Holland by bike, on the tulip route aboard the Liza Marleen



The Tulip and Cheese Holiday in the Netherlands is dedicated to this magnificent flower in full bloom. Bike and boat trip to discover hectares of tulips and other spring bulbs. You can visit the beautiful Keukenhof Park and discover Zaanse Schans in the north of Amsterdam with its traditional wooden houses, warehouses and windmills. Further north, towards Alkmaar, you will see the most beautiful dunes in the Netherlands. At the end of your stay, you will explore the Beemster en Purmer polders.


Main points of interest:

  • Keukenhof, the most beautiful flower park in the world
  • The polders
  • Aalsmeer, the famous flower market
  • Zaanse Schans

Day 1 - Amsterdam

Boarding at 2 p.m. and baggage drop-off in the cabin. In a relaxed atmosphere, you get to know the guide, the skipper, his crew and of course the other passengers. You first sail to Spaarndam, the village of Hansje Brinker. Hansje is an American novel character who saves the country from a flood by plugging a hole in the dike with his finger.
Pick up the bikes in Spaarndam to Haarlem where the Liza Marleen awaits you. The program for the next day and the week are given to you during dinner.


Day 2 - Haarlem - Keukenhof - 40 km

Visit the Keukenhof Gardens, the most beautiful flower park in the world, colorful with millions and millions of flowering bulbs, in superb traditional and modern gardens. And among these colors, there are some surprising works of art.
Keukenhof is the showcase for horticulture in the Netherlands, especially bulb culture. 500 flower growers present all their flowers and plants among more than 20 flower exhibitions.
You sleep in Leiden, a historic city with many ‘hofjes‘ (houses built around a small courtyard) and buildings from the 15th to the 18th century. It is also the birthplace of the painter Rembrandt.


Day 3 - Leiden - Kudelstaart - 45km

Visit of the Haarlemmermeer, a polder which is 4 meters below sea level. It was the largest lake in the Netherlands! The cycle path takes you through the green heart of Holland, an area characterized by its small cycle paths, black and white cows, mills, ditches and all its canals. Your destination for the day is Kudelstaart, a small village near Lake Westeinderplassen.

Day 4 - Kudelstaart - Wormerveer - 45km

Morning visit to the famous auction market in Aalsmeer. This is where the world market price of flowers and plants is set every day. Then have breakfast while sailing to Amsterdam. At the Nieuwe Meer lock, you cycle along the Amstel river to Amsterdam. A ferry then takes you across the ‘IJ’ river.
Return to nature to visit Zaanse Schans, its traditional wooden houses, warehouses and windmills. It is a bustling place where people live and work. You can visit a cheese factory, a clog factory and a traditional bakery.


Day 5 - Wormerveer - Alkmaar - 45km

Departing from Wormerveer, you will discover the most beautiful dunes in the Netherlands. If the weather is nice, you will have the opportunity to swim in the North Sea during the meal break (note: the water could be cold!). This stage ends in Alkmaar, a historic city where you can admire nearly 400 listed monuments. One of the most famous is the 15th century Grote Kerk (large church). A visit to the Cheese Museum, located in the historic Wagenbouw building is a must.


Day 6 - Alkmaar Purmerend - 45km

Bike ride on ancient sea beds crossing the Beemster and Purmer polders. In the 17th century, two lakes were drained and turned into flat, fertile farmland. The polder mills bear witness to this today. In De Rijp you can visit the birthplace of the mill builder and hydrographer Leeghwater. De Rijp and Graft are two pretty villages typical of the 17th century. They enjoyed great prosperity through herring fishing and whaling. You spend the night in Purmerend.


Day 7 - Purmerend - Amsterdam - 20 to 35 km

Purmerend sits at the edge of the Waterland region where roads and water are almost at the same level. You can visit the villages of Zunderdorp and Ransdorp. Seasoned cyclists can take the long route, which leads to the fishing villages of Edam, Volendam and Marken. These famous villages along the IJsselmeer (the old Zuiderzee, or South Sea) are now touristy, but worth a look.
Back in Amsterdam, it's time to leave your bike. You can walk around town or take a canal excursion by riverboat before or after dinner.

End of stay after breakfast before 10am.
