Bike & Barge Tours
Cruise down the waterways … in true Dutch style
What a wonderful way to see the sights of Holland and Belgium! With such an amazing web of rivers, canals and lakes and an outstanding network of cycle paths too, there really couldn’t be a better or more relaxing holiday combination.
At Holland-by-Bike, we offer a great selection of classic riverboats and historic barges to enjoy as your floating hotel on a wide selection of linear and circular bike and boat tour routes through the Low Countries. Enjoy gentle journeys, awesome scenery - and the real comfort and convenience of travelling to different places without needing to keep re-packing your things!
From MS Angela Esmee and MS Anna Maria Agnes to MS Fluvius and sister barges MS Magnifique and MS Magnifique II, each vessel very much has its own character with cabins and on board facilities ranging from comfortable to really rather luxurious.
Whether you’re touring the windmill world of South Holland, North Holland and Friesland or cruising down through Flanders from Amsterdam to Bruges or across to Brussels, all our bike and boat holidays operate on a full board basis with breakfast and an evening meal on board prepared by the experienced crew. A packed lunch is available to accompany your day rides on the bike and in the evenings, there is often a chance to explore the towns or cities where the vessel is moored overnight.
All daily cycle rides are either on a self-guided or guided tour basis. If there are days when you prefer not to cycle, then you are also welcome to skip the bike tour and relax on board during the cruise to the next destination. For your daily cycling adventures all route descriptions, information and mapping are provided – so you can simply choose the most relaxing option for you.
