Amsterdam: Windmills, Cheese & Clogs Countryside E-Bike Tour

1. Amsterdam: Windmills, Cheese & Clogs Countryside E-Bike Tour

Leave behind the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam by taking a ferry to the countryside and embarking on an e-bike tour just outside the city. Cycle through Broek in Waterland past canals, bridges, and historical farms with a guide. Then, visit an authentic cheese farm to see how cheese and clogs are made. Start your bike tour by taking the ferry to the north side of Amsterdam. See the Amsterdam Tower and the Eye Film Museum, a unique introduction to Amsterdam's Old Holland area. Afterward, cycle through the natural area of Waterland. This flat landscape offers views of moments that feel lost in time, as you encounter expansive fields and traditional Dutch farmers going about their daily lives. Cycle through the ancient villages of Broek, where time seems to have completely stopped. The land is protected by kilometers of dikes and pumping stations, allowing picturesque villages to blossom, and the region to become a hot spot for outdoor activities on land and on water. Finally, visit a windmill, and a local farm that produces cheese that is exported around the world.

lots of fun and tour guide was best one in amsterdam. actually lasted well over the time and saw dutch countryside. Very much worth it. Our group was small and thus personal attention touring small township. learning about Holland

Aldo was an amazing guide and the route was just beautiful. The cheese stop was fun. I’m glad everyone wanted to stop and get a hot drink snd sit and rest for a minute. This was much needed. Thank you for an amazing experience.

Bastion was amazing. What a beautiful place with warm, friendly people. The E-bikes made the ride effortless and enjoyable. I’ve never seen windmills and cows so close-up! We highly recommend this tour.

Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. He made sure we were comfortable with our bikes and rode safely. We covered about 20 miles learning a lot and getting some good exercise.

Great countryside e-bike tour! Highly recommended.
