This 11-day tour through the lowlands of the Netherlands and Belgium has all the ingredients a successful bike & barge tour needs — highlights like the iconic windmills at Kinderdijk; north Belgian culture in the beautiful Flemish cities of Antwerp, Ghent, and Bruges; and personal encounters with locals as you bike through Flanders. Above all, you enjoy wonderful cycling off the beaten path, along quiet country roads.
On this 11-day tour, you have time to explore this region’s intriguing cities, visit world-class museums or spend an afternoon shopping. This tour’s relaxed cycling passes through the gorgeous, green and flat Dutch countryside in the Lower Rhine delta and in Flanders — the western region of Belgium.
Visit charming villages, a Dutch cheese farm, 19 windmills at Kinderdijk, and world-famous historic cities. You cycle through and discover the Dutch province of Zeeland … which is essentially one big river delta where the Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt rivers converge … and is famous for its fantastic beaches and amazing engineering. And the Flanders region of Belgium awaits you, which has a reputation for its fabled medieval towns — and superb food and drink.
On the June 29 departure, the route is reversed. So you begin in Amsterdam and end in Bruges with the same attractions.
