Discover the Dune and Bulb Region of South Holland. Within cycling distance of your hotel in Noordwijkerhout you will find two of the Netherlands’ famous seaside resorts as well as the ‘Keukenhof’ (the world’s largest flower garden). The cities of Leiden and The Hague can also be reached by bike. Amsterdam and Delft are only an hour away on public transport.

Stepping out the door of your hotel, you will find yourself in the middle of the Dutch bulb fields. If there aren’t any tulips in bloom near the hotel, try the Keukenhof. In this beautiful park you will find 32 hectares of flowering bulbs and plants. For a microcosmic view of the Netherlands, visit Madurodam, an interactive miniature park. The city of Delft is known for its historic  town centre, the famous painter Vermeer and, of course, Delftware.

Frequently asked questions

  • What will happen should I encounter problems along the way?

    Luckily, this rarely occurs, since our bicycles are virtually new and well-maintained.  Nevertheless, should you encounter a problem, then a quick phone call to our local agent will be sufficient.  He’ll ensure that you are back on your bike as soon as possible and, should it be necessary, you can exchange your bike through him.  We assume that you are able to fix a flat tire yourself, and for this purpose, we will provide you with a repair kit and bike pump.

  • When are the rental bicycles delivered?

    The rental bicycles are as a rule delivered on the evening of the day of arrival and must be returned upon arrival at the last hotel.

  • Does a support vehicle accompany us?

    Our experience has taught us that virtually every cyclist is able to make it to the next hotel without difficulties, since you’ll be setting your own pace and have the whole day for the journey.  Should circumstances render you unable to cycle further, then our agent will obligingly find you the best manner of public transportation and/or taxi.  The costs, in such a case, must be self-incurred.

  • Can I bring along my own bicycle?

    Yes, you may.  This has no bearing on the total cost of the trip, however, please state this at time of booking.  Sometimes an additional charge may be requested for the bicycle when transfering from one place to another.

  • What can I expect of the hotels along the way?

    For our trips, we generally utilize good 2-3 star hotels with a bathroom in each room. The accommodations vary a great deal, ranging from a very luxurious hotel to a simple chambre d’hôte and from a family hotel to a former cognac estate.
