Holland & Belgium Bike & Boat: Amsterdam to Bruges

Enjoy the privacy of VBT’s exclusive barge as you journey through the charming canals of Holland and Belgium.

In the evenings, enjoy delicious meals of local specialties prepared by your boat’s on-board chef—plus special treats such as a Belgian beer tasting, and a night of festive camaraderie at the home of our Dutch friends. With VBT’s deep roots in Holland and Belgium, there are many opportunities to experience the region’s rich cultural heritage with the people who live here.

  • Join a local guide for a boat tour of Ghent, whose history dates to around 600 AD.
  • View the famous Kinderdijk windmills, a UNESCO Heritage site.

Your vacation is about to begin! Spend your first night aloft and arrive ready for an unforgettable trip.

A VBT representative will greet you at the airport to start your adventure off right. A complimentary car service will whisk you to your centrally located hotel. From here, you are perfectly positioned to explore this charming city at your leisure.

After an included breakfast, make sure your luggage is packed and ready to be transported to the barge. At 9:30 a.m., meet one of your VBT trip leaders in the hotel lobby for a walk to city center, passing some of the city’s highlights and taking some free time for lunch on your own. You will board the barge at 1:45 p.m. and depart at 2:00 p.m. At the docks, meet the barge crew and your VBT trip leaders, who will welcome you aboard with refreshments. Cruise out of Amsterdam on the IJ waterway, catching glimpses of houseboats and floating houses.

Later, gather with the group for a welcome dinner on board while cruising. You moor overnight in Vianen, a small city on the river Lek.

 

Today’s Ride Choices

Afternoon: Nigtevecht to Breukelen Warm-up — 17 km (10 miles)

What to Expect:

The warm-up ride starts at Nigtevecht, at the connector between the old river and the modern Amsterdam-Rhine canal. Although the road is quiet, it is narrow, and you will encounter some light traffic. You will cross the original Brooklyn Bridge into Breukelen town, the home of the first settlers in New Amsterdam (New York).

Cumulative Distance Range: 17 km (10 miles)

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

After breakfast, cycle along the small canals of the rural region of Krimpenerwaard. You will trace the route of the river Lek through Schoonhoven, known as the “Silver City” for its long silversmithing tradition. Continue to Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage site where 19 of Holland’s famous windmills—some more than 260 years old—adorn the horizon. Then you can ride (or cruise, if you prefer) to Dordrecht, one of Holland’s oldest towns and birthplace of the state of the Netherlands, founded by William of Orange. Enjoy dinner on board in Dordrecht, where the barge moors overnight. After dinner, stroll through the city’s historic center to get a glimpse of its rich past with one of your trip leaders.

The next stretch leads you through villages in the Krimpenerwaard Polder, where a small fietspad (bike path) takes you through private backyards. In the small old city of Schoonhoven, choose a restaurant for lunch on your own. You can board your barge, disembark, or continue riding here.

From Schoonhoven, you’ll cross the River Lek by ferry. The route continues to Nieuwpoort town and into the Alblasserwaard Polder.

Your bike ride begins with a guided tour of this town.

Then cycle to Tholen, once an island in the middle of the large Zeeland streams where many people fished for a living. Today, it is connected to the mainland, but it remains a picturesque village with relics of an eventful past. Pedal through quiet farmlands, and pause for a picnic lunch at historic locks before arriving in Tholen. Here, you will rejoin the barge and enjoy dinner on board. Afterward, we’ve invited some local families to meet you at the barge and accompany you back to their homes for an evening of camaraderie and cultural exchange.

