Verita’s Visit loves creating the perfect cycle tour for you. Besides the regular bike tours tulip fields that start at Keukenhof, which you can already do on any bike you like ( just ask!) I also offer fully customised bike rides. The following bike tours tulips are examples and show that you can practically start anywhere you like, do a bike tour for as long as you want, on the bike that you want. Of course, you can also add a picnic in the midst of the flower fields to your special bike tour tulips, a visit to the flower bulb museum, stay in a special accommodation or have an exclusive flower themed lunch or dinner in one of the cute flower villages.
All these cycle tours take place in the period the Keukenhof is open. In 2019 the tulip garden is open from 21 March till 19 May.
Here in summer? Check out the fabulous summer flower tour and go dahlia!
Leiden – Keukenhof Bike tour (40km)
Special Bike Tour tulips Leiden- Keukenhof
The cycle tour Leiden- Keukenhof is a classic. We start our bike ride in Leiden, the city with 23 km of canals. Following one of these canals we head in direction of the Keukenhof, the annual spring flower garden. This flower park is situated in the cosy flower town of Lisse, 35 km from Amsterdam. Enroute we see locals stop for a picnic on their boat tour in the Leiden lake area, hear the chirping of birds in trees full of young spring leaves. And then, when we turn the corner the magic starts. Millions of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths in richly scented fields of gold, red, purple. From now on we’ll cycle through the fields of tulips and other spring flowers, all the way to the flower festival Keukenhof. At the Keukenhof entrance I’ll will give you some tips on what to see in this famous spring flower park. A couple of hours later we meet again at the entrance and head back to Leiden. But the cycle tour Keukenhof doesn’t end before we have taken some power flower selfies in the midst of the flower fields and a stop at a small tulip garden to pick our own bouquet of tulips.
Special Full day e- bike tour tulips Haarlem & dunes
The cycle tour Haarlem – tulip fields is a really relaxed bike ride as it is done on a e-bike. This way we can easily reach many of the quaint Dutch flower villages in the bulb flower area, take in the lovely panoramas and typical Dutch scenes such as black-and-white cows in the green meadows, windmills near canals and of course the dazzling fields of spring flowers. The landscape is just amazing. Besides a good amount of richly scented hyacinth fields and multi-coloured tulip fields, the cycle route also takes us through a forest and dune area. The cycle route through the area of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths is not set, during the bike ride we can opt to go and cycle past the North Sea coastline, have a coffee looking out on the tulip fields or visit one of the many flower festivals that take place during this season. Our destination is the spring flower garden Keukenhof.
Summer Flower bike tour
The flower strip near Amsterdam is in full bloom 2 times a year. Yep, not just in spring time, when Keukenhof flower gardens are open, also in summer. July – October the dahlias – summer tulips as I call them- bloom in abundance. This fantastic summer flower is hip again and you can spot lots of varieties on this summer flower bike tour. Not a fan of dahlias? Discover the world of summer flowers in the Dutch flower region!
If you think you’ve seen it all during spring, come in summer. The route we’ll be cycling is totally different from the spring flower bike routes. We start at a beach resort, follow the coastline, stop at multiple places for great pictures, visit a greenhouse, have a coffee near the lake
