Keukenhof area flowers and sea

Tulip field bike tours

Spring, between mid-March to mid-May, the Keukenhof area north of Leiden and south of Amsterdam becomes one huge colorful carpet of tulips and other spring flowers. In the tulip field bike tours you not only cycle through these fields, you also meet a bulb grower, spot a windmill, see a few castles, feel the sea breeze, pass peaceful villages and get to know the local cafés.

Beach & dahlia bike tour

Summer and early autumn, between mid-July to October, are the ideal seasons to experience the Dutch beachlife and enjoy the summer flower fields in the Keukenhof area. In the Holland beach & summer flower bike tour we cycle through the Dutch countryside in search of these gladiolus, lily or dahlia fields. There is even a moment to pick them ourselves! Enroute we stop by a unique tea garden or have a drink at beach resort Noordwijk. We might even spot a windmill on our way.

Keukenhof area windmill water tulips

Flower fields and water

The first thing you think about when you hear Keukenhof area are tulips. Tulip and other spring flower fields. When you explore this Dutch region by bike you’ll soon discover the 18 km long coastline in the west and the huge lake area in the east. Follow the main canal south, pass by windmills and dairy farms and you’ll reach the lovely city of Leiden. Take a route north past estates, castles and countryside and you’ll end up in the historical city of Haarlem and eventually Amsterdam

Keukenhof area: more than tulips

The Keukenhof area is better known as Bollenstreek in Dutch. In the bulb flower region – bulb = bol, region = streek)  bulb growers grow tulips, hyacinths and other spring flowers. In summer or early autumn  you’ll be amazed by the summer flower fields. Dahlia, gladiolus and even lilies make your heart go b(l)oom.

The surprises of the Bulb Flower Region

Verita’s Visit bike tours and team events in the Keukenhof area are full of surprises.

  • You meet the local flower growers and the millers
  • Pick your own fruit or flowers in one of the many gardens
  • have a high tea at a castle
  • find fantastic farms to have a drink or a bite
  • celebrate a local festival in one of the villages
  • create your own tulip

The Keukenhof area flower and sea bike tours and group activities mainly take place in spring, summer and early autumn.

Gouda food tour cheese and stroopwafel

Gouda Food Tour

 

Gouda is home to cheese ánd stroopwafels. Not one, not two, but three different kind of syrup waffles are made in this beautiful Golden Age Dutch city.

In this food tour you get to bake your own stroopwafel! Nothing more yummie than a fresh, warm stroopwafel.

There is cheese to taste at every corner. Gouda cheese of different ages and Holland cheeses, all different in taste and origin.

This food tour is a great team building event or group outing for the autumn and winter season. We’ll walk short distances – from one local shop to another- and do a tad bit of sightseeing.

Sounds yummie, how do I book?

Windmills, beach, food & flower fields

 

Countryside bike tours and team events from Amsterdam include the Keukenhof area, with its tulip fields and other spring & summer flower fields. Verita’s Visit Holland most popular bike tour is the tulip field cycle tour from Mid- March to Mid- May when the spring flowers color this region. 

Did you know the region also has a great coastline, lots of lakes, castles and windmills? A lot to discover in a half or full day trip from Amsterdam. Any season. Great to explore Holland by bike. Or boat. Or horse and wagon.

Taste the authentic Dutch way of life

Gouda cheese making is definitely one of my favorite group events which I arrange for tour operators, bus companies, travel agents. It is also a great group outing for family, friends or as a company event. The cheese making workshop makes you taste the authentic Dutch way of life, you meet the cheese farmer and get to use your hands. You taste the different Dutch cheeses, see the Dutch countryside with its thatched roofed houses, meadows  and cows from nearby . Great to combine with a boat or bike ride. 🎉 get #socialwithalocal 🎉

Countryside tours and team events from Amsterdam 

With Verita’s Visit you taste the authentic Dutch way of life, outside Amsterdam.  In the countryside bike tours and team events from Amsterdam you take a peek behind the scenes of local festivals such as the Flower Parade Keukenhof area or make your own typical Dutch products. No cycle tour or outdoor event is the same, millers, greenhouse or tulip growers,  and cheese farmers always have new exciting stories to tell, making every visit an authentic Dutch experience full of improvisations.
