Explore flat “polder” landscapes – a polder is a low lying tract of land enclosed by embankments – the North Sea coast, towering sand dunes, long sandy beaches, historic windmills, the island of Texel and the many picturesque harbor towns along the Coast of IJsselmeer Lake. It is without doubt a tour not to be missed! Nowhere else in the world will you find an area as fascinating as the Dutch provinces of north Holland and Friesland, two areas rich in tradition. Over the course of your week, you will be able to discover typical Dutch culture and cycle through a flat “polder land”, extensively reclaimed over the centuries from the North Sea and the former Southern Sea (now IJsselmeer). During the second part of your tour you will cross the large lake IJsselmeer to Stavoren in the province of Friesland. Other cycling highlights during your weeklong tour include the open air museum “Zaanse Schans”, the historic city center of Alkmaar and the old harbour cities of Medemblik, Enkhuizen, Hoorn and Volendam, the islands of Texel and Marken, and of course Amsterdam with its beautiful canals.
