Pin It
A visit to Holland is always a pleasure, but particularly so in spring, when the country’s legendary tulip fields burst forth in a kaleidoscope of colors.

On this unforgettable biking vacation, we’ll delight in these beautiful blooms, from the lavishly landscaped gardens at Keukenhof to the world-famous Aalsmeer flower auction. We’ll spend our nights aboard a private barge, and our days cycling through the verdant Dutch countryside, pausing to discover picturesque villages and well-preserved medieval cities … explore the inner workings of an iconic windmill … sample the tasty offerings of a cheese farm near Gouda … and much, much more.
