The first half of day's bicycle ride brings you to the open air museum, Zaanse Schans (entry included). Here you will find beautiful windmills, an authentic traditional Dutch village, a cheese factory and a clog maker. Afterwards, you will return by bicycle to the ship. In the afternoon, you can choose between a boat trip of approximately 2.5 hours or a bicycle trip to Haarlem (approx. 14 miles). 


Day 3 : Haarlem - Keukenhof - Kudelstaart*, 25 mi. (40 km)
Your ride to Keukenhof will begin after breakfast. (You could also take a bus if you prefer, fare not included).  Keukenhof is arguably the most famous flower park in the world, where you can admire hundreds of thousands of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and many other flowers in full bloom. After your visit, you will continue on bike to Kudelstaart, where the ship will be waiting for you on the shores of the Westeinder Lakes. Entrance fee for the Keukenhof is approximately €25 per person. If you have taken a bus to the Keukenhof, then a taxi from Keukenhof to the boat at Kudelstaart will be approximately €55 (max. 7 persons).

* Depending on availability of berths the ship could possibly be moored in the next village Oude Wetering or Aalsmeerderbrug.


Day 4 : Oude Wetering - Amsterdam, 18 mi. (28 km)
After a quick breakfast, you will cycle to the flower auction in Aalsmeer (not open in the weekends and holidays*). Early each morning, millions of flowers are auctioned off here and instantly sent out to all corners of the world. By 10 AM you will return aboard in Aalsmeer where an elaborate brunch will be awaiting you. Afterwards, you can choose to make your way on board to Amsterdam or you can finish the last stage of the journey on bicycle. During the afternoon and evening, you will have time to visit the inner city flower markets. Individually, you may choose to visit a museum, do some shopping or even take a boat trip through the canals. 

*A free canal tour is then offered.
