Holland & Belgium


Amsterdam (Gouda) to Bruges Cycling 7 days

Although the Dutch didn’t invent the bicycle, almost everyone in the country (including the queen) rides one; the cycling infrastructure in both villages and throughout the countryside is superb. Cycling from the historic city of Gouda to the charming village of Bruges, Belgium, you will experience the best of these two countries. From the Unesco World Heritage site of the Kinderdijk windmills to the chocolate makers in Bruges, this is a unique journey in Europe.

 

 

At Randonnee, we want to make sure that you choose the trip most suitable for you and that any surprises are good ones.

 Day 1: Arrival in Gouda - take time to visit the 15th century town hall and St. Jans Church with its stain-glass windows and the pedestrian streets inside the historical center or take time to see the famous Gouda cheese made. Our Area Manager will meet you at 6 pm to provide the bikes and orientation.
Hotel: BW City Hotel, Gouda


Day 2: Gouda to Dordrecht
Today, we will cycle to the Unesco village of Kinderdijk, where 19 windmills have been standing majestically since 1740. These windmills were used to drain excess water from the low-lying polder to the River Lek. We reach Dordrecht via a short ferry ride. We typically arrive early afternoon - should you wish to visit Rotterdam it is just 30 minutes away by catamaran ferry. Dordrecht is one of Holland’s oldest towns and is completely surrounded by water. We will meet up for an optional walking tour and then enjoy dinner at an acclaimed restaurant where fresh fish never tasted better.
Distance: 43 km, elevation gain n/a


Day 3: Dordrecht to Willemstad
Today, we will cycle through De Biesbosch National Park, one of the last freshwater tide areas in Europe and a rich flora and fauna wetland area. We make our way along quiet roads and bike paths to Zevenbergen where another fabulous lunch awaits and then continue to the charming village of Willemstad, a small historical village with well preserved fortifications. Visit the former mansion of Mauritz, the son of William of Orange or enjoy a refreshing drink at one of the many cafes that line the quaint harbour.  
Ride Distance: 46 km, elevation gain - n/a


Day 4: Willemstad to Schuddebeurs

We depart Willemstad and make our way to the charming village of Oude-Tonge. Zeeland is an archipelago of islands, inlets, and polders. Along the Grevelingenmeer beaches, watch the colourful sails of kites and windsurfers. After lunch at a local restaurant in Bruinisse, we make our way through apple, pear and cherry orchards and horse ranches. Taste wine at a vineyard that specializes in Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc varietals conveniently located a few km from our hotel. Dine tonight in the sublime dining room of the hotel.
Ride Distance: 46 km, elevation gain - n/a

Day 5:

Schuddebeurs to Middelburg

Start out the day by exploring nearby village of Zierikzee, where the city gate last closed for the night in 1866. Explore the Centrum, town hall and former prison, now a museum and then we make our way through Oosterschelde (Eastern Scheldt) National Park, the largest of the 20 National Parks in Netherlands and boasting remarkable bird life. From here, our route follows the North Sea coast where kilometers of sand dunes and splendid beaches stretch as far as the eye can see. Enjoy lunch while watching the aerial acrobatics of kite surfers who flock here for the onshore winds. Late afternoon, visit the utterly charming village of Veere, with a Scottish connection that you will learn as we tour the historic houses center. Arrive to Middleburg, a pleasant and prosperous town with a vibrant center.
Distance: 44 km, elevation gain - n/a

 

Day 6: Middleburg to Brugge

Start the day with a ferry ride to the village of Breskens and to the market town of Sluis (we typically plan our trips to make market day) before cycling into Belgium and its enigmatic villages of Damme and then Bruges, often referred to as the ‘Venice of the North’ and one of the most enchanting cities in Europe. We will discover its treasures on a walking tour with a local guide and then celebrate our trip finish with a celebratory dinner.
Distance: 60 km, elevation gain - n/a
