Bike and Barge: Amsterdam to Bruges - September 18 - 26, 2024

How about a bike and barge trip through the canals, rivers, historic towns and Zeeland waterways from Amsterdam to Bruges starting September 18 for 9 days. Upon arrival in Amsterdam we will stay one night at the NH Caransa hotel, breakfast included, then board our barge at 12:30 on the 19th, The Liza Marleen is a premium barge with comfortable cabins with twin beds (2 to a cabin).

Breakfast, packed lunches and three-course dinners await us every day. All for $2110*.  Regular bikes and helmets are included in our fee (electric bikes are an additional $119.90), as well as a tour guide on our rides and through towns. GPS and maps are available for those who wish to venture without the guide.

Airfare, alcoholic beverages, museum and other fees, tips are not included. Daily bike rides take us through fantastic scenery and towns.  The Dutch 17th century Golden Age and the heyday of the Flemish trading cities of the Middle Ages are united in this route. Amsterdam, Gouda, Windmills of Kinderdijk, the Delta Works, and the Flemish towns Ghent and Bruges are the highlights.

Sign up early - this is a great trip for 20 persons max
