Guided Tours – Country Bike Tour
Country Bike Tour
Amsterdam it’s not just the canal ring…
We have a beautiful countryside just at the door of the city!
Choose the Green Budget Country Tour to discover the less-known but not less famous Amsterdam-Noord area. Starting from our location near the Dam, be adventurous and cross the IJ-river with the ferry.
During 3 hours our guide will take you for a ride along the Noorder Park and the the urban Amsterdam-Noord area until you reach Nieuwendammerdijk, a typical dutch village built on a dyke with its small and colorful houses. From there you will follow the IJ-river crossing garden house areas and other cute villages as Schellingwoude and Durgerdam, located on the banks of the IJmeer. After that you will go further north on a dyke and go for a ride in the typical dutch polder landscape with its farms, animals as cows, sheeps and birds and its channel network.
On your way you will cross other country villages as Ransdorp with its famous and special square church tower. Also, before getting back to the ferry, you will stop in front of a windmill which is still active nowadays.
All along the tour you will stop in the best places to enjoy the landscape and our guides will give you information about the countryside.
Once you are back at the shop you will get a map of the tour and our guides will be more than happy to answer your last questions. Before leaving don’t forget to get your delicious organic apple to refuel.
