Amsterdam to Bruges 7 Nights

The way that cycling is included in the traffic systems, the general small scale of everything and the flat terrain all contribute greatly in providing the perfect conditions for a stress-free tour! On this tour you will pedal your way through different types of landscapes, each with its own cultural and historical characteristics.

From April to the first week of May, this tour will leave from Haarlem (instead of Abcoude) in order to admire and ride through the innumerable tulips fields between Haarlem and Leiden!
