South Holland with boat and bike, MS Normandie

Water routes & metropolis flair

Discover Holland in a unique way on an 8-day tour by bike and boat. Good bike paths and a ramified network of waterways guarantee an unforgettable holiday. During the day you cycle individually through the beautiful scenery in the country of Rembrandt and Van Gogh and in the late afternoon your boat MS NORMANDIE is awaiting you as your “floating” hotel. Would you prefer to not cycle every day? No problem, stay on board and enjoy the passing landscape.

Province southern Holland

Travel by bike and boat through Holland's green heart. Nearly no province is more diversified than southern Holland. Big cities and untouched nature are located next to each other. The numerous waterways offer countless possibilities to discover the beautiful landscapes and the cultural highlights of province “Zuid-Holland”. Get to know the diversified cities as Den Haag and Scheveningen and of course Rotterdam, also named “Manhatten by the Maas river”, precious inland lakes as the Westensteiner Plassen Brassemeer, not to forget the “Porcelain stronghold” Delft with its “Delft blue”.

Shipping Amsterdam – Zaandam
Haarlem is a charming, typically Dutch town with windmills, canals, drawbridges, small shops, cafés and restaurants. It is worth taking a little walk before you start your first cycle tour to Zaandam. Here you have plenty of time to make a detour to the mu-seum village "Zaanse Schans”, an open-air museum (entrance fee not included) which was built to show the Dutch historical herit-age. You can visit an ancient Dutch village, a cheese manufacture, a shipyard, a Dutch wooden shoe manufacture, a museum of bakery, the Zaanse watch museum and the unique colour mill, De Kat. In the afternoon shipping from Zaandam to Schoonhoven.

Tip:During the tulip-flowering season (depar-tures 10Apr-02 May) we offer an optional day excursion to Keukenhof by coach, transfers and entrance fee.

From Schoonhoven, cycle leisurely to the city of Gouda, which is famous for its cheese. When the weather is fine, you may take a detour for a refreshing bath in the lake Reeuwijkse Plassen.
