Our tour takes you along the Amstel River beyond the edge of town and through the Dutch polder landscape with its rectilinear ditches and dikes. We pass by a cool community of houseboats and see how it has transformed from a hippie community to one that’s loved by the upper class. We will explore the Amsterdamse Bos (forest) on the southwest side of town. The forest is a public park three times the size of New York’s Central Park which has a variety of magnificent nature areas, athletic fields, a 2-kilometre-long rowing lake, camping, swimming beaches and more. An excellent place to visit for those who want to get out of the centre of the city.

Windmills, clogs and cheese, we are going Dutch

We’ll also show you one of the few remaining authentic windmills and visit an eccentric and entertaining Dutch farmer at his cheese farm/clog factory. The Riekermolen windmill is also famous because the famous painter Rembrandt loved to go here. At the farm, we will have a small break for lunch and the farmer will demonstrate the traditional art of making wooden shoes and famous Gouda cheese. Afterwards, you’ll be able to have a look around in their little gift shop and taste some free samples of authentic Dutch Gouda cheese.

We will bike back to the city center, where we will go over Amsterdams most famous bike path under the Rijksmuseum.

Highlights on the Countryside Bike Tour:
  • Go through the lovely, green Vondelpark
  • Bike along the Amstel River
  • See a classic windmill (The Riekermolen) from up close
  • Meet Rembrandt next to the windmill
  • Explore the Amsterdamse Bos (forest)
  • Cross through the polder landscape that’s below sea level
  • Pass by beautiful houseboats
  • Visit a centuries-old cheese making and clog making farm
  • Bike under the Rijksmuseum

The person who processed our rental was quick to get us going, humorous and helpful with suggestions fo where to go.

I screwed up!
I accidentally nooked a morning tour thinking it was for the afternoon. It was due at 9:30am….bit of a problem as most of the people going were still in bed. One mad panicked call later, we were all sorted. They were very helpful,funny and provided a private countryside tour with the fanulous Wendolyn (not sure if i spelt that right). He’s a historian with a passion for sharing knowledge. We all loved the 4 hour tour, best apple pie and beer ever and he got us all back in one piece.
Highly reco
