Head off on a self-guided cycling holiday in Holland, pedalling from one friendly, family-run hotel to the next while your luggage is transported. We provide a high-quality bike and our comprehensively researched route notes, leaving you free to explore at your own pace.
Cycling holidays in Holland are an enjoyable way to discover the archetypal landscapes of canals, dikes, traditional windmills and, if you’re visiting in spring, colourful fields of tulips. In the true spirit of a Slow holiday, break as often as you like to admire it all – you’re not part of a group, and have no luggage to carry (we take care of that, along with providing route notes and ensuring the arrangements run like clockwork), so don’t rush…
When it comes to cycling holidays, Holland has few equals. Unsurprisingly in a country in which there are more bicycles than people, the infrastructure is very bicycle-friendly, making cycling in Holland a real joy. Our Dutch cycling holidays explore the countryside surrounding Amsterdam – and the capital itself – taking full advantage of the network of well-signposted cycle routes. Given the largely flat terrain, you can cover relatively large distances on cycling holidays in the Netherlands, adding to the sense of fulfilment.

Are our cycling holidays in Holland right for you?
All our cycling holidays are aimed at ‘amateur’ cyclists, but some are more easy-going than others. Before you opt for one of our cycling holidays in Holland, see our grading system below to be sure that they are right for you. (Our grading system assumes you are using a ‘regular’ bike, so if you choose an e-bike, bear in mind that the cycling will be considerably easier.)
Easy cycling for all with shorter days mainly on the flat, but some gentle ascents.
Easy-to-moderate cycling featuring undulating routes with more frequent short ascents, and a mix of shorter and longer days.
Moderate cycling with some longer, steady uphill sections, and longer days.
Fairly strenuous cycling featuring longer days with some sustained climbs. (We don't currently have any holidays at this level.)
Cycling holidays in Holland, Inntravel style
Our cycling holidays in Holland – in common with all Inntravel holidays – are based on three cornerstones: pretty scenery; comfortable and genuinely welcoming hotels hand-picked by us; and traditional local cooking.
Route notes you can trust
We pride ourselves on providing accurate, comprehensive route guides, which we update constantly so that you can have complete confidence in them. While steering you from A to B, they’ll fill you in about places of interest and local culture, so that you enjoy the richest possible holiday experience – all at your own pace.
Your holiday, your choice
Independent, non-group holidays enable you to stay in smaller, one-of-a-kind hotels, and plan each day to suit you. The benefits don’t stop there. You can choose when to start, if or at which hotels to add extra nights, and whether to travel to your holiday by air, rail or ferry – we’ll book travel arrangements tailored to your requirements.
Make the most of our expertise
The expertise that we’ve built up since starting in 1984 is greatly valued by our customers. The friendly experts with whom you speak by phone or converse via email share a passion for travel and have first-hand knowledge of our cycling holidays. They’ll be pleased to answer your questions and put together your ideal holiday.
