About this trip

Experience Holland in the best possible way on this gorgeous short adventure aboard one of our comfortable barges. This 7-day bike and barge tour will take you through charmingly scenic landscapes, such as the polder flatlands of North Holland and the sandy dunes along the North Sea coast. You’ll cycle flat terrain on dedicated bike paths along dikes, canals and bridges.

Discover the Zaanse Schans open-air museum with its windmills, traditional cheese and clog makers and authentic Dutch village. Other highlights of this trip are the cheese capital Alkmaar and the historic city of Haarlem, with its cobbled streets, pretty canals, shops and cafés.

The tour begins and ends in Amsterdam, which some call the smallest metropolis in Europe. In the heart of this historic city you’ll find many unique museums, enticing shops and UNESCO World Heritage-listed canals, all of which certainly make a visit to Amsterdam a highlight.

This is my second trip with Tricia and Alt-Esc. It was a great time and met wonderful people as well. I highly recommend working with her if you are looking for a great vacation!

A wonderful location for an end of summer getaway. Our lodging was located perfectly for evening sunsets and daytime relaxation. A lovely breakfast each morning was made by Tricia. The refrigerator had some much needed items. The coffee pot was ready for the early risers. Details were communicated in a timely fashion. Very nice small group getaway. Oregon was a bucket list destination for me.
