Holland is an absolute haven for cyclists and a trip on two wheels here is the best way to explore this beautiful country. Not only is the terrain famously flat (so no hard-work hills to tackle!), but there is a brilliant network of bike paths that are incredibly well designed and maintained - think tarmac surfaces, good signposting and traffic lights positioned at eye level for cyclists.
There is a tremendous amount of variety on a cycling holiday in Holland as well - historical towns, breathtaking coastline, maritime history and charming canals mean our routes are dense with interest. Our self-guided itineraries are created with thought and care so you can immerse yourself in the local culture, soaking up the sights and sounds of the lesser-known parts of the country, as well as its headline attractions. The routes are gentle, which means roughly around only 20 miles a day of actual cycling, leaving plenty of time to stop for photos, coffee, lunch, more coffee and a nose around the villages you pass through. Two of our trips are ‘bike and barge’ holidays, offering the chance to live aboard a traditional Dutch barge and hop off at notable points for a guided cycle ride. The bike and barge tours prove extremely popular every year!
All our holidays in Holland last 6 nights or more, with overnight stays in the finest quality accommodation included. Luggage transfer, full support service and bike hire are also bundled into the price as standard.Please visit The Carter Company (Holland) website for more information
