Your North Holland bike trip will be marked primarily by the presence of water: the canals, ponds, streams are countless!

  • Hoorn, Edam, Volendam
  • Amsterdam
  • the Polders
  • Windmills
  • Gastronomy

Day 1 : Towards Edam and Hoorn - 57 km

Arrival in Purmerend, check in at the hotel and pick up the bicycles. Departure for a first bike ride to Edam and Hoorn.
Edam, a small town known for its cheese, is also a port and was an important shipyard. Its town center is a reflection of its heritage: its cobbled streets, its bourgeois houses and of course its canals. Then, drive to Hoorn, a typically Dutch port town. During the Golden Age, Hoorn was the point of departure for ships to India and the Americas. You will cross the "Zeevang" polder before arriving at your hotel.


Day 2 : through the Beemster - 47 km

Today's route takes you through a rustic and picturesque region, the Beemster, the first polder in the Netherlands. Initially, this landscape was a lake drained by the many windmills. The region is so special and authentic that it is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can also taste Beemster cheese. Discover the village of "De Rijp", a former fishing village and admire the view of the mills of Lake Schemer.


Day 3 : to Volendam and Amsterdam - 59 km

You take the direction of Volendam by bike, typically Dutch, famous for its cheese market, costumes and music. From there, we suggest you take the ferry boat (not included), to get to Merken Island, now connected by a dike. Admire the houses and traditional costumes. Then direction Amsterdam, the European capital of cycling.


Day 4 : towards the "Zaanse Schans" - 46 km

Today you set off to explore Zaanse Schans and its many wooden mills planted along the Zaan River. You can admire the traditional houses from the 17th and 18th centuries. usually painted green and white like windmills. Don't miss the clog maker and the cheese maker! You will then cross the "Wijdewormer" polder, which was once a lake, just like the Beemster.
