Hike or Bike through the National Park
A network of bicycle paths criss-cross the Hoge Veluwe National Park, the largest park in the Netherlands, located north of Amsterdam. Over 1,000 bicycles are available for use by visitors -- free of charge! A hike or bike tour through the endless moors, forests, expanses of grassland and sand drifts is beautiful in any season.
Bike and Barge through the Countryside
The Netherlands is the pre-eminent bicycle land: It is flat and has thousands of miles of bike paths, separated from motor traffic. It also has a vast network of waterways, so almost every attractive spot in the country can be reached by bike or barge. You can unpack once and then dine and sleep aboard a barge that follows you on your bike and anchors at the end of each day. Detailed maps are available to help you cycle through the greenest landscapes, the most scenic windmills, the oldest towns and the best outdoor cafes. One-week trips in six areas of the country are available, or you may charter your own barge for eight or more people and design your own itinerary. Cycletours
