industries of rural Holland, such as cheese making, and marvel at the tallest wooden windmill in the country.
