- Difficulty Level
Level 1: Occasional
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.
Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.
Level 2: Recreational
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.
Walking – 8-12 km (5-7 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.
Level 3: Enthusiast
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.
Level 4: Avid
Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.
Level 5: Expert
Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.
See what inspired the Dutch masters
Tilt at windmills as you pedal the picturesque coast that inspired the Dutch Masters. Not many get to ride in Zeeland! Savour fresh oysters at a picnic aboard a fishing boat. Drool over traditional savoury pannekoeken (pancakes). Soak up the local jenever (gin). And stay at the 12-room Manoir Inter Scaldes (replete with a 3 Michelin-star restaurant).

Ride through kaleidoscopic Dutch tulip bulb fields where our expert guide shares origin stories. Later, feel the fresh sea breeze, as you ride through the wild and romantic North Sea coastal dunes.
Ride to the beautiful university town of Leiden, where our local guide shows us what makes the old town tick. This evening, stroll into the heart of The Hague for a tasting of Holland's famous jenever (Dutch gin).
Pedal into the gorgeous Groene Hart region, where you'll get acquainted with the Dutch countryside before stopping for lunch in Gouda (yes, as in Gouda cheese). Tonight, unwind over a farm-to-table dinner.
Make your way to our friend Ineke's cheese farm to learn how Gouda cheese is made. Then, pedal through UNESCO Kinderdijk, the largest surviving agglomeration of traditional windmills in Europe.
Pay a visit to Yerseke for a private tour of the shellfish auction and a taste of fresh oysters. A spectacular evening awaits, after a sumptuous dinner, meet the master behind the three-star Michelin experience!
Enjoy a farewell breakfast at the hotel before saying tot ziens.
Pedal through charm-filled towns.
Van Rossum, Woerden
This chic boutique hotel was born out of a clever renovation of the town’s historic armoury. Visible beams meet contemporary design in each distinctive room. The property's lively open-plan restaurant attracts many locals and the food served is home-grown, home-raised or at least locally sourced.
Manoir Inter Scaldes, Kruiningen
Inter Scaldes is one of the Netherland’s few Relais & Châteaux properties; a charming modern country retreat centered around its extraordinary cuisine. Obtaining a third Michelin star in the fall of 2017, our hosts Claudia and Jannis continuously strive for perfection in the world of hospitality and fine cuisine. The Manoir, which has 12 stylish hotel rooms, provides guests with the opportunity to visit Zeeland's coast and countless picturesque towns and villages.
Hotel Des Indes, The Hague
A former 19th century palace, Hotel Des Indes is located on the beautiful Lange Voorhout, near the medieval centre of the Binnenhof and the Mauritshuis. This five star deluxe hotel is part of the history of The Hague with its yellow façade that embraces you before you enter. It offers 92 guest rooms and suites that blend contemporary amenities with iconic architecture.
Our trip to Holland was amazing. We were able to experience so many facets of this incredible country. Our guides Alice, Alessio and Abby were just wonderful. After eight B&R trips, this was our best yet. Hard bar to exceed!— Carol Llewellyn

Sometimes your B&R trip simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in region either before or after your official B&R trip, and need assistance making those plans, your B&R Travel Advisor can help.
Call us to create an independent travel experience that fits your needs—we can also arrange for a local guide.
Spend more time in Amsterdam
We highly recommend that you spend a couple days in Amsterdam before your B&R trip begins. Amsterdam is a great city and well worth at least a day’s visit (you could spend this long in the van Gogh Museum alone). Its network of canals, the balance struck between historic buildings and modern architecture, great shopping plus lovely patios that provide great people watching make this a wonderful city that often doesn’t feel as big as it is.
