If you're looking for the quintessential Dutch cycling experience, look no further. This self guided cycling trip in Holland combines our past travellers' all time favourite cities; Amsterdam, Haarlem, Leiden, Delft and Gouda, each one of them brimming with typical old world Dutch character. The ride is perfect for a first time cycle trip or for those looking to slow down the pace. Each day's cycling distance is relatively short, allowing you more time to explore out of the saddle and take in the highlights of each city or linger en route over a cheese tasting or coffee. Between the cities, the cycling route meanders through the quiet Dutch countryside, where you will encounter polders, windmills, fields of flowers (in the spring time), lakes and rivers. The itinerary really does provide a week long experience of the classic Dutch cultural and countryside gems.
