Amsterdam: Windmills, Cheese & Clogs Countryside E-Bike Tour

1. Amsterdam: Windmills, Cheese & Clogs Countryside E-Bike Tour

Leave behind the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam by taking a ferry to the countryside and embarking on an e-bike tour just outside the city. Cycle through Broek in Waterland past canals, bridges, and historical farms with a guide. Then, visit an authentic cheese farm to see how cheese and clogs are made. Start your bike tour by taking the ferry to the north side of Amsterdam. See the Amsterdam Tower and the Eye Film Museum, a unique introduction to Amsterdam's Old Holland area. Afterward, cycle through the natural area of Waterland. This flat landscape offers views of moments that feel lost in time, as you encounter expansive fields and traditional Dutch farmers going about their daily lives. Cycle through the ancient villages of Broek, where time seems to have completely stopped. The land is protected by kilometers of dikes and pumping stations, allowing picturesque villages to blossom, and the region to become a hot spot for outdoor activities on land and on water. Finally, visit a windmill, and a local farm that produces cheese that is exported around the world.

We booked the e-bike tour because we wanted to see the countryside outside of Amsterdam. This tour did not disappoint! We had a small group (maybe 10 riders) and we were able to stop and learn from Aldo all about the rural area we were biking through. Aldo took time to provide history on the area but also allowed us time to take pictures and enjoy the sights. The cheese shop at the end was wonderful and welcoming. Our trip took longer than the 3 hours - but personally we were very happy for that. It was all around perfect. So amazing to experience the Netherlands outside of the city as well. Highly recommend this over a city tour and highly recommend Aldo! :)

Emily from the UK was such a a super guide. Really bubbly, positive and knowledgeable. Feel like we biked forever but it was so enjoyable. Took 2 ferries. Stopped at a windmill and a cheese farm. Lots of cows and sheep. Felt very rural and yes so close to Amsterdam. Lots f fun. Easy ride with e-bikes. All in good condition.

Awesome experience. If you are looking to get away from the city activities then this excursion through the Amsterdam country side is just the ticket you are looking for. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour guide and the activities experienced during our time together.

Great experience, getting a taste of the countryside, absolutely gorgeous. Guide (Aldo) was also very knowledgeable and made it interesting.

Really loved seeing the village of Waterland. Riding along the bike paths was absolutely beautiful.
