The Haarlem – Keukenhof e-bike tour for cyclefans who like to see tulips, coastline ánd the typical Dutch polder landscape. 60km Holland at its best

The cycle tour Haarlem – tulip fields is a 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 in 2020. Our destination is the spring flower garden Keukenhof.

Keukenhof visit during bike tour  from Haarlem

There’s 1.5 hours break in between to visit Keukenhof. Usualy visitors need more time. And participants love this Haarlem – Keukenhof e-bike tour because of the great variety of landscape and the lovely flower villages. They often want to stay longer at other sights and opt to see Keukenhof on another day.

  • What is the best time for the tulip bike tour Keukenhof?

This tour is best from:

21 March – 10 May 2020

20 March – 16 May 2021

19 March – 15 May 2022

Nature is unpredictable. Last years the best time to see the tulips was Mid-April. Due to the warmer winters tulips bloom earlier,  beginning of April. The end of March/  start of April is always my favorite time as you’ll still see the daffodils, smell the hyacinths and can enjoy the tulips. In May most tulips have been cut and fields will be empty. Although I can not garantee that you see tulip fields end of March, mid- May I will always do my best to bring you to at least 1 field.

  • How safe is the cycling route?

Roads are flat and although we do share roads with cars, cycling in the surroundings of Haarlem is comfortable. Especially when we get into the countryside. The route is bike-friendly. Besides, I keep an eye on you and the traffic and make sure you’re safe.

Our meeting point is a 20 minutes trainride from Amsterdam. I’ll send exact details on where we meet & how to get there after booking.

Sorry to hear! I’ll contact you to see if we can reschedule the tour. If there is no other option and you cancel 21 days prior to the bike tour I can still give back the full amount. Cancelation between 20 and 14 days means you’ll get 75 % back, 14-7 days means 50% and less than 7 days or no shows unfortunately means you get no refund.

  • What else is there to see & do in the region?

There many gems and special locations in the Flower Region. Flower villages, cheese farms, lakes, windmills. I’ll tell you all about it in the bike tour. If you want to cycle less, check the Leiden- Keukenhof bike tour. Or try something different like a The Hague bike tour.

  • Will we pass a cheese farm?

A cheese farm is not on the route. You can request a private tour so we can make this a tulip & cheese daytrip. When interested in a cheese farm tour, I can also recommend the Leiden or Gouda cheese bike tour.
