Day one of the summer 2 day e-bike tour heather
We meet at noon on the 15th of August in the 4 star hotel Mooirivier. The hotel is located at the riverside, in the picturesque town of Dalfsen. After checking in we get on our electric bikes to explore the surroundings. We stop at a traditional local festival in the nearby town to taste the artisanally smoked eel & other homemade products. We cycle along the river, see the historical villages Ommen and Vlisteren, stop at farmer’s shops to taste more typical regional products and enjoy the river & polder landscape. There are canoes & boats at our disposal at our next stop, so we can explore the area in a different way. In the evening we visit the hanseatic city Zwolle, where we’ll have dinner (on own cost) in one of the best restaurants in the city. With our bellies full and our heads full of impressions we head back to the hotel for a good night sleep.
Day two of the 2 Day Holland Heather Cycling Holiday
On the 16th of August we meet after breakfast, at 11 AM at the reception. Our electric bikes are ready to take us to to the heather and forest area. This amazing nature area is on the other side of the river Ijssel. We cross the river in a very special way: by bike ferry. This way we really see the river from all different positions. In the hanseatic town of Hattem we stop for coffee & cake (own cost) before heading to the Provence of the Netherlands. The purple heather is nicely altered with forest and meadows, making it an immensely divers landscape. We have lunch at a café/ restaurant (own cost) in the middle of nature before we head back to the hotel.
