amsterdam countryside bike tour

Countryside bike tour

On our Countryside Bike tour, we will ride along the Amstel River heading southwards through Amsterdam, towards the polder landscape with its ditches and dikes that run in straight lines through the landscape.

We’ll visit an eccentric and often entertaining Dutch farmer at his clog factory and cheese farm. Here he will demonstrate the ancient traditional art of clog making and how he creates his delicious Gouda cheese. Whilst we are there, we’ll be able to look around the small gift shop and taste some free samples of their famous authentic Dutch cheese.

On this tour, we’ll also show you an authentic windmill, one of the few remaining in this part of the Netherlands. During our cycle ride, we will also pass a seriously cool community of houseboats and see how it has transformed from what was an alternative hippie community to one that’s much loved by the wealthier classes.

The height of the handlebars and the seat are adjustable to your height so that you can sit comfortably. The bikes are also extra safe thanks to the reflectors, bike lights and of course a good, loud bell on the handlebar.

An original, informative and enjoyable tour…

Whether it’s your first or your fifth time in Amsterdam, within our wide array of bike tours, you’ll definitely find something right for you. With our tours you’ll see not only the historic city center, but also unique places in other parts of the city. You’ll also have the choice of bike tours focused on a single theme, such as Amsterdam’s old windmills or the city’s Jewish history.

The advantages of a bike tour

Why do all those narrow canal houses in Amsterdam have a hoisting beam on top? How deep are the canals? And how was life in the Red Light District in the 17th century? Just a few questions that might come to mind when you’re biking through Amsterdam. The big advantage of a guided cycling tour is that you can get answers to all these questions. A bicycle tour is informative and entertaining, and since you’re with a guide, you’ll be biking extra safely through the city. This means that during the tour you’ll have all the time you need to look around and enjoy the sights.