Begin your route with a small ferry ride across the Scheldt River followed by  a short spin to view a special bike-and-pedestrian tunnel under the river. Afterward, cycle through typical Flanders’ countryside, crisscross through agricultural and quiet suburban areas to reach Kruibeke with its Wednesday market. You’ll arrive back at the Scheldt pausing for lunch in Rupelmonde, with its unique tidal watermill and statue of the mathematician and mapmaker Mercator. He was the world’s premier geographer in the 16th century and created both the terrestrial and celestial globes. In the afternoon, you will follow the river again, on either side, crossing it by bridge and with ferries. This section of the ride is most scenic, over the Temse Bridge, to the city of Temse, once a trading center. Next, ride on the Scheldt Dike to the Mariekerke ferry. Dendermonde is reached by another huge bridge. Then continue cycling to our mooring in St. Amands.

Cumulative Distance Range: 26 – 60 km (16 – 37 miles)

After breakfast, cycle from St. Amands to Ghent. Located at the confluence of the Scheldt and Leie rivers, this “City of 200 Bridges” was founded around 600 AD and boasts many beautiful buildings dating to medieval times, when the textile industry brought great wealth to Ghent’s merchants.

After a leisurely lunch on board the barge, embark a local boat for an excursion into the center of Ghent with a guide. You’ll also have time to explore this attractive medieval canal city on your own. Many old patrician houses have been preserved in the city center. One historic building is the 1425 Cloth Makers’ Hall, where textile merchants met and traded. The city’s major church is St. Baaf’s Cathedral, constructed and enhanced in various styles over many centuries. In the cathedral, admire a number of masterpieces of medieval painting, including Jan van Eyck’s famous Adoration of the Lamb. Try one of the local restaurants for dinner on your own.

Cumulative Distance Range: 40 km (25 miles)

The barge rejoins the main canal and meets us all in Bruges in the late afternoon. Alternately, if you have chosen the longer ride option, you will cycle to Bruges with an extra countryside ride via Damme.

Regarded by many as Europe’s best-preserved medieval city, Bruges is laced by a network of canals lined by beautiful houses built by wealthy textile merchants. A 350-foot (106.7-meter), 13th-century belfry tower, which houses Europe’s most famous carillon, presides over the city’s Market Square. You have ample time to marvel at the medieval ambiance of this lovely city and to walk its winding streets. Dine on the barge one last time this evening.

Cumulative Distance Range: 25 – 51 km (16 – 32 miles)

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

After an included breakfast, say goodbye to your barge crew and one trip leader, then walk through Bruges’s winding streets to the hotel with one of you trip leaders, enjoying an orientation of the historic city center along the way. There is so much to see and do just around the corner. VBT provides you with city information that includes recommendations.

Bruges was northern Europe’s leading trade center between the 13th and 15th centuries, driven largely by its thriving wool and textile industries. The city has been famous for its fine lace for 500 years; you may wish to visit one of the small cottage industries revolving around lacemaking. Enjoy dinner on your own tonight.

Included Meals: Breakfast

From your centrally located hotel, walk the cobbled streets of this enchanting town. Be sure to go to the top of the Belfort Tower for a panoramic view of the splendid medieval cityscape. You may want to visit the 12th-century Basilica of the Holy Blood, said to contain a small vial of Christ’s blood that was brought to Bruges from the Holy Land in 1149. Or stop by the Memling Museum, housed in one of the oldest surviving medieval hospitals in Europe.

Tonight, try one of Bruges’ wonderful restaurants for dinner on your own using VBT’s city information as your guide.

My first VBT Bike and Barge trip from Amsterdam to Bruges was everything I expected it would be. It is unusual to have your fantasies about a trip come to fruition. The bikes were like new, the guides were low key and very friendly, the chef on board was like having your own culinary chef. The boat itself was very inviting and comfortable. Having only 20 travelors also made it very warm and friendly with everyone willing to lend a helping hand if needed. 5 * for VBT

Holland and Belgium Bike & Boat: Amsterdam

This was our fourth trip with VBT and wonderful like the previous trips. Trip leaders were delightful, knowledgeable, and helpful. Accommodations on the Sailing Home were very comfortable and delicious food was served. Daily biking was through emerald pastures speckled with cows and sheep, beautiful homes and water! You won't regret it!
