Bike and Barge tours Netherlands Belgium

Discover the strong bond between the beautiful lowlands countries of Belgium and the Netherlands in the most authentic way possible — with the unique experience of a bike and barge tour! Boat Bike Tours offers eight-day barge and cycling tours starting in Amsterdam and ending in Bruges, visiting the loveliest natural attractions and vibrant cities of the Netherlands and Belgium along the way.

By day you’ll enjoy an active cycling holiday along the predominantly flat bike lanes of the Dutch provinces Holland and Zeeland — and later the Belgian region of West Flanders — at the same time as your boat hotel sails along rivers and canals to meet you at the next port of call each evening. Visit Dutch delights like the 19 windmills of Kinderdijk or an authentic cheese farm, pedal through the confluence of the Rhine, Meuse, and Scheldt rivers, work up an appetite for superb Belgian cuisine and stumble across countless picturesque villages in the countryside.

Of course, a bike and barge tour through the Netherlands and Belgium also features world-class cities like the king of canals, Amsterdam; cathedral city Utrecht; Antwerp, the world’s diamond capital; the gorgeous medieval city of Ghent; and the UNESCO-listed historical splendor of Bruges. City tours and alternate bike tours on some trips ensure variety on your Netherlands to Belgium cycling holiday.


From the Netherlands to Belgium – Amsterdam to Bruges tours

Choosing one of our tours between Amsterdam and Bruges gives you the chance to get to know both countries from two very important Dutch/Flemish perspectives — from a bicycle and from a boat! Whether you follow the daily cycling routes individually or with the guidance of a tour guide is completely up to you and you can also choose to depart from either Amsterdam or Bruges. 

 We offer a wide range of trips on different barges, with something to suit all prospective bike and boat travelers: From the cozy MS Gandalf, for 20 to 22 people, or the larger, convivial MS Fluvius, which fits a maximum of 36 bike and barge guests. The MS Magnifique (32-35 guests) is our top barge and offers a premium experience, with wonderful, spacious cabins and a deck with a Jacuzzi.
