Amsterdam Countryside Bike Tour

Get out of the city and see the gorgeous Dutch countryside on this excellent local bike tour

ABOUT THE Amsterdam Countryside Bike Tour

Don't limit your exploring of Holland to just the Amsterdam city center - windmills, farms and water locks are only a short bike ride away! Your expert guide will navigate you through the lowlands around Amsterdam where you will be blown away by breath-taking landscapes. Have a look at traditional farms, discover how the Dutch have expertly managed flooding, learn about the delicious cheese and marvel at the tallest wooden windmill in the country on this 2.5-hour bike tour.


Your Amsterdam Countryside Bike Tour meets at the Chinese Restaurant Sea Palace and finishes at Amsterdam Centraal station. 


The Holland you won't find in the Amsterdam city center

Your local expert guide starts this bike tour the best way possible - on a boat! You'll head straight out of the city center by crossing the river into the trendy neighborhood of Noord, before finding yourself in the real Dutch countryside. You'll discover Dutch farms, the ingenuity of the giant locks, and even the country's tallest wooden windmill, all in the famous Dutch polders.

Picturesque views and a leisurely bike ride

This is probably our most relaxing tour, as you escape the hustle and bustle of the city streets and find yourself surrounded by the green of the countryside and the blue of the water. You'll learn how the Dutch have mastered not only cheese but water (one third of the country lies below sea level), and have some beautiful pictures for your photo album that most visitors to Amsterdam don't get!

Special offer from our friends at MacBike

On this Amsterdam bike tour, your ticket price includes the rental of high quality MacBikes, but if you want to rent your bike for even longer after the tour, the MacBike guys will give you a special rate! Even the Dutch will be impressed by your riding skills at the end of this trip.
