Holland-Cycling.com is an internet guide to cycling in Holland. We do not organise cycling holidays ourselves. To help you on your way, we made a selection of the most popular cycling holidays offered by Dutch tour operators. The information on this page is provided by the tour operator.

A promise of silence and beauty

If you’re into silent, lonely places in the back of beyond, then look no further: this is the bike tour for you! Heather moorland, heath, peatland, woods and wetland play leading roles in this spectacle.

Heathlands of Drenthe Tour

Tour operator: Dutch Bike Tours
Type of holiday: self-guided, family tour
Luggage transport: included
Accommodation: hotel
Number of days: 5 days
Price: from € 364,-

Idyllic country villages, prehistoric megalithic burial chambers and quiet lakes are strong supporting roles. Story lines tell of prehistoric Drenthe, of peat digging and sheep herding, of WWII and of modern nature management.

Rural Drenthe Province, in the north east of the Netherlands, has an enviable network of cycling paths and beautiful scenery to go with it. This tour is especially recommended for August - beginning of September when flowering heather plants light up the dry grassy sand plains and the heath turns a lovely mauve colour.

As on all our carefree cycle tours, we provide luggage transfer and excellent accommodation.
