What you'll do

The banks of the Zaan river, a few kilometers north of Amsterdam, is the set of one of the most photogenic village of windmills in the Netherlands. The famous painter Claude Monet, during his stay in Holland, found here his main source of inspiration! It is your turn to discover this unique place, a postcard setting which represents perfectly the Holland of old times.

The village of windmills has become a protected regional reserve, the perfect location for a splendid bike tour, led by one of hour touristic guide who will share with you the history and traditions of Holland.
Other things to note
There are different sizes of bikes for children 5 to 12 years old. Babies go on a seat attached to the luggage rack. For children who are likely to get tired quickly, there is an excellent alternative: a tricycle that hangs on the parents' bike.
