Holland Cycling & Boating Holidays in True Dutch Style

Holland-by-Bike specialise in bike and boat holidays and self-guided cycle tours in The Netherlands and Belgium. Why? Because cycling the green, flat lands and historic cities of Holland, biking around Friesland’s rolling lake district and sailing or cruising the waterways of our native Netherlands is simply our passion.

Holland is easy to reach, yet wonderfully worlds apart and we are keen to share. Our bike and boat holidays include everything from tall ships to luxurious Dutch barges and self-drive motor cruiser experiences. Like our hotel-to-hotel bike holidays, each of our tours can’t wait to see you exploring like a local - on two wheels!
