Overview

Gentle biking along South Holland's fabled low country and Flemish landscape. After a bike tour of Amsterdam, we will ride through Zeeland's polders (land enclosed by dikes and managed as a unit below the local water table), visit the UNESCO cultural heritage site, Kinderdijk, with its 19 windmills in a line, see the massive lock and wind farm of Kreekraksluis, discover historic, quaint Ghent, and see the work of master painter, Rubens. We will navigate the port of Antwerp to the city itself, known as the diamond center and capital of cool, and finish with a night at a 4-star spa hotel in perhaps the most beautiful Flemish city of all, Bruges. Accommodations: 3 star hotel, 4 star Hotel/Spa Duke's Palace, customized boutique boat, all double share with private en suite facilities.
