Holland & Belgium


Amsterdam to Bruges Cycling 8 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 cosmopolitan city of Amsterdam to the charming village of Bruges, Belgium, you will experience the best of these two countries. From the Unesco World Heritage site of the Kerkenhof gardens 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 Amsterdam

Take time to visit the canal district, museums, and street life of this dynamic city. Our hotel is close to museums and popular sights so you can walk easily.


Day 2: Amsterdam to Gouda
Cycle south through what is known as the Green Heart of Holland, a region filled with farm fields, dykes and windmills. Option to detour to the Keukenhof Gardens, which started as the small kitchen garden of a 15th-century countess and now bills itself as the most beautiful spring garden in the world, designed to showcase the art of Dutch bulb growers. The gardens cover 70 acres (28 hectares) of wooded parkland with nine miles (14 kilometers) of walking paths that wind around ponds, a windmill, greenhouse pavilions holding indoor displays, and more than seven million bulbs planted three layers deep to ensure a blaze of color from the end of March to mid-May. Arriving to Gouda, a village with a myriad of canals, a colourful market on Thursday mornings (and that superb cheese). 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.

Distance: 77 km, elevation gain 100 m.*


Day 3: 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. Dordrecht is one of Holland’s oldest towns and is completely surrounded by water.
Distance: 43 km, elevation gain 170 m.*


Day 4: 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. Willemstad is a small historical town with well preserved fortifications.
Distance: 46 km, elevation gain 76 m.*

 

Day 5: Willemstad to Schuddebeurs 
Zeeland is an archipelago of islands, inlets, polders, so this day will involve some bridge crossings and ferries as you ride towards Belgium. l
Distance: 46 km, elevation gain 76 m.*


Day 6: Schuddebeurs to Middelburg
The ride crosses a 5 km long bridge with a separated bike lane the entire way- the Dutch take care of their cyclists! Arrive to Middleburg, a pleasant and prosperous town with a vibrant center. 
Distance: 44 km, elevation gain 56 m.*

 

Day 7: Middelburg- Brugge
Start the day with a ferry ride to the village of Breskens 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.
Distance: 60 knm, elevation gain 80 m.*
