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.
Team challenge tulips & all

Flower fields and water
The first thing you think about when you hear Keukenhof area are tulips. Tulip and other spring flower fields.
