Holland Highlights

If you are ready for some cycle touring (cycling from one accommodation to the next), join us on our Randstad Circle route, taking you to many Holland Highlights. The Randstad is Holland’s central urban zone with an amazing route variety.  With the Green Heart at its centre, urban and rural are never far away. Our 337 kms (208 miles) circular route starts and ends in Amsterdam. If you wish to stay in Amsterdam only, you can still cycle route sections by taking bikes on trains for the day.  The route also links with all ferry ports to/from the United Kingdom, so you can also start/end the circle there.

A main feature of the route is the tarmac cycling highway through the sand dune reserves of the Dutch coast, providing continuous access to Holland’s sandy beaches. An intriguing waterway is the sleepy Vecht River, where the merchants of the Dutch Golden Age built their country estates. Haarlem, Utrecht, Gouda and Delft all have lovely medieval town/city centres, with scenic canals and great shopping opportunities. The city of The Hague features world-class museums.  Of course, you’ll also see the tulip fields and the Unesco Kinderdijk windmills.



check “We have recently returned from a family cycling holiday in the Netherlands, following the circular route in your guidebook, and my wife and I wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for such an excellent book. We caught the overnight ferry from Newcastle to IJmuiden, and took two weeks tootling around the route, with a few rest days thrown in, along with our 8 year old son, and 6 year old daughter (on a tag-a-long). The Netherlands is such a wonderful place for cycling, and everyone we bumped into was so friendly. The route you have chosen was superb – beautiful quiet lanes and villages, but also the large cities. The directions were so easy to follow, and the additional points of interest of great use. Thank you again – it’s a holiday that we’ll all remember forever.”
