Netherlands - The Green Heart of Holland by Bike and Barge Tour (2019)

NETHERLANDS: The Green Heart of Holland by Bike and Barge Tour 8 days and 7 nights cabin accommodation with full board including 7 breakfasts, 6 packed lunches and 7 three course dinners. Welcome drink. Daily route briefing by the crew. Tour is semi-guided so that guests cycle independently and tour leader also cycles with the tour. One set of maps and notes per room. Some short walking tours also. GREEN HEART IS THE CENTER OF THE NETHERLANDS. Total cycling distance 215-304 km. During this eight day, seven night tour on board the charming barge Flora you can cycle individually and at your own pace as you discover the ‘Green Heart” of Holland, a region steeped in history, natural attractions, world famous cities and beautiful scenery. Along the way you will visit historical cities such as Amsterdam, Haarlem, Rotterdam, Leiden and Gouda. You will discover many culturally historic attractions and, more importantly, you will be able to immerse yourself in the very heart of this fascinating and very Dutch part of Holland. Also if you are an art lover, you will enjoy the visits on Leiden, Haarlem and Delft where painters such as Rembrandt, Frans Hals and Vermeer lived and worked. But far from just being about big cities and Dutch history, this tour is also about picturesque villages and beautiful scenery of the ‘green lung’ districts of central and South Holland. One thing is certain: by the end of the tour you will not only come away with a new found appreciation for bike and barge cruising, but for everything that is Dutch. A bonus during this tour is the fact that the Flora docks in and around the city center of the various cities and villages visited at the end of each day’s cycling, giving you the opportunity to visit and explore at your leisure at night.
