Holiday overview

Your journey takes in the rich heritage and traditions of the North of Holland, exploring both charming villages and beautiful beaches.

After joining your boat for the week in Amsterdam, you will cruise to Zaandam before taking in Zaanse Schans open air museum with its traditional wooden houses and windmills and afterwards enjoy a tour of the pretty town, Alkmaar.

From here your tour will head to the coastline to cycle alongside the North Sea following sandy beaches, dunes and flat terrain, before setting sail to the beautiful island of Texel. After taking in more sandy stretches, nature reserves and quaint villages we’ll head back to the mainland for more coastal fun.

For the rest of the tour cyclists can enjoy lovely harbour towns such as Enkhuizen and Voldendam, historical Hoorn and the famous cheese town of Edam, before finishing the tour back in Amsterdam.

Discover beautiful places on two wheels with HF Holidays and Saddle Skedaddle.




Your accommodation for the week is on a specially designed Dutch barge with a friendly mix of different nationalities. During the day, a local leader will be leading the way and riding with the group.
