Biking is part of Holland’s culture. In fact, statistics show that there are more bikes than people in the small country. The best way to explore Holland like the locals is by joining one of our cycling tours. When you see people riding, it’s hard to keep from joining them. Cycle paths dot Dutch roads keeping you safe from other vehicles while the flat terrain and gentle climate make biking more fun and pleasurable. Scattered throughout the cities, bike rental stands are all around, and parking is not a problem because of bike racks conveniently located almost everywhere.
Travelers can cycle through Amsterdam’s canals to catch a glimpse of the beautiful rows of canal houses. Canals are products of Holland’s expertise in water engineering. After viewing the landscape, getting to know Holland’s famous people, such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Anne Frank, is as simple as visiting a museum or gallery. If you take your European vacation during spring time, you will enjoy the burst of colors provided by all the tulips, daffodils and hyacinths in bloom. Their beauty clearly inspired many of the master painters’ works. No one will want to miss taking photographs of the iconic windmills or feeling the sand between your toes in the beach town of Scheveningen.
European vacations like these will forever last in your memories, and the souvenirs like wooden clogs and Dutch Gouda and Edam cheeses help inspire those recollections. Learn more about our European destinations by visiting us online.
