Tulip tours by boat & bike

6
Spring blooms by cycle cruise

Gorgeous tulips blooming under spring skies, relaxed bike tours through flat, verdant landscapes and water, water, everywhere — our highly-popular tulip tours by boat & bike bring together three of the most quintessentially Dutch vistas you could imagine.

Of course, our tulip tours visit the world-famous Keukenhof flower park near Lisse, a botanical mecca boasting an overwhelming array of blooms, itself surrounded by fields upon fields of vibrant bulbs in full color. But on our spring tulip tours, Keukenhof is just the start….

Tulip tours and much, much more: the best of Holland

Well, to be entirely correct, Amsterdam is the start (and end) of all of our tulip tours by boat & bike. And that’s perfect because a trip to the ‘Blomenmarkt,’ the flower market floating in its UNESCO-listed city center canal ring, is just the thing to get you excited for the blossoms ahead. While you’re there, visit the many excellent museums at the Museumplein square, bike through the Vondelpark or simply admire the Golden Era townhouses.

The regions of North and South Holland also hold plenty more in store; visit the Zaanse Schans open-air museum for insights into the Netherlands’s past and its working windmills, visit a cheese farm, or get to know the fascinating history of Haarlem, Leiden and Gouda.

You’ll see flowers wherever you go, and none more so than in the impressive Aalsmeer flower auction house, where immense volumes of blooms in all shapes and shades are traded and sold for markets all across the world.

A little bit fancy — premium tulip tours by boat & bike

Two of our tulip tours by boat & bike are Premium tours, giving you an even higher level of comfort while relaxing on board after your day our exploring the spring blossoms. For example, the 5-day Tulip Tour Premium trips are attentively hosted on our handsomely-refurbished Magnifique barges, which have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, tastefully-furnished lounges and even a whirlpool/Jacuzzi on the deck.
