An exciting adventure week for young people Sailing, cycling, walking, exploring. We tour Amsterdam, Leiden, Haarlem & Zaanse Schans sailing from each destination on our converted barge hotel
This tour offers an attractive combination of towns and countryside in Holland. It starts with a first day in Amsterdam followed by a sailing trip right across the centre of Amsterdam.
Soon after having left the city behind, we cycle among the larger Dutch towns which are in beautiful rural area: the Green Heart. One moment you’ll be cycling in the middle of quiet lakes, the next you’ll experience the old Dutch atmosphere in the historical centre of towns like Haarlem where we spend 2 nights and Leiden (and beach town nearby) where we moor and explore for a further 2 days.
The final night before we return to Amsterdam is in Zaanse Schans which is acknowledged as one of the highlights of the Netherlands. Be part of a vibrant and stunning living and working community that dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s packed with wooden windmills, barns, houses and museums and built in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style, relocated here piece by piece since 1961. A guide will take you on a walking tour of Zaanse Schans. You will visit the paint mills, the oil mills or sawmills and view a range of traditional crafts.
