Holland & Belgium

Amsterdam to Bruges 8 Days - Classic


Although the Dutch didn’t invent the bicycle, almost everyone in the country (including the queen) rides one; the cycling infrastructure in both villages and throughout the countryside is superb. Cycling from the cosmopolitan city of Amsterdam to the charming village of Bruges, Belgium, you will experience the best of these two countries. From the Unesco World Heritage site of the Kerkenhof gardens to the chocolate makers in Bruges, this is a unique journey in Europe.



College Hotel, Amsterdam
Set in Amsterdam’s fashion and museum district, this upscale hotel in a late 19th century former school building has rooms around a courtyard, a trendy bar and a fine restaurant occupying the former school gym, serving exciting “New Dutch’ cuisine.

Best Western Plus, Gouda

Set in a former redbrick factory building, this hotel overlooks the canal with modern interior and large airy rooms, chic bar and restaurant.

Groothofd Hotel, Dordrecht

Set on a cobblestone street overlooking the harbor, this 4-star hotel is walking distance from everything in the historic center. The rooms are somewhat modest some view views over the harbor.

Mauritz, Willemstad

We loved this hotel as soon as we walked in. With its contemporary and hip vibe, there is a warm welcome and comfortable guest rooms. With its Dutch colonial style and great restaurant on site, this is the ideal place to stay in Willemstad.


Hostellerie Schuddebeurs - Hampshire Hotel, Schuddebeurs

This is a memorable and distinctive inn with a quiet setting with an excellent in-house dining room so you don’t need to leave the warmth of this property to dine.



Hotel Aan de Dam, Middleburg

Set in a 16th century townhouse, this upscale, old-world hotel is located in the historic center and describes its breakfast as “regional, fresh artisanal and organic breakfast” - now there is a mouthful.



Hotel Ter Duinen, Bruges

A charming hotel with bags of character. Contemporary sun lit rooms all in natural tones. Gorgeous Conservatory breakfast rooms and innercourtyard. An understated spot with plenty of charisma.
